Enlightenment 1895

"A woman is not lower in rank [than a man]. This is particularly obvious after science and enlightenment has uncovered the true and natural position of a woman, her capacities and mental prowess and her ability to [do] all that a man practices."
Salma Kalila writing in the magazine Lubnan in 1895
