Women of the Causes
In the course of time, I became . . . a householder, a property-owner, a taxpayer, and the regular employer of five persons.
My experience, therefore, has been more varied than that of most women, and I know something of the interests both of the woman who works and of the woman property-owner, the taxpayer, and the employer.
I can say with positiveness that there never was a moment when the possession of a vote would not have been a hindrance and a burden to me.
Molly Elliot Seawell, from The Ladies Battle, 1911
