Its been a while since i have done a Women's Issue Post and its not because i havent had stuff to put it...Its just been ...No comment.
Anyway, someone sent me this link ages ago and i meant to put it up...It's a quiz on What Inspiring Woman Are You? My results are below but another reason i am excited about this quiz is the fact that it appears that virtually every kind of woman (shy, outspoken, traditional, non-traditional etc) can make a change. You dont have to be radical and outspoken to move mountains. And little steps can make such a big difference in the lives of women around the world. So i urge my female readers to take this quiz and once your inspiring woman is revealed, read a little bit more about her. Who knows, you might get some ideas.
You are Mary Wollstonecraft
Mary Wollstonecraft (1759 – 1797) was a British philosopher, often hailed as the first feminist. She wrote several novels, essays, and children's books, but is best known for A Vindication of the Rights of Woman (1792) in which she argued that women were degraded through the lack of education imposed on them by the restrictions of femininity. In line with the ideals of the Enlightenment, she fought for a society based on reason and the new concept of human rights.
As well as writing, Mary Wollstonecraft worked as a teacher, founded a school and travelled all over Europe, staying in France during the revolution. After a stormy relationship with Gilbert Imlay, with whom she had her first daughter Fanny, Wollstonecraft married the philosopher William Godwin. They had a daughter together: Mary Shelley, the author of Frankenstein. Mary Wollstonecraft died of puerperal fever shortly after the birth, but left a legacy of feminism that has changed the world.
