“Then let us have our Libertie againe,
And challendge to your selves no Sov’raigntie;
You came not in the world without our paine,
Make that a barre against your crueltie;
Your fault beeing greater, why should you disdaine
Our beeing your equals, free from tyranny?
If one weake woman simply did offend,
This sinne of yours, hath no excuse, nor end.” Aemilia Lanyer, “Eve’s Apology” in “Salve Deus Rex Judaeorum” (via fuckyeahrenaissancewomen)
