I'm so excited that Vision 2020, the tremendous national organization dedicated to working for gender equality by the year 2020, has asked me to be its guest blogger today. Since my dear Fanny Fern had a mouthful to say about gender inequality, I found it easy to liberally quote her. Read how things were for women interested in earning their livings 150 years ago, in Fern's time. Then read how things have (or haven't) changed . . .
