I recently spent a weekend touring women’s history sites in upstate New York. It was inspiring and moving and... damn, their flair was on point — both for and against women getting the right to vote (a racially charged movement in itself).

In May of 1969, as the women’s movement was gaining momentum and influence in the Boston area and elsewhere around the country, 12 women ranging in age from 23 to 39 met during a women’s liberation conference at Emmanuel College. In a workshop on “Women and Their Bodies,” they shared information and personal stories and discussed their experiences with doctors. This would be the beginning of “Our Bodies Ourselves”
Due to lack of funding and a changing world they have stopped publishing updated information 😢

Mary Shelley
born August 30, 1797
in 1818 she wrote her most famous novel, Frankenstein.

The story goes that on a dark and rainy day some poets were stuck in a house on Lake Geneva with nothing to do. Lord Byron (one of these bored poets) suggested that they each write a ghost story...and so came to live #Frankenstein

Judith Resnik... #Repost @womenshistory with @get_repost
・・・
On August 30, 1984, Judith A. Resnik became the second American woman in space aboard the space shuttle Discovery. The daughter of first-generation Jewish Russian immigrants, Resnik was an excellent pianist and attended Hebrew school as a girl, and graduated from Carnegie Tech (now Carnegie Mellon University) with a degree in electrical engineering. She held jobs in various engineering industries while pursuing her Master’s degree in engineering and later her doctorate. In 1977, she began training for NASA’s space program and was accepted into it the next year—she went on to become the second woman to go to space. As a member of the crew of the Discovery, one of Resnik’s responsibilities was to operate the mechanical arm outside the shuttle to move objects in space. In 1986, Resnik and her six crew members tragically lost their lives in the Challenger explosion. #JAHM

Survivor, Astrud Gilberto. (Bossa Bova, Latin jazz, and Brazilian jazz singer)
As a true Taurean, Astrud Gilberto delivers an honest experience to her listeners. Patches of saddened truths in her lyrical form bestow patient wisdom from her tone + delivery. In her teens Astrud befriended a group of musicians; her best friend Nara Leao introduced her to Joao Gilberto, whom she married a couple month’s after meeting. Joao and Astud would sing duets, or her would accompany her on guitar. In 1963 Astrud came to the US with Joao, as he had a commitment to record on the Getz Gilberto album. Stan Getz asked Astrud to sing on the record as well.
There is a common misconception that Astrud Gilberto was discovered by Stan + Creed Taylor.
In the 60’s the public at large thrived on stories about movie stars being discovered at drug stores, and the idea of a “housewife” suddenly being discovered as a well known singer, was a good selling + promotional campaign for Verve Records.
A year after recording, Joao had been invited by Stan to perform as a “special guest” of his quart at the “Cape Au Go Go.” On the days approaching the engagement, Joao’s had an injury that prevented him from playing the guitar, so Stan invited Astrud to appear instead. This was her first appearance on stage, and she was paid “slave salary” at the time. She was also in the process of separating from Joao Gilberto, and supporting their son on her own. Several individuals and companies took advantage of Astrud. However, she doesn’t believe in badmouthing anyone when reporting her truth. She tries to release her frustrations to the Cosmic Forces, and the burden becomes lighter.

World War II prompted many young couples to say “I do” before military service separated them. Weddings were casual and quickly planned, as brides tried to coordinate with their sweetheart’s military leave. Women learned to accommodate when the government requisitioned all silk supplies for parachutes. More traditional wedding dresses in the 1940s were white. The minimalist style was popular and consisted of a rayon/silk bias-cut dress and matching jacket with padded shoulders and covered buttons on the front. The sleeves began at the shoulders with a slight puff and became narrower toward the wrist. Designers showcased the neckline—heart-shaped, dramatic V, or beaded round. Skirts of sheer netting with flower appliqués could be added. Veils usually ended at the fingertips. For a courthouse wedding, a nice afternoon dress complete with gloves and a hat was suitable. Many new brides followed military husbands to posts around the country. Learn more about the history of the American wedding at the Women's Museum of California in Liberty Station until July 1st.

We really enjoyed helping the #hlfsupported @rebellioussoundsarchive project to spotlight an account of women’s activism in the South West. We hold the former Devon Constabulary and Exeter City Police archive files on Violet Van Der Elst, an anti capital punishment campaigner in the 1930s who held a large demonstration outside Exeter Prison in 1936. We’ll be sharing more on Violet soon - watch this space! Repost @rebellioussoundsarchive with @get_repost

As part of our goal to forefront stories of women’s activism from/in the South West, we are researching pioneering activists in the region through our #knowhername spotlights. We started in Exeter with Violet Van Der Elst, human rights campaigner and anti capital punishment activist in the early twentieth century. Violet once drove her Rolls Royce up to the gates of Exeter Prison to protest the execution of Charlotte Bryant. She is quoted in the records of Exeter City Police as stating she had plans “to hold a big demonstration”. Thanks to the South West Police Heritage Trust @policeheritage for providing images.

For real female power, put down your beauty magazines and read women’s history books!

Beauty, as defined by our society, is attainable through the right makeup, clothing or plastic surgery. While personal presentation is important, it’s not the avenue to true self-love or power. Knowing the depth of your soul and the truth of our cultural past IS.
Your personal investigation into ancient history will help you discover goddess-focused worship and women’s equal roles in society. You’ll learn that for tens of thousands of years, every society around the globe considered the Higher Power to be Female. You’ll be amazed to know that many women-centered cultures and egalitarian cultures (in which women and men were equal), were peaceful with little evidence of war. You’ll be shocked by the events that led to the downfall of Goddess and the overtaking of male-dominance.
This kind of mind and soul-expanding information will spark feelings of power and self-esteem that no makeup or designer fashion can provide.

