Incredibly shocking to see how women were treated in the 1800s. We've come a long way, but still room for improvement. How scary how easily it was for a woman to get committed for insanity, then to endure such a hell hole.

I love reading historical stuff and this was really interesting. To see from her eyes what would have been something scary to go through is amazing.
