I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. I have a dream today.

When a man gets up to speak, people listen then look. When a woman gets up, people look; then if they like what they see, they listen.

If you prick us do we not bleed? If you tickle us do we not laugh? If you poison us do we not die? And if you wrong us shall we not revenge?

Whatever women do, they must do twice as well as men to be thought half as good. Luckily, this is not difficult.
