Well behaved women seldom made history...

How about we change that!

When Laurel Thatcher Ulrich penned her famous quote,  “Well-behaved women seldom make history,” she was talking about exactly those women - the well behaved ones who never made the history books. The 'proper' wives, the handmaidens and midwives, the cooks and seamstresses.

They aren't completely forgotten though - because there is a book for everything!