Reading about history illuminates a dark corner of your soul that was shut down by centuries of conditioning. The events experienced by our ancient ancestors live in our DNA, and once light is shone upon it, you’ll begin to see – and feel – what womanhood is really all about. You’ll appreciate feminine qualities and principles more than ever.
We are blessed to live at a time when this empowering information is at our fingertips. Counter what Madison Avenue tells you is beautiful with TRUE beauty that comes from knowledge.
Click here to find a few classics of women’s history and goddess history. For the price of three magazines that you’ll read once and throw away, you can purchase a book that will positively affect you for a lifetime.

Booking trips for the summer and thinking of these two world travelers, who I’ve loved researching: barrier-breaking journalists Nellie Bly and Elizabeth Bisland. They raced around the world in 1889, beating the fictional record of the character Phileas Fogg from a best-selling book popular at the time, Jules Verne’s “Around the World in 80 Days.” Nellie crossed the Atlantic and made her way into Europe in about 13 days; we’ll do that journey in about 13 hours. Hooray for adventuring! #summervacation #traveling #womenshistory #remarkablewomen #nelliebly #elizabethbisland #aroundtheworld #history #research #kidlit

Great post via @bbc100women on
Gladys West, a #womaninstem instrumental in helping to develop GPS 👩🏽💻:
.
When Mrs West started her career at the Naval Surface Warfare Center in Virginia in 1956, just one other black woman and two black men worked alongside her. "I carried that load round, thinking that I had to be the best that I could be," she says.
.
At college, Mrs West took maths, a subject mostly studied by men, which led to her working at the naval base in Dahlgreen. She would collect and process data from satellites, using it to help determine their exact location. It was this information that would go on to help develop GPS.
.
In 2017, Capt Godfrey Weekes, then-commanding officer at Dahlgren, said Mrs West played an "integral role" in the development of GPS. "I think I did help," she says, of her becoming a role model for other women. "Before you sort of whispered and looked at each other, or something, but now the world is opening up a little bit and making it easier for women. But they still gotta fight." 🙌🏾

“The world has used me so unkindly, I fear it has made me suspicious of everyone.” - Mary Anning
. . .
Mary Anning (21 May 1799 – 9 March 1847) was an English fossil collector, dealer, and palaeontologist who was born #onthisday in 1799. She became known around the world for the important finds she made in Jurassic marine fossil beds in the cliffs along the English Channel at Lyme Regis in Dorset. Anning’s findings contributed significantly to changes in scientific thinking about prehistoric life and the history of the Earth.
. . .
Mary Anning was the inspiration for the tongue twister ‘She Sells Sea Shells’, which was originally a song, written by Terry Sullivan and Harry Gifford in 1908: “She sells sea-shells on the sea-shore.
The shells she sells are sea-shells, I'm sure.
For if she sells sea-shells on the sea-shore
Then I'm sure she sells sea-shore shells.”
Mary Anning came from a poor family, and she had to sell her fossils to make a living, hence the song. This never made her rich, but she persevered, despite the dangers of fossil hunting. Landslides exposed new fossils that had to be collected before they were lost to the sea. Anning nearly lost her life in 1833 during a landslide that sadly killed her dog, Tray. Although she was well known in geological circles across the globe, she was not eligible to join the Geological Society of London, as they didn’t admit women until 1904, and so she didn’t always receive full credit for her scientific contributions. Mary Anning’s finds included the first ichthyosaur skeleton correctly identified; the first two plesiosaur skeletons found, and the first pterosaur skeleton located outside Germany. Many people believed extinction was impossible, as God created everything perfectly, but Mary’s discoveries of the remains of strange creatures never seen alive was convincing evidence that they’d died out.

Attention to detail as the sculpture of Aethelflaed is installed.
.
This marks the start of a festival of events in Tamworth to remember the 1100th anniversary of the death of Aethelflaed at Tamworth in 918.
.
The Tamworth and District Civic Society is holding a National Service of Commemoration in Tamworth Parish Church on the actual day of Aethelflaed's death on 12th June. This will be a celebration of the life of this remarkable historic figure, and a notable landmark event in the history of the town, attended by Civic Society members, and a host of eminent local, national, and international figures with significant connections to this fascinating historical epoch. We are happy that HRH Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex, was pleased to accept the invitation to be guest of honour at this special Tamworth occasion. Hope the sun is shining on the day.

When my niece was five years old, someone commented she looked like a princess. My niece looked at the person who had said it with clear dismay and answered: “Why can’t I be a Queen?! I want to be a queen, not a princess.” Why settle for less when you are so much more. No need to say I was about to die of pride when she gave this response 🤗🌟 Photo: @unknown

#womenshistory Reposted from @cnn article by Hollie Silverman with contributions by Jessica Ravitz : Her cells are responsible for the polio vaccine, gene mapping and in vitro fertilization to name a few. But for a long time most of the public didn't know her contribution to modern medicine. Neither did she because her cells were harvested without her consent.

This week, the Smithsonian unveiled a portrait of Henrietta Lacks, the black tobacco farmer who ended up changing the world. Her cells have allowed for advances in cancer treatment, AIDS research, cloning, stem-cell studies and so much more. They traveled to the moon to test the effects of zero gravity, and scientists have sold and purchased them by the billions.

Thank you for the training (and the very much welcomed surprise cakes) @thepankhurst. Really excited to be an ambassador for the ‘Some Women Centenary City’ project (creating an archive to capture this year’s #pankhurst100 celebrations with the aim to remind us all we have the ‘power to change the social and political context’ of our time) and to start documenting the amazing women and their stories💜💚💙
