Title: Shall woman's voice be hushed?
Rating: G
Characters: OCs
Disclaimer: Not mine (except the mistakes), no harm meant.
Summary: Three women who had a hand in exposing the Stargate Program
A/N: For the [livejournal.com profile] stargate_ocs "All You Women Independent" challenge
A/N2: The title, I'll freely admit, I only got after a certain amount of googling, and while it fits the stories in rather uneven ways, it does fit the challenge and the month, as it comes from this speech by the abolitionist and women's rights campaigner Lucy Stone:

"...with anointed lips and a consecration which put even life itself at stake, these peerless women pursued the even tenor of their way, saying to their opponents only: "Woe is me, if I preach not this gospel of freedom for the slave." Over all came the melody of Whittier's 'When woman's heart is breaking / Shall woman's voice be hushed?'

"I think, with never-ending gratitude, that the young women of today do not and can never know at what price their right to free speech and to speak at all in public has been earned."
