"O wondrous ! how little understood, --
Entrusted to the mother's mind along
To fashion genius, form the soul for good,
Inspire a West, or train a Washington !
- Mrs. Hale in Poetical Quotations, 1849.

HOW AMERICAN WOMEN SHOULD VOTE. -- "I control seven votes; why should I desire to cast one myself?" said a lady who, if women went to the polls, would be acknowledged as a leader. This lady is a devoted, beloved wife, a faithful, tender mother; she has six sons. She knows her influence is paramount over the minds she has carefully trained. She feels her interests are safe confided to those her affection has made happy. She trusts her country will be nobly served by those whom her example has taught to believe in goodness, therefore she is proud to vote by her proxies. This is the way American women should vote, namely, by influencing rightly the votes of men.
~"Editors' Table" Godey's Lady's Book, April, 1852.

Just to say thank you very much for the help you sent me in my search. It was really nice to have a response, the only thing is I am searching for something a little more catchy, Something that will grab the attention of 25 year old women readers. Any ideas!! Loz :?:

If Theno can't locate a specific quote then I would tend to agree that there is no such quote available.

If you need a catchy quote then I will coin one for your consideration. What is your deadline?

Thanks for the help, I think I can use that as an appropriate headline. I am going to check with my tutor on Monday to find out what she thinks. If it is not ok, she will maybe be able to suggest an alternative! Thanks again. Loz

I recommend you check out this speech. It is interesting and entertaining.

"A woman that can bring up a family of strong-brained children, and make good citizens of them, can be President without any difficulty."
~Henry Ward Beecher, "Woman's Duty to Vote" , 10 May 1866
