I’ve had lots of new followers since my last real update, but being featured by Sadie Magazine was the final kick I needed to get back to this.
Here’s a quick rundown of the philosophy behind this blog:
Women’s achievements tend to go, not necessarily unmentioned, but uncredited in the history books. Women have always been doing awesome stuff, much of which we couldn’t do without in today’s world. But the problem is so few are remembered and honored for their contributions to the modern science and society (like inventing Kevlar). And there are also women who have done stuff that is just flat out impressive (like striking out Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig back-to-back). So the point of this blog is to be cheeky and stick our collective tongues out at sexists who make stupid jokes about sandwiches and kitchens and tell them to GTFO their Wi-Fi if they don’t want the ghost of Hedy Lamarr to come after them.
I tend to avoid posts about women who were just the “first woman” to do something— but fortunately, most “first women” did plenty of other awesome stuff in their lives.
As for me, I’m Alexa, I’m a ladytype and a feminist (shocker!). I also run another blog about ladies, the ones in the comics medium, called Ladies Making Comics which, you know, you could check out and follow maybe? I do have a full-time job, which is nice, but I’m still working out how to comfortably fit blogging into my days, so submissions are very much appreciated!
Thanks for following, hope you enjoy and learn some things!
