"Woman's hour"

From the September 1998 issue of The Christian Science Journal

The first women's rights convention opened July 19, 1848, in Seneca Falls, New York. To mark this important anniversary, the Christian Science magazines and The Christian Science Monitor are running a number of articles on the status of women, including important spiritual issues that affect the progress of both women and men. ...

The Christian Science publications owe their existence to a women's rights pioneer. At a time when women in the United States lacked property and voting rights, Mary Baker Eddy started a church and launched a worldwide publishing enterprise.

She wrote on this subject: "In natural law and in religion the right of woman to fill the highest measure of enlightened understanding and the highest places in government, is inalienable .... This is woman's hour, with all its sweet amenities and its moral and religious reforms" (No and Yes, p. 45).
