Ellen Key (1849-1926) – Swedish Writer

“The mother is the most precious possession of the nation, so precious that society advances its highest well-being when it protects the functions of the mother.”

Although, as a socialist, Miss Key erroneously believed that the government was better suited to care for mothers and children then were husbands. But, despite this misconception, she did devote her life, and her writings, to the advocacy of children. Miss Key believed that the first consideration, under all circumstances, should be, “What’s best for the children?” ¬†American mothers could learn much from her in this regard. kqd
