These powerful leaders influenced women to become increasingly independent through the decades.

If the mother in law was not respected the husband would teach the wife a lesson for not respecting his mother.

“A mother's love for her child is like nothing else in the world. It knows no law, no pity. It dares all things and crushes down remorselessly all that stands in its path.” Agatha Christie is accurate in her description of a mother’s love, a fascinating bond that binds a mother to her child. This bond creates a great sense of responsibility, which contributes to the mother’s sacrifices done is order to take care of her child’s life.
