By birth, education, native endowment, and training born of experience, Mrs. Eddy was fitted to present to the world the message of Christian Science. The fitness of woman to uphold the standard of Truth is evidenced in the Virgin-mother, who gave birth to the Messiah, and the two Marys who were loyal to their Master in the tragedy at Calvary. It was Queen Elizabeth who established the Protestant faith in Great Britain, and Queen Victoria who, by her practical religious life, won the love and esteem of the entire world.

"Let it not be heard in Boston," wrote Mrs. Eddy in "No and Yes" (p. 45), "that woman, 'last at the cross and first at the sepulchre,' has no rights which man is bound to respect. In natural law and in religion the right of woman to fill the highest measure of enlightened understanding and the highest places in government, is inalienable, and these rights are ably vindicated by the noblest of both sexes. This is woman's hour, with all its sweet amenities and its moral and religious reforms."
