Thank you for writing this. Tomorrow I am giving a talk at the local AAUW author's luncheon, and the irony is that my mother's book, Louisa Catherine, The Other Mrs. Adams is on the 2017 AAUW reading list. It breaks my heart that Louisa called herself a nobody. I am going to talk about my mother and her love of Louisa and about women and all they lose by being "good". I may cry through the entire talk. Here's to women claiming the power they deserve. May both my mother and Louisa rest in peace.

You hit the nail on the head, Deborah! In my next post about Louisa, I'll talk about what she did about it.

Sounds like Louisa was depressed. Despite her accomplishments no one sought her opinion. No wonder she felt like a nobody.
