How far we have come! This book serves to remind us, very eloquently, that things we don't even give a thought to now would be unheard of for women of earlier times. It was written only 9 years after women got the vote, and within memory of the time when women not only couldn't own property, but were property. Women were thought not worthy of education, and if they had the audacity to write, they were forced to do so in secret; hard to do as they wouldn't have had a room of their own to do it in.
