Martha Dundon

  • Mothers and wives who travel begin to claim rights of financial independence, leadership qualities, assertiveness, confidence, a sense of self, peer esteem, physical stature, strength, sexual impregnability, and creditability. When a woman is empowered with these rights, her societal role is more similarly situated and equal to men. Once she experiences this liberation, travel becomes not just a temporary self liberation, not a necessary personal tonic but an addictive drug for her social equilibrium.
