History’s Hidden Heroes: format change

TaipingRebellion.com-rebelsHello my lovely Geek Girls, Guys, and People Who Identify as Intersex or Other-Wise Non-Binary.  We have a format change here on Geek Girl in Love because to my great delight the amazing Sarah Wendell at Smart Bitches, Trashy Books has asked me to write a monthly column for her about real-life women in history.

The only problem with this delightful development is that I don’t actually have time, in between reviewing shows and books and raising my kid and trying to round up freelance projects, to write multiple columns a month on amazing people in history, much as I’d like to.  So once a month I’ll be sharing a link to Kickass Women of History at Smart Bitches, Trashy Books.

This month’s Kickass Woman is Su Sanniang.  She was a Robin Hood style bandit who became a general during the Taiping Rebellion.  She was said to have “powerful arms and the air of a hero.”   My kind of woman!  Click on the link above to learn more about her, or go to smartbitchestrashybooks.com.
