Women’s History Month: Mother Theodore and sabots

Mother Theodore Guerin and her sister-companions were used to wearing wooden shoes or sabots when working outside. She writes about missing her sabots:

“Just now we are suffering from the want of sabots. It seems to me that if I only had the tools I could make a pair for each one of us. We shall not be able to go outside without sinking deep in the mud, except when it freezes.”
