Brief Biography of Mamah Borthwick Cheney

Mamah Borthwick Cheney, wife of Edwin H. Cheney, was strong-spirited, beautiful and as independent as Wright. Unlike Catherine, his first wife, she could stand up to his intellectual free-thinking. In fact she was already translating feminist books on free love, from German and Swedish, and promoting the new style of motherhood, on how members of a family shouldn't treat each other as so much personal property.
