Over the years I have learned about many different women throughout history. Some are saints, some are sisters and mothers, some can only be called sluts (although there will be no name calling here), hence the name of the blog. But all of these women have made an impact on the lives of the people around them and often on the rest of us.
As women, we have come a long way over the centuries, but that doesn’t mean we don’t still have a way to go. Women all over the world are facing challenges. One woman dies in childbirth every 90 seconds, sex trafficking is still a huge problem in parts of the world, and here in the US we still rank 65th with regard to women being involved in politics. The issues are varied, but if history tells us anything it’s that we can overcome.
There are many women throughout history that inspire me. Some of these have worked in math and science in times when women were rare in those fields, some have worked for the betterment of the world in general. Some are not well known, while some are common names. As I discover and learn more about these women, I hope to share what I learn with you. Maybe some of them will inspire you as well.
Susan Abernethy has written quite a few posts for the blog. She brings with her years of study in areas that I know very little about. She started her own blog, The Freelance History Writer, last fall and has continued her great posts there. I appreciate all of her additions here.
So join me and learn a little history along the way. I hope we can all be inspired to do our part to make the world a better place for all women and the people in their lives.
I am a former teacher in the telecommunications field in addition to teaching math and biology at the high school/community college level. Even though I studied math and science, I have always loved history. Now that I can read at my leisure, I am indulging again in history!
Feel free to contact me with any questions or feedback.
Thanks for reading!
