Theodore Roosevelt was ahead of his times, when it came to women’s rights

“I think there can be no question that women should have equal rights with men.”

“Women should have free access to every field of labor which they care to enter, and when their work is as valuable as that of a man it should be paid as highly.”

“I do not think the women should assume the man’s name.”

“Working women have the same need to protection that working men have.”

–Theodore Roosevelt
