"We claim it as a WORLD-MONUMENT, of which all the World’s Women should be proud; of your dead by their brave simplicity have spoken to Universal Womanhood, and henceforth they are “woven into the stuff” of every woman’s life."

Author: Emily Hobhouse
Context: Extract from the original speech by Emily Hobhouse on 16 December 1913 at the unveiling of the National Women’s Memorial
