An amateur writer of the mid-seventeenth century (as well as a painter) who could also turn her hand to verse, Mary More left two surviving, unpublished works, both entirely forgotten until very recently. The now better-known of the two is a serious assertion of women's rights.
Milestones
1633 Mary Tyther, later MM, was born to parents living in Bread Street, in the City of London. Bibliographic Citation link.
Late 1660s MM wrote for her "little daughter" Elizabeth her proto-feminist treatise, "The Womans Right". Bibliographic Citation link.
1713-May 1715 MM must have died some time between these two dates: after her son made his will, and before it was proved. Bibliographic Citation link.
