Abzug Speaking with Constituents

Abzug Speaking with Constituents

"It's not that I think that women are superior to men. It's just that we have had so little opportunity to be corrupted by power. And we want that opportunity."


1. Quote from Bella Abzug, Keynote Address at American Bar Association Commission on Women in the Profession, Margaret Brent Women Lawyers of Achievement Award, Chicago, Illinois, 6 August 1995.
