We are victims of evil customs. It is a crime against humanity that our women are shut up within the four walls of the houses as prisoners. There is no sanction anywhere for the deplorable condition in which our women have to live.

Humanity I love you because when you're hard up you pawn your intelligence to buy a drink.
e. e. cummings
