Ella Wheeler Wilcox (1850-1919) was an American poet who was an advocate of vegetarianism and animal rights (as well as a believer in reincarnation). One of her best known poems is Protest in which she writes: “To sin by silence, when we should protest, / Makes cowards out of men” which appears on this tea towel. Words we would do well to remember when we witness injustice. She is also the author of the words "Laugh, and the world laughs with you; / Weep, and you weep alone", the beginning her 1883 poem "Solitude" which she wrote after comforting a disconsolate woman in black on a train on the way to a party.
