How To Be Ignored By History

Tell The Truth
Mary Shelley's mother was Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin. This name is fairly unknown too in modern times outside small circles of the enlightened. Mary Wollstonecraft was the first feminist. And whether you agree with feminism or not it is hard not to agree with Mary's idea. In fact probably the only reason her name is not set in gold and adorned in every corner of the world is that William Godwin wrote a posthumous biography of her that was considered way too honest, and it is, even by today's standards.
