Man's Rights; or, How Would You Like It? Comprising Dreams by Annie Denton Cridge (1825 - 1875).

"Man's Rights; or, How Would You Like It? Comprising Dreams" is the first known feminist utopian novel written by a woman. The text features nine dreams experienced by a first-person female narrator. In the first seven dreams, she visits the planet Mars, finding a society where traditional sex roles and stereotypes are reversed. The narrator witnesses the oppression of the men on Mars and their struggle for equality. In the last two dreams, the narrator visits a future United States ruled by a woman president.
    1. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you would like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
    2. New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
    3. Is there a deadline? We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen.Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): http://digital.library.upenn.edu/women/cridge/rights/rights.html
    5. Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)! If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.

This is set up.

Are you looking for a DPL, or do you have one lined up already? I did put the tilde in the title, assuming you don't have one yet.

Hi Jeff--May I please claim Section 06 - Dream Number Six--?

And do you want me to read the line "The following four additional "dreams" were added when Man's Rights; or, How Would You Like It? was reprinted in Woodhull and Claflin's Weekly, New York, Sep 3-Nov 19, 1870." shown just prior to the text of Dream Number Six?

Thanks!
Kind regards,
Lucretia

Hi Lucretia, I have assigned the section to you. Thanks for claiming! You don’t need to read that line prior to the text, as we’re omitting “The End” at the end of Section 5.
