    Today's comedian has a cross to bear that he built himself. A comedian of the older generation did an "act" and he told the audience, "This is my act." Today's comic is not doing an act. The audience assumes he's telling the truth. What is truth today may be a damn lie next week.

    The greatest block today in the way of woman's emancipation is the church, the canon law, the Bible and the priesthood.
    (Elizabeth Cady Stanton (1815-1902), U.S. suffragist, social reformer, and author. As quoted in History of Woman Suffrage, vol. 5, ch. 1, by Ida Husted Harper (1922). From a paper sent to the thirty-third annual convention of the National Woman Suffrage Association and read aloud on May 30, 1901, by her longtime colleague and closest friend, Susan B. Anthony (1820-1906). At this point, Anthony and Stanton, both in their eighties, were "Honorary Presidents" of the Association. Anthony had opposed Stanton's submitting this paper, urging her instead to send one of her usual rousing arguments on behalf of suffrage. Stanton refused, saying that such statements were passe; creator of a controversial Woman's Bible (1895-1898), she had become very interested in the roles played by theology and the church in suppressing women's rights.)
