I ask no favors

“I ask no favors for my sex,” wrote Sarah Grimke, who was born in 1792. “All I ask of our brethren is that, they will take their feet from off our necks and permit us to stand upright on that ground which God designed us to occupy.”

I am reading about Sarah Grimke, an early activist for abolition and women’s rights, in Sue Monk Kidd’s book The Invention of Wings.
