"When we too are armed and trained, we can convince men that we have hands, feet, and a heart like yours;." -- Veronica Franco
Veronica Franco (1546—1591) was an Italian poet and courtesan in 16th century Venice.

"When we too are armed and trained, we can convince men that we have hands, feet, and a heart like yours; and although we may be delicate and soft, some men who are delicate are also strong; and others, coarse and harsh, are cowards. Women have not yet realized this, for if they should decide to do so, they would be able to fight you until death; and to prove that I speak the truth, amongst so many women, I will be the first to act, setting an example for them to follow."
—Veronica Franco
