Banned Books Written by Women

There was once a time when women authors had to write and publish their written works using a pen name that masked their gender. Now that female writers can publish books and not hide the fact that they are women, some have had to get over the hurdle of having their books banned.

Did you know that the renowned American author and poet, Dr. Maya Angelou (1928 – 2014) was once a banned writer?

Did you know “Frankenstein” by Mary Shelley (1797 – 1851) was once a banned book?

The thing is that books are never really banned. As soon as a list of banned books is published, people get curious and go hunting for a copy! They’ve got to know what the content was that it had to be banned. Kind of defeats the purpose of banning the book!  Don’t you think? (O.o)
