When I first came to the House of Commons and walked out into the lobby, men sprang to their feet. I asked them to sit down since I'd come to walk around. I didn't want them doing me favours.

当我第一次来到下议院,走出大厅时,人们都站了起来。既然我是来走走的,我就叫他们坐下。我不想他们帮我的忙。

Most of the women who have offered themselves for public office over the years have done so, I believe, more because of the 'dirt' than in spite of it.

我相信,这些年来,大多数愿意担任公职的女性之所以这样做,更多的是因为“肮脏”,而不是尽管如此。

Whatever is dirty, it is women's job to clean up, or drive some man to clean up, and that goes for everything from cellar to senate.

不管是脏的,都是妇女的工作,要清理干净,或者开车送男人去打扫,从地窖到参议院,一切都是这样。

I do not want to be the angel of any home: I want for myself what I want for other women, absolute equality. After that is secured, then men and women can take turns being angels.

我不想成为任何家的天使:我想为自己想要的是我想要的其他女人,绝对平等。在这之后,男人和女人可以轮流成为天使。

I owed it to my father that I was elected to Parliament in the first place, but I owed it to my mother that I stuck it out once I got there.

我一开始就被选为议会议员,这要归功于我父亲,但我一到那里就坚持了下来,这要归功于我母亲。
