Women Are People!

"The basis of our political systems is the right of the people to make and to alter their constitutions of government."—George Washington: Farewell Address.

"The people's government, made for the people, made by the people, and answerable to the people."—Daniel Webster: Second Speech on Foot's Amendment.

"When we say: 'We, the people, do ordain and establish, etc.,' it is not an unmeaning flourish.  The expression declares in a practical manner the principles of this Constitution.  It is ordained and established by the people themselves."—Judge Wilson, in the Pennsylvania convention to consider the Constitution of the United States.
