"For remember, these dead women were not great as the world counts greatness; some of them were quite poor women who had laboured much. Yet they have become a moral force in your land. They will enrich your history."

Author: Emily Hobhouse
Context: Extract from the original speech by Emily Hobhouse on 16 December 1913 at the unveiling of the National Women’s Memorial
