    Mother of Mary Shelley
    Her best friend was named Fanny Blood.
    She suffered from depression.
    She tried to kill herself after she learned of her husband's infidelity.
    Although she was friends with some of the leading intellectuals and political leaders of her day, because she was a woman, few treated her like an equal.
    She grew up poor, the daughter of a handkerchief maker and a farmer.
    'Mary, a Fiction' was a children's story.
    She translated many works into English.
    Her daughter, Mary Shelley, wrote 'Frankenstein.'
    She thought of marriage as 'legal prostitution.'
    'Vindication of the Rights of Women' was one of the earliest books to examine the inequalities that women suffer.
    She is a hero to most feminists.
    She died of 'child bed fever.'
