Shadows In A Timeless Myth Presents The Rhyme Of Militant Women

Suffragettes and Militants

Hippolta, Chingtse, Hatshepset, Penthesilea,
Maria Teresa and Joan,
Agustina and Boadicea
And other militant girls of times we've known--
It would take a brave man and a dull one
To say to these ladies:
"Of course We adore you while you are meek, 
Timid, clinging, silent and weak,
But a woman can never use force...
And needs to watch how she speaks!"
                                 Adapted from a Suffragette Poem For Her Son

Compiled From Sources In The Public Domain.

My historical fantasy Shadows In A Timeless Myth is filled with vignettes featuring women who dared to fight. In fact, if the book has one overriding theme, it is stories of women dealing with adversity and challenges.

   Please "Like" Shadows In A Timeless Myth on Amazon and download the free sample there, or read the complimentary short story I have here.

Smiles & Good Fortune,
It is not wealth one asks for, but just enough to preserve one’s dignity, to work unhampered, to be generous, frank and independent. W. Somerset Maugham (1874-1965) Of Human Bondage, 1915
