Equality for All: Women of Courage

ST. GEORGE, Utah - March 22, 2022 - PRLog -- In the 1840s, women felt the need to speak out and be heard. They desired equality. They wanted to vote and get a higher education. When brave women gave speeches on the subject, it was frowned upon. A pastoral letter from a minister in Massachusetts said a woman who speaks publicly is "unwomanly and unchristian." The pastor also mentioned that it would "threaten the female character with widespread and permanent injury." Was this how the men really felt back then? It was solely a man's place to speak publicly. Why were women being held back? That was exactly how Laura McBride felt. In my new historical romance, A Mississippi Sunset, Laura is a liberated and courageous young lady who is convinced that she can make a difference in the small town of Willow Valley. Standing on a tub in Town Square, she encourages all women to fight for their rights and stand up for their beliefs. Equality was her message.

"This is the third book in the Women of Courage series. It is a clean, sweet, historical romance and tells the story of Laura, who is a feminist before her time. The author paints a fabulous picture of the era, and her characters are vivid and realistic. The main theme is the topic of women's rights and it is intriguing, interesting, and thought-provoking." –Regina Andrews, Author and Reviewer

When voting was talked about in the 1800s, most men didn't like the idea of women participating. They said women didn't have the mental capacity to understand politics, so there was no need to have them vote. It was up to the men to decide what was best. But that wasn't how Deputy William Davies felt. When he met Laura McBride, he was intrigued with her independent nature. He admired her spunk and what she represented.

After reading A Mississippi Sunset, Author Gail Pallotta wrote: "Mrs. Clarke based this interesting historical book on one of her ancestors. Taking the reader back in time, the book shows how many supported rights for women and wanted to rid the country of slavery while others wanted to leave things as they were. It also illustrates how one brave woman, such as Laura, can change the minds of so many others."

Bringing a bit of history to life, you will learn why many fought for equality and what they had to put up with to let it be known. Women were an important part of history during this time period and made a difference.
