Yesterday was International Women’s Day. Last year I did a post on extraordinary living women, so this year I’ll make links to articles on important historic women. This post is written after a long work day, so it there might be some spelling mistakes. If so, I apologize.
At Bitch Media, a feminist blog, they have a series called “Adeventures in Feministory”. Below you’ll find the links to the articles!
Here’s the most recent post in the series on Ada Lovelace, the first computer programmer.
Here’s a article on Annie Oakley.
For those interested in cultural history:
An essay on the writer Gloria Anzaldúa.
For fans of blues, here’s an article on Gladys Bentley.
For people interested in the Dancing arts, Rachel Tobach did a great essay on Isadora Duncan.
Essay on Charlotte Perkins Gilman.
And finally an article on Phoolan Devi, “The Bandit Queen Of India”.
Happy (late) international women’s day, sisters!
