First edition: John Stuart Mill (1806-73), philosopher and political economist, advocated for women's suffrage. "I saw no more reason why women should be held in legal subjection to other people, than why men should. I was certain that their interests required fully as much protection as those of men, and were quite as little likely to obtain it without an equal voice in making the laws by which they were to be bound." - Mill, Autobiography, p. 244.
