    Amazingly, forty years previous, the Bronte sisters were writing under male pseudonyms because it was not acceptable for women to be writers...of anything.

      Anna:

      You've heard of the pride of western Pennsylvania, Nellie Bly.
      I'm sure there were pretty enterprising male reporters during the 1880's....but none were more daring and influential than Nellie.

      Here's a treat for one and all, which I wouldn't have thought of if you hadn't made me think of her. A 2 hour and 41 minute audiobook story of her experiences in a New York mental institution.

                As a woman myself, I particularly like the last line of that article. I, too, would be curious to know if there were any discernible increase in conscientiousness, tenderness, and purity. Heh. I sincerely doubt it. Although, I've always deeply admired Nellie Bly. I think I read my first biography of her when I was around 12 years old, and she made a great impression on me. Such courage, dedication, and talent!
