I just added The Woman They Could Not Silence by Kate Moore to the Recommended Reading List. Moore’s book is the true story of Elizabeth Packard. Set primarily in 1860s America, it reads like a version of The Handmaid’s Tale, except is is true. It chronicles the lack of independence women of the era experienced and the asylum system.
Everyone should read this book but especially younger women and those who don’t believe the MAGA crowd is evil. This is the era many on the right thought was the last time America was great.
