“One life is all we have and we live it as we believe in living it. But to sacrifice what you are and to live without belief, that is a fate more terrible than dying.” – Joan of Arc

One such woman of influence, Mary Wollstonecraft (1759-1997) wrote the most significant book in the early feminist movement. Her tract “A Vindication of the Rights of Women” laid down a clear moral and practical basis for extending human and political rights to women. – A true pioneer in the struggle for female suffrage.
We celebrate Mary as we are celebrating women of influence – today and in history – as we start the clock on the new regional women’s chamber.
