Margaret Anna Fridays

Every Friday, I’m going to share a quote from the founder of my groovy sisters, Margaret Anna Cusack, known in religion as Mother Francis Clare. This week’s installment …

We must then consider the conditions under which humanity exists before we can clearly understand the position of woman. She was created on an intellectual, social and moral equality with man. In the terrestrial paradise we find two perfect souls and two perfect bodies. We find an absolute union of thought, will and purpose. We find life under exactly the same conditions. This was the divine appointment and the divine plan -- "Male and female created He them;" a distinction of sex is the only difference.
Women's Work in Modern Society, 1874
