Call to Women

Includes LINES, composed by unnamed female for The Liberator …. Here are some of the “lines” from this poem:

How can you eat, how can you drink,
How wear your finery and ne’er think,
Of those poor souls, in bondage held,
Whose painful labor is compelled?

Gird up your loins, be firm, be strong,
Support the right; condemn the wrong,
So shall the Lord your ways approve,
And save you by redeeming love.
