Happy International Women’s Day!

8 Mar


Since Neuronano and I have a lunch date tomorrow, which doesn’t happen too often since we live over 600 miles apart, I thought I’d celebrate by updating the blog that we haven’t posted on for over a year. What better day to get back on the horse than International Women’s Day! I know by the time this gets posted, you may be thinking, “It’s so late in the day to just be finding out now!” but the good news is, it’s also Women’s History Month!

I couldn’t even begin to tell you about ALL of the important women who have changed history, like Marie Curie who was the first woman to win a Nobel Prize in science and the first person to win two Nobel Prizes (one in physics and one in chemistry) or Sandra Day O’Conner who was the first woman appointed to the U.S. Supreme Court. Instead, I offer a challenge this month to learn more about the great contributions made by women. Watch movies and TV shows created by women (I highly recommend The Mindy Project as Mindy Kahling is hilarious!). Read books (or other books) or comic books by women. Consume art and music by women. Appreciate women for all they have to offer.

And if you’re looking for recommendations to get you started, head on over to Captain Awkward and dig through the comments. Don’t be intimidated by the title, there are some really great suggestions down there, I promise!

Happy International Women’s Day/Women’s History Month!
