  1. Congratulations, Merril.
    Our current society may have come a long way in the consideration of women as a commodity to be used, discarded, and/or ignored, but there is still a ways to go. It may sound blunt, but that should be an indication of the injustice still being served.

    • Thank you, Ken. Not too blunt at all, Ken. I’ve been reading all sorts of stuff about sexual harassment as I finish my manuscript, so I totally agree. (And then you get women like Phyllis Schlafly.)🤑

  2. This is wonderful Merril–your words and work are so valuable in keeping these forgotten women alive. And unfortunately I fear things are not that different for poor women today. (K)
