This is my pal comradeloyski1 a while back she and a collaborator meticulously researched developed and produced a bbcradio4 documentary about the Lost Woman of British jazz. It is super fascinating and a really entertaining listen. 🎶
One of the women featured in The Lost Women of British Jazz is now due to have a historic blue plaque outside her house commemorating her contribution to jazz music.
In fact she is the FIRST woman to be awarded a blue plaque in Tooting. 🎶
Her name is Sadie Crawford and she was a Jazz Pioneer. 🎶
Without Hannah and her collaborator Jay, this woman’s story and contribution to music would have been forgotten.
This month is women’s history month. For too long women’s contribution has been written out of history. It’s up to us to share the stories of the forgotten women. Feel free to tell us about any women you would like to highlight. .

She was a geologist and a trailblazer for women in Antarctic science. Rosemary was the first New Zealand woman to undertake her own research programme in Antarctica, living for weeks in tent camps, far from the relative comfort of Scott Base. She was part of expeditions that discovered Antarctica's richest-known site of fossilised fish remains and the first mammal fossils. Rosemary's research skills and fortitude in the harsh Antarctic conditions set a benchmark for the women who followed her into the previously all-male domain of Antarctic science. The naming of Mount Askin in the Antarctic Darwin Mountains recognised her special contribution to Antarctic research.

I mean who else could go from down and out teenage mom to Oscar, Emmy, Grammy and Tony winning actor, producer, and writer? And be so goddamned cool while doing it. As a kid she made me laugh but it was only as an adult I discovered my favorite Whoopi role...after a bestie made me read “The Color Purple” because she was teaching the book in class. I cheated and watched the movie first...and have loved it ever since. herstorywomenshistorymonthwhoopigoldbergthecolorpurplemissceliesblueshttps://scontent.cdninstagram.com/e6056212349158ebe2cd5e112ae073b9/5B4CDEEC/t51.2885-15/e35/28766863_893163774177847_1032462820303699968_n.jpg2018-03-18

Feminism in IndiaFeminism in India2018-03-18Dr JanakiAmmal was one of the pioneering forces of Botanical Science in the post-independent years of emerging India. Invited by then Prime Minister JawaharlalNehru himself, Janaki Ammal organized the renewal of the Botanical Survey of India, leaving behind an astounding legacy of a three-decade-long career spent in service of the country.
She was not immune to the prevailing gender-based discrimination of those times. Ammal’s status as a single woman also contributed to the stagnancy of her career in a largely patriarchal and conservative academia of her times.
All she had to say whenever asked about her life is, “My work is what will survive”, and rightly so. Her work has survived and garnered multifold praise when people realized the depth and breadth of it as time went by. She received many awards and accolades – the PadmaShri in 1977 being one of them.

https://instatbt.com/Place/los-angeles-county-arboretum---botanic-garden/99816Los Angeles County Arboretum & Botanic GardenRepeat after me: I. Am. Enough.
It so easy in today’s society to believe no matter how much we do, it’s never enough. Trust me, I do this to myself ALL the time. Every moment I choose to rest and not be productive is “wasted” time. I can be putting all my energy and focus into work, but there’s always something “more” I could be doing. To some degree we all do this, and I want you to know I have so much compassion for you.
I have compassion because I know the effects this type of spiral thinking can do. For me, my emotions manifest in my body. Sometimes it’s anxiety, sometimes it’s nausea… the list goes on. The point is our minds are more powerful than we give them credit for.
If any of this rings true for you just know that we are all doing the best we can with what we have. And that is always enough.
