Please read my blogpost about Elizabeth Elstob, an 18th-century woman whose Anglo-Saxon grammar book inspired Thomas Jefferson. She fought for her education at a time when it was difficult for women to do so. She asks, "If Women may be said to have Souls, and if good Learning be one of the Soul’s greatest Improvements; we must retort the Question. Where is the Fault in Women seeking after Learning?”
