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,走进大厅时,人们突然站起来。 自从我四处走走以来,我让他们坐下。 我不想他们帮我忙。

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,这些年来提供公职的大多数女性之所以这样做,更多是因为“污垢”,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.

不管肮脏是什么,清理或驱赶某些男人的工作都是女性的工作,从酒窖到参议院的所有工作都应如此。

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.

我不想成为任何家庭的天使:我想要我自己想要的其他女人,绝对平等。 在此之后,男人和女人可以轮流当天使。

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.

我欠我父亲是我当初当选国会议员,但欠我母亲是因为我到那里就把它拒之门外。
