The purpose of a woman's life is just the same as the purpose of man's life—that she may make the best possible contribution to the generation in which she is living.

—Louise McKinney


Since many women will either from choice or from force of circumstances continue to earn a living outside the home, are we not duty-bound to stand for the principle of equal pay for equal work?

—Louise McKinney, 1919


Politics has much that is objectionable, but I see no good reason why it should not be conducted as a clean game. It can be cleaned up, but it never will be till the average citizen has a different attitude towards citizenship and public service, and women should contribute very much to this change. Not 'What can I get out of it?' but 'What can I put into it?' must be the thought of the citizen.

—Louise McKinney
