Annie Besant (1847-1933) led the fight for the rights of women and laborers in her native England; later she worked with Mahatma Gandhi and spearheaded India's struggle for freedom. Theosophist Joy Mills describes her as 'a feminist before the movement for women's rights was fully launched; she stood for freedom when half the world was held in the bonds of colonialism.' A student of India's spiritual traditions, Annie Besant was famed as an orator, author, and international President of the Theosophical Society.

From Chapter 5 - 'One World Religion' (p. 76):

" When religious hatreds have passed, when religious controversies have disappeared, when men have learned supreme truth so often preached, so little practised: 'Let him that loveth God love his brother also': when out of the World Religion has grown the World Peace; when out of the World Faith has grown the World Service; then religion shall shall be what it ought to be, the helper of the downtrodden, the protector of the weak, the teacher of the ignorant, the raiser of the fallen; then religion will not only tie men to God but man to man, and it will be realized that knowledge of God is best expressed in service to Man. "
