Happy International Women’s Day! Did you know “Maria Longworth Storer was a prolific author, political pundit, an energetic philanthropist, a cherished wife and mother. She inspired with the power of the power of her money and her pen.” From the Prologue p. 8 ‘We women have…an influence and a sphere of action in the moral and spiritual world which is most important.” Maria Longworth Storer age 17. https://youtu.be/o0r7jCXoUGE

“Maria Longworth Storer wanted to help [people]…without distinction of race, color, wealth or rank. Maria started the first pediatric hospital in Cincinnati, the Home for Sick Children, which delivered free hospitalization services for indigent children. They were kept until they were cured. The facility in many ways was the forerunner of today’s Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center.” P. 49

“Maria Longworth Storer pushed the boundaries of what women did in the public sphere when she supported her husband’s political and diplomatic careers. In national and international affairs, she aggressively corresponded with influential people to present her point of view. Excerpt from the epilogue, Equal footing with intelligent men p. 244

“By virtue of her intellectual and social brilliance, Maria attracted many people and their families, always creating an interesting social space around her, assembling an entourage of male political and religious mentors, and female aristocrats or elites. Her circle aided her forays into the political world. Her communication strategy of sending multiple letters to powerful people would be used again and again.” p. 107, 12
