Text

We will have what men have, Hear! Hear! It may not be much, but we will have it. (cheers.) If we cannot have it without friction, we will have it with.
If we cannot have it throughout organizations, we will have it through our combinations if necessary. (cheers.)
We refuse to be poked in the gallery any more, but insist on being placed on the floor of the house. (prolonged cheers.) That drunken loafer in the gallery says, "Down with the petticoats." I say "Up with the petticoats and down with the pants." Then things will be seen in their true light. (Howls of applause). We must get together. As long as we women are split up as we are, the men will always be on top. (cheers)
