Mary Shelley was brought up with the knowledge that her mother, Mary Wollstonecraft, considered motherhood an important role that would be jeopardized if women did not themselves have education and freedom. A controversial point of view in 1792. She wrote; ‘To be a good mother—a woman must have sense, and that independence of mind which few women possess who are taught to depend entirely on their husbands.’ (Mary Wollstonecraft, Vindication of the Rights of Woman.)

Mary didn’t know her mother, as she died giving birth to her, but her ideas, through her books, influenced Mary all her life.

In the shadow of #Halloween, we remember that #Frankenstein was a story about the tragedy of the Monster's creator, rather than the creature himself via Paste Magazine http://ow.ly/2bB3305Glg6
