So I am thinking about doing a “badass woman of the day” post on here. The idea came about because I was thinking about what my douche of a professor said about how women don’t have a history prior to the 20th century (it’s bullshit, btw). He might as well have just come out and said “women didn’t do anything important prior to the 20th century so we don’t discuss women’s history.” That is also crap. Then I was also thinking about what I would do if for some reason I don’t stay in academics after I get my PhD. Public history is something I am interested in especially because I believe learning about history is incredibly important and history shouldn’t just be the stories of old dead white men. So, in theory, once a day I am going to post about a woman in history from antiquity to present (Palin won’t make the cut; I am sure you are all disappointed). I am also accepting submissions if there is are any women you want to see posted that I haven’t posted about. So, what do you all think?
