    Harriet Beecher Stowe’s book inspired the nation to support the Civil War. She deserves to be honored.

  2. Michelle says:

    In full agreement with Jen, Harriet Beecher Stowe’s work was key in opening Northerners’ eyes to the horrors that were occurring in the South. (Not to say racism wasn’t also running rampant in the North, but it pales in comparison to the atrocity of slavery.)

    Harriet Beecher Stowe changed our country even though she did not have the right to vote. How many people can say that?

    Harriet Taylor Upton was a suffragette who worked to achieve women’s right to vote. I would love to start promoting the representation in our national landscape not only of women, but of “scary” feminist women in particular.

    I live in Ohio, and have printed out the ballot, one for me and one for my husband.

    I feel a need to coordinate our votes so they are not split three ways and lose effectiveness.

    These are 3 good women, and I can make an argument for each; but I will go with HBS if that is the way most are going. How many have voted?

    I’ll wait a bit and check back before mailing my ballots.

    I’m going to vote for Judith Resnik because I think a ‘modern’ woman will grab the interest of children who see her among those who are just dead history to them. An astronaut! A woman dedicated to science who lost her life reaching for the stars.
