And here we are 150 years later.... we still have a LONG way to go! Interesting bios of two sisters and their very weird family. The sisters were so far ahead of their time in terms of the rights of women, it's almost unbelievable. And.... we still have a long way to go. Much of what they fought for and pointed out to society, still goes on today. *sigh* I think I need a glass of wine.
