The subject came up, as so many of these things do, while trying to explain things to my daughter. She understands that ordinary people banding together made great history happen. But there are so many holes that don’t entirely make sense until we get into it a bit deeper, such as Women’s Suffrage. A bunch of women organized, marched, made a lot of fuss, and eventually embarrassed the establishment into giving in. Great. But then the bigger issue comes up – why are the details of this story not very well known?
The stories of history are one thing. The stories that are hard to find have stories of their own.
