    This badass was labelled "more dangerous than a thousand rioters" by the Chicago Police Department. She was born into slavery and became one of the only women allowed to speak at labor movement gatherings. Lucy E. [González or Gonzales] Parsons was a Black, Chciana and First Nations radical socialist and anarchist labor organizer (1853-1942). Photo taken in 1920.

    For What? Painted by Frederick Varley in 1917. Almost 100 years later, we are still confronted with events that beg the same question.

    I found empowering romance fiction on Pinterest! Colour me shocked, something other than 50 Shades of Grey and Twilight. A.C. Gaughen is Pinfuriating's badass of the week. She's a YA author who writes assertive female characters who don't disintegrate into braindead damsel zombies when they fall in love. My only critique of AC Gaughen is that there aren't enough cool libraries on her library board.

    A bucket list item related to music that ISN'T T-Swift or 1D? This pinner has taste.


    100 years ago, 3 years ago: the war on women continues. Virginia police in full riot gear with machine guns showed up at a women's rights protest at the Virginia State Capitol. Hundreds of people were protesting a new amendment that passed that Virginia House that would require women to have an ultrasound before having an abortion. 31 people were arrested.

    Happy Women's Equity Day, pinners! I'm taking today to pin a woman that inspires me and encourage you to do the same. This is not a trained activist, not a public figure, but a woman who took a stand when she saw an anti-abortion protest outside a clinic where women were trying to receive care.

    Sunday: MURDER. This is one of my favourites. Also, if you own a cat, put a bell or a coloured bib on that thing to give the prey a head start.

    "Stickwork" by Patrick Dougherty. Or, what happens when you live in a house with women who have long hair.

    You should repin the #lastwords campaign by journalist Shirin Barghi, which shows the last recorded words spoken by unarmed African Americans shot by police. Kenneth Chamberlain, a retired marine, was 68 when he accidentally pressed his MedicAlert necklace from his home. Police broke down his door, tasered him twice, then shot him dead. The autopsy showed Kenneth's arms were at his sides. No criminal charges were made against police officers involved and they're still working as officers today.

    This is why the flag offends me. I think Pinterest should really get rid of all of the Confederate DIY. If you agree, repin.

    50 Years Ago Today, Black Students Desegregate Alabama's Schools

    “I guess if I’d had any sense, I’d have been a little scared – but what was the point of being scared? The only thing they could do was kill me, and it kinda seemed like they’d been trying to do that a little bit at a time since I could remember.” - Spoken by Fannie Lou Hamer, a civil rights leader, on why she put her life in danger when she volunteered to register to vote. An inspiration today for women to become true democratic citizens: protesting, vocal activists who take charge.
