“I do not wish women to have power over men; but over themselves.” -- Mary Wollstonecraft
British writer and philosopher Mary Wollstonecraft, one of the first pioneers for women's rights, is considered one of the founding feminist philosophers. In her groundbreaking 1792 work, "A Vindication of the Rights of Woman," she argued that women should have access to education and that women are not naturally inferior to men but only appear to be because they lack the same education and opportunities afforded to men. As she famously asserted, "Strengthen the female mind by enlarging it, and there will be an end to blind obedience."
For an excellent book for adult readers about Mary Wollstonecraft and her daughter, "Frankenstein" author Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley, we highly recommend "Romantic Outlaw," at https://amzn.to/2vTdR4q

For two new picture books about her daughter's creation of Frankenstein for ages 5 to 9, we recommend "Mary Who Wrote Frankenstein" (https://amightygirl.com/mary-who-wrote-frankenstei…;) and "She Made a Monster" (https://www.amightygirl.com/she-made-a-monster)

If that's the case why don't Zonta International speak out about the archaic abortion laws in Alabama and the laws in Ohio which has just said an eleven year old girl who was raped must carry her child to term. Yes, there are people who don't believe in abortion but everyone must have the right to make their own decision over their own bodies and children who have been raped must have the right to terminate if that is what is wanted. Zonta International has 3 clubs in Alabama and fourteen clubs in Ohio. In order to be an advocate for women, contains must advocate to governments who enact such disgusting laws against women and children, It's time for Zonta International to put it's money where it's mouth is.
