Happy March! It's also Women's History Month.
The quote is by one of my favorite historians, Laurel Thatcher Ulrich.
She won the Pulitzer Prize for History in 1991 for A Midwife’s Tale: The Life of Martha Ballard Based on Her Diary, 1785--1812. A few years ago there was also a wonderful PBS documentary based on the book.
