    Mary Wollstonecraft once wrote, “I do not wish them [women] to have power over men; but over themselves.” This quote is of importance because many women today still feel like they do not have a say in what happens to them or to their bodies.

Didn’t they, Dad… All of the electric poison that had drained out of…
