Founding Mothers

Today I posted a Tweet suggesting we honor the Founding Mothers on the US Independence Day. Institutional history emphasizes the Founding Fathers who were rich white guys, a third of whom were slave owners and all of whom signed off on a constitutional bias against voting citizenship for women.

It’s another amazing example of how institutionalized history of any country is never an accurate reflection of reality. In this case, we cannot understand these men outside the context of their women.
