HAPPY NEW YEAR 2019! Did you make any resolutions? It’s not really my cup of tea, but I decided that I’m going to read all the books that I have been gifted, or bought second hand during my postgrad. I love to read, and I have not read for pleasure for a very long time. Add to these books #delusionsofgender by #cordeliafine & #damnedwhoresandgodspolice by #annesummers, which are at my mum’s house & #boyswillbeboys by @clementine_ford. #greatdames #happynewyear #2019 #feministreads #feministbooks #fantasy #scifi #historicalfiction #booklist #postgrad #yayreading #ifinallygettoread #asd #autism #catherinethegreat #caitlinmoran #ursulaleguin #dworkin #andreadworkin #sylviaplath @thelindywest #kenfollett #terrypratchett @khosseini #philipreeve

Alice Ball
Alice died tragically after an accident whilst teaching in chemistry lab at the age of 24. In a move that will shock no-one who has been paying attention, college professor Arthur L Dean stole her work and gave himself the credit for it. Eight years later, the US Public Health Officer to Hawaii, Dr Harry Hollman published an article describing the treatment as the ‘Ball Method’, but it wasn’t until around 50 years later that the information became public knowledge. 90 years after her death, the University of Hawaii finally honoured her legacy and ‘Alice Ball day’ is now celebrated on February 29 (every 4 years) in Hawaii.

2/3. Alice Ball became both the first African American and first female chemistry professor at the University of Hawaii.
Due to her Masters thesis, she was contacted by Dr Harry Hollman to become an assistant in his research into leprosy. At the time leprosy was basically a death sentence. Alice studied one of the treatments, chaulmoogra oil, which was very dangerous and often didn’t work. She created a technique that made the oil injectable and easily absorbed by the body. #greatdames #aliceball #hawaii #universityofhawaii #womeninstem #womenofcolorinstem #africanamericanhistory #africanamericanwomeninhistory #hansensdisease #leprosy #chemist #chemistry #womeninchemistry

Order going out today. Store link in bio "...like a lady..." For too long the phrase has been used to hold women back. No more! Using vintage circus and carnival photographs of bitchin' babes doing their thing, these button badges mock the asinine assumption that being a 'lady' will hold us back. #greatdames #buttonbadge #likealady #actlikealady #sitlikealady #vintage #carnival #circus #blackandwhite #snake #pin #pinstagram #button #badge #etsy #etsyseller #linkinbio #etsyhandmade #etsyshop #stockingstuffer #bitchinbabes #craft #feministcrafts #feminist #feministart #feministfriday #shopsmall #shophandmade

Order going out today.
“Throw Like a Girl" knife throwing button badge. "...like a girl..."
It's time to reclaim the insult. Using vintage circus and carnival photographs of bitchin' babes doing their thing, these button badges mock the asinine assumption that doing anything 'like a girl' is bad thing.

Alice Ball (1892-1916) died tragically young in a laboratory teaching accident at the age of 24... but not before creating something that would change the world.

The year before her death, Alice Ball became the very first African American and very first woman to graduate with an MS degree in chemistry from the University of Hawaii. #greatdames #aliceball #hawaii #universityofhawaii #womeninstem #womenofcolorinstem #africanamericanhistory #africanamericanwomeninhistory #hansensdisease #leprosy #chemist #chemistry #womeninchemistry

Trolled by my own breasts. This awesome tee from @bloodynorapam is meant to say ‘eliminate girl hate’, but as usual, my breasts make up their own decisions about my outfit. Anyone else have these problems? Btw- check out Bloody Nora Pam.

My maternal Grandmother and Grandfather on their wedding day.
I didn’t really know my Grandfather. He committed suicide when I was 12 years old. I only remember snap shots from that time; that was the first time I ever saw my dad cry. My mom was more stoic, or as she says “in denial, which I LIKE!” She said that she made peace “with it” very quickly because she felt if he was in pain—he wasn’t anymore. She never remarried but went on to have a successful career as a top legal librarian, had several modest homes, and in addition to working full time also traveled internationally. She also wrote poetry, painted, was a good piano player and a singer!
She was a devout Catholic but she would tell us the creepiest ghost stories when we stayed at her cabin on Whidbey as children. One was about a reincarnated demon who would inhabit the body of innocent people with pink eyes! 😂😂 Leave it to an Irish-German Catholic to bring out the shadow side of a young child’s mind.
I was not raised in the church but would attend Mass with her as a child. I remember the highlight was getting donuts and hot coco with spray can whipping cream after the service.
At my Grandfathers funeral I remember my Grandma leaning over and telling me that “everyone who is good goes to Heaven—even dogs!” I think there was some undercurrent of Catholic bullshit about the victims of suicide not getting a seat in Heaven—or some such crap.
She was definitely a person who loved people and in spite of her religion she was not in any way a bigot. Ever. Straight, gay, black or white—she had a diverse group of friends that she loved. She was quick with a joke, could be sarcastic and was known for stealing random glasses of wine at parties.
I don’t think of her often but when I do I realize I miss her. I would have liked my daughter to have known her. But I guess that’s what stories are for.
