—Womans Loyal League (founded May 1861)

“The essence of the modern state is that the universal be bound up with the complete freedom of its particular members and with private well-being, that thus the interests of family and civil society must concentrate themselves on the state....

—Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (17701831)
