Wednesday Video: Women Getting Shit Done in the 19th Century

WednesdayVideoWell, this is just…cool!  Here’s a thirteen minute long video on women in the 19th Century that somehow manages to incorporate a reference to Wonder Woman and to Princess Leia.  It’s funny and inspiring.  Check it out!

“But wait!”  you say, “There’s no video here!”  Due to technical difficulties, I’m including a link but not embedding an actual video.  Darn technical difficulties.  On the plus side, you get to check out The Mary Sue, which is a great website.  Consider it a two-for-one Wednesday deal!

A Link: “We Have Always Fought”

This Memorial Day, please check out this essay by Kameron Hurley, “‘We Have Always Fought’:  Challenging the ‘Women, Cattle, and Slaves Narrative”.  The words are moving and thought-provoking, and the art is stunning.  Hope your three day weekend was a good one!
