Women's History Month: A month celebrating women of history! I will be posting media and book recommendations, highlighting women from (mostly) the 18th century, and otherwise sharing content with an emphasis on women in history.
"For those who know how to look beyond the mere surface of history, the action of women in France during the eighteenth century will not soon be forgotten. She appears in that age--the most remarkable since that of the Reformation--connected with every important question. We behold her giving a stronger impulse to literature, aiding the development of philosophy and thought; and, like many, earnestly seeking, through all the mists and errors of human knowledge, to solve the great social and political problems which still agitate us in our day: the legacy of the past to the future.
--Julie Kavanagh, 'Women in France in the Eighteenth-Century'
