*We declare the present Property Parliament unfair.
*We want no Poor Law Amendment Act.

The Northern Star reported on 27th April, 1839, that the Hyde Chartist Society contained 300 men and 200 women. The newspaper quoted one of the male members as saying that the women were more militant than the men, or as he put it: "the women were the better men".
