During the Suffragette revolt of 1913 I[urged] that what was needed was not the vote, but a constitutional amendment enactingthat all representative bodies shall consist of women and men in equal numbers, whether elected or nominated or coopted or registered or picked up in the street like a coroner's jury. In the case of elected bodies the only way of effecting this is by the Coupled Vote. The representative unit must not be a man or a woman but a man and a woman.

George Bernard Shaw

This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one.

George Bernard Shaw
An election is a moral horror, as bad as a battle except for the blood; a mud bath for every soul concerned in it.
