If you ever have a chance to visit it, the Women's Rights National Historical Park in Seneca Falls is a very moving place — to say nothing of educational and inspirational. My gal is Frances Perkins, first woman cabinet member and FDR's Secretary of Labor. Perkins witnessed the Triangle Fire, 98 years ago this month, where 146 young factory workers (mostly women) died as a result of employer negligence and greed. Perkins thought she would be a socialite/volunteer but she turned into a crusading reformer from that experience. Great web site here: http://www.ilr.cornell.edu/trianglefire/

Great post - I admire so many women today. Some of my past teachers, my friend's mothers, my own mother and grandmothers... I admire strength and kindness all with a great sense of humour thrown into the mix! Many thanks for posting the links - am going to go back and start reading through now. Have a lovely day!

It occurs to me that I need to follow your example and have myself put into more of our family photos. I'm rarely there, and that's a bad thing. I want our pictures to be full of images like yours!
