It’s International Women’s Day! Because I love feminism and women’s history, I’ve rounded up some of my favorite women’s history resources around the Net. Enjoy!
♥ Rejected Princesses is amazing: a former DreamWorks animator illustrates women “too awesome, awful, or offbeat for kids’ movies”.
♥ Take Back Halloween answers the seeming default for women’s Halloween costumes to various permutations of sexy nurse, sexy firefighter, sexy…Olaf from Frozen???–with how-to costume guides for women in history as well as mythology.
♥ Only two videos of these were ever done, which makes me very sad, but Boss Bitches of History features a cheeky, irreverent style, and porn stars in tea party dresses (!!!)
♥ Breaking news: Feminist Frequency just announced a crowdfunding campaign for a new web series, Ordinary Women: Daring to Defy History. It looks AMAZING!
♥ AND here are three articles I wrote for Her Campus on the subject! There’s this piece for Women’s History Month, this one for International Women’s Day, and though this one wasn’t for March, I’m very proud of this Aggie Pride piece on the feminist history of the bicycle.
♥ Sadly, I still haven’t seen Hamilton, but since this list was a little lacking for projects created by women of color (all the projects I’ve listed are admirable diverse in the women they cover, but I was technically the only “creator” of color), wrapping up this impromptu treasure box is an amazing video of the Schuyler Sisters rapping quotes about feminism.
