Remember the Ladies
Remember the Ladies by Gina L. Mulligan is a remembrance of the women’s suffrage movement. Gina L. Mulligan brilliantly recaptures the moment in time when women didn’t have the same rights as men. Both men and women alike deemed those who took on jobs or tried to follow in some men’s footsteps crazy. Going against a society’s norm wasn’t looked upon kindly. Yet many women were daring enough to risk it all. Men took advantage of women’s looks and tried to blame women for enticing them when they could not control themselves.
Inside the delightful novel, Remember the Ladies women everywhere will relive the important steps women made to gain entry into the working field. That moment is to be held with honor and respect, when most view it as impossible or ludicrous, is thrilling. Readers will meet a young girl who loses both her parents in one fatal night. From there, she is in a school where women are not viewed as fit to continue their studies like men are. But that doesn’t stop the main character, Amelia, from achieving her dreams of working. She has much to learn and to accept before she can find the strength to handle herself in her newfound work. Meeting a man who happens to be a senator does her favor in working her way up in the society, in becoming a working woman among men. I enjoyed this realistic yet fictional piece by Gina L. Mulligan. Her novel will forever be one remembered by the ladies.
