Anne Brontë
“I am satisfied that if a book is a good one, it is so whatever the sex of the author may be. All novels are or should be written for both men and women to read, and I am at a loss to conceive how a man should permit himself to write anything that would be really disgraceful to a woman, or why a woman should be censured for writing anything that would be proper and becoming for a man.”
Anne Brontë, The Tenant of Wildfell Hall

Sahndra Fon Dufe
“Education for women is something that has plagued the world for a very long time. When I saw this problem firsthand, I knew I had to write about it.”
Sahndra Fon Dufe
