" We women, who have had our feet bound from early childhood, have suffered untold pain and misery, for which our parents showed no pity... Let there be thorough enlightenment on the subject of foot-binding, and progress in the matter of equal rights for men and women will surely follow." - Qiu Jin
"Women must get educated and strive for their own independence; they can't just go on asking the men for everything. The young intellectuals are all chanting, "Revolution, Revolution," but I say the revolution will have to start in our homes, by achieving equal rights for women."
"Preventing girls from going to school is the way to bring the world into catastrophe."
