Poor Richard's Women with Nancy Rubin Stuart
Benjamin Franklin was one of America's most famous citizens. He was a printer, scientist, philosopher, diplomat, inventor, postmaster and a self-proclaimed lover of women. Nancy Rubin Stuart tells us about some of the women Franklin loved, in three countries and two continents, including his wife Deborah, Madame Brillon and Madame Helvetius, Margaret Stevenson and her daughter Polly, and Kitty Ray of Block Island, whose lives intertwined with Franklin's, and whose stories she tells in her new book, Poor Richard's Women: Deborah Read Franklin and the Other Women behind the Founding Father.
