adjective

Of or relating to money.

No genuine equality, no real freedom, no true manhood or womanhood can exist on any foundation save that of pecuniary independence. As a right over a man’s subsistence is a power over his moral being, so a right over a woman’s subsistence enslaves her will, degrades her pride and vitiates her whole moral nature.

—Susan B. Anthony Quoted in The Life of Susan B. Anthony by Ida Husted Harper (1897)
