If I think to myself that a woman shall make an appearance at an adjudication, then I have to say: When that would be a woman who is close to me, and if I wanted to imagine my mother would be still alive and has to sit in front of a murder in a court and decide the verdict - never, never!
Loud applause ensues
I also don't want an uniformed female police to walk around, and run after scamps or criminals
These are all things we actually don't want.
Then they come naturally and say promptly: "Excuse me, but you don't let them into the parliaments as well."
Certainly, but only because I am also satisfied that the parliament doesn't raise the value of the woman, but it would only degrade her.
I removed the men from the parliamentary severice as well.
Another lound applause ensues
In former times…
In former times I was often told: "Don't you think that if you get the woman in the Reichstag that the woman would refine the manners of the Reichstag then and thereby…?"
I even have no interest to refine the Reichstag or to refine its manners at all, because whether honoured, knighted or ennobled, is ranting or not, this is entirely the same.
Above all, I am also convinced that, for example, the parliament at the time was nothing more than a sack of rotten apples.
Laughter and applause ensues
Now, you will say to me: "That's why you should put some sound ones into it, now!"
No, I prefer to leave the sound ones out, lest they become rotten, too.
Its better to let something die, which is destined to die.
When I look around the world today, the picture from the papers that comes to mind is: A woman's regiment in the Soviet Union in the sharpshooting! Or: A woman's battalion of grenadiers in Spain!
Or… All I can say to the representatives of this time of female equality:
I would not be a man, if I wanted to tolerate such a thing.
I experienced the war.
I know how hard it is.
I know how many men's nerves have been shattered by this war.
I have often seen them return by the dozens, doddering, completely ruined and broken!
The idea that a girl or a woman has to take it upon herself… I could have no respect for the German men then!
Either they take responsibility for this or they shall resign!
Loud applause ensues
As long as we have a healthy male gender - and we National Socialists will ensure it - no female grenadiers and sharpshooters will be trained in Germany.
That's no equality, but in reality inferior rights for women, because its harder for women than for men.
For her it is much more terrible than for man.
I could say just as well that I am arming children in future and sending them to war.
We won't do it.
But apart from that, before oure very eyes there is a vast expanse of job opportunities and work area for the woman, because for us the woman has been the most faithful work and life companion of the man at all times.
They often said: "You want to remove women from all professions!"
On the whole, I will give her only the chance of being able to marry and to assist her to found an own family and to have children, because she would then - and this is my conviction now - benefit our people the most, of course.
For that's clear
Lound applause ensues
And you need to understand it from me: If I have a female lawyer in front of me these days and it doesn't matter how much she has achieved, and next to her is a mother of fix, six, seven children, and they are in great health and well-educated by her, then I want to say: From the eternal point of view of the eternal value of our people, the woman - who is able to have children and has children and raised them and thereby gave our people the further ability to live in the future - has achieved more.
She has done more.
She assists us to avoid the death of our people.
