Women and Adversity: Lady Deborah Moody

Since moving to South Carolina almost two years ago I have connected with several writers….definitely goes in the + column of making this giant move!

One such writer is journalist and freelance writer Jo Ann Mathews. She has been such a great friend and resource on writing. She generously offered to let me write a guest post on her blog “Women and Adversity.” Twice a month she profiles women from all walks of life, from all different time periods who faced obstacles as they forged their place in the world.

I invite you to read my contribution about Lady Deborah Moody, an English woman who was instrumental in Long Island’s history. I chose to write about her, in part, as a nod to my home state but also because she was a female voice driving and advocating for her community in a time period where women had none especially when it came to public affairs.

I encourage you to sign up on Jo Ann’s website to receive posts right to your email - always an interesting read over that morning cup of coffee or tea!
