Attention historians: Glamour Magazine is seeking suggestions for "the greatest Mother-Daughter duos of all time" for their Mother's Day issue. Any takers?
Nobel awardees Marie and Irene Curie and literary giants Mary Wallstonecraft and Mary Shelly already top their list. But what of great queens and stateswomen? Heroines and pioneers? Inventors and moguls? Literati. Artistas. Revolutionaries. ... . and so on. They're looking for mothers-daughters famed in their own right -- who may have worked together or inspired (or even infuriated) each other.
If you've got a suggestion, please send your name and email (to be queried with similar women's history questions in the future!) to Jessica Seigel at JS@jessicaseigel.com.
