Another Australian suffragist, reporting a meeting held in Sydney. Again, I can't date this quote, but it must have been 1902 or before: women in NSW got the vote in 1902. It made me wonder whether Rose Scott had read Sojourner Truth's now famous speech at the Seneca Falls Convention in 1852.
A speaker dwelt for some time, amid much laughter, on the enormous strain the effort to record a vote would place upon the delicate nervous system of a woman... [he did not] speak about the delicate nervous system of the woman who often worked at cooking and washing and all sorts of labourious work, for fourteen hours a day.
Rose Scott, quoted in Audrey Oldfield, Australian Women and the Vote, Cambridge, 1994
