A RIDDLE

How old do you think this quote is?

"The contemptuous opinion entertained of woman in the past has found expression, not alone in literature, but also in unjust laws and customs. In marriage she has been a serf; as a mother she has been robbed of her children; in public instruction she has been ignored; in labor she has been a menial, and then inadequately compensated; civilly she has been a minor, and politically she has had no existence. She has been the equal of man only when punishment and the payment of taxes were in question."
