The Bread of Dependence
Happy 190th Birthday to Susan B. Anthony, the mother of the women's
suffrage movement. The event was marked by the opening of a museum in
her honor, complete with controversy about her possibly anti-abortion stance - controversy that by all accounts she would have savored.
"There is not the woman born who desires to eat the bread of
dependence, no matter whether it be from the hand of father, husband,
or brother; for any one who does so eat her bread places herself in the
power of the person from whom she takes it."
