"Woman in sensible armor! A rare vintage photograph of an onna-bugeisha, one of the female warriors of the upper social classes in feudal Japan. Often mistakenly referred to as “female samurai”, female warriors have a long history in Japan, beginning long before samurai emerged as a warrior class." Girl Power!!-
Rare photo of a female samurai. Women were always powerful. In Samurai life, everyone was trained in warfare. / another caption for this photo: Rare vintage photograph of an onna-bugeisha, one of the female warriors of the upper social classes in feudal Japan
A rare vintage photograph of an onna-bugeisha. An onna-bugeisha (女武芸者?) was a type of female warrior belonging to the Japanese upper class. Many wives, widows, daughters, and rebels answered the call of duty by engaging in battle, commonly alongside samurai men. They were members of the bushi (samurai) class in feudal Japan and were trained in the use of weapons to protect their household, family, and honour in times of war. They also represented a divergence from the traditional "housewife" role of the Japanese woman. They are sometimes mistakenly referred to as female samurai, although this is an oversimplification. Significant icons such as Empress Jingu, Tomoe Gozen, Nakano Takeko, and Hōjō Masako are famous examples of onna bugeisha.

Sarah Bernhardt (1855). Nadar (Félix Tournachon). Photograph printed from a collodion negative. Félix Tournachon, called Nadar, recognized that photography was merely a mechanical process and that the photographer had to be intelligent and creative in order to produce significant works of art with a camera. This photograph of the renowned French actress is an evolutionary link between the Romantic portraits of 19th-century women and the glamour photography of today.

Jean-Jacques Rousseau (1712—July 2, 1778). Philosopher, writer, and political theorist who inspired the leaders of the French Revolution and the Romantic generation. Rousseau was the least academic of modern philosophers and in many ways the most influential. His thought marked the end of the Age of Reason. He had a profound impact on people’s way of life; he taught parents to take a new interest in their children and to educate them differently, and made liberty an almost universal aspiration.

Portrait by Josiah Thompson, American, made between 1849 and 1858. Harvard University, in whose collections the image is held, explains the odd stare by suggesting that the sitter has a glass right eye. His clothing is elegant; his hair has the kind of odd assymetrical shape sometimes seen to even greater extremes in this period.
