I just liked this image of Victorian women daring to smoke and wear men's clothing. Irene Adler comes to mind.
group of women having a smoke, gelatin silver print, c. 1896 I'm seeing this quote attached to this picture: "One of the most feared of all London's street gangs in the late 1880's was a group of female toughs known as the Clockwork Oranges. They would later inspire Anthony Burgess' most notorious novel." but as far as I can find out, it's entirely made up.

Article about the actual diversity of history, even if that's not what historians focused on, and how this intersects with what is and is not accepted in historical fiction and SF/Fantasy. (Includes discussion of actual power of PoC, women, 3rd sex, and non-straight folks in historical contexts.) http://fozmeadows.wordpress.com/2012/12/08/psa-your-default-narrative-settings-are-not-apolitical/

The Gypsies are a close-knit communal people who have a shared background, but are scattered throughout the world. Their origins have been the subject of controversy throughout the centuries, but in modern times, we have discovered, from research into their language, that the gypsies originated in Northern India, from whence they spread throughout Europe and the Middle East.
