Western North Carolina Woman magazine:  celebrating the strength, wisdom, and grace of women


"A sphere is made up of not one, but an infinite number of circles; women have diverse gifts, and to say that
women's sphere is the family circle is a mathematical absurdity."

Maria Mitchell 1818-1889
First Woman Astronomer in the United States and the First Woman
member of the American Academy of Arts and Science, Hall of Fame.
