Iraq protests: The women rising up on Baghdad's walls


Despite facing disapproval from parents and husbands over fears for their safety - more than 400 people have been killed by security forces - women continue to join the demonstrations, sometimes secretly.

The demonstrations and the murals have enabled women to create a collective community, reclaim their national identity and re-write their history.

Frida Kahlo

Her father was a Hungarian Jew.

Though she claimed allegiance to "Communism" including aiding a fugitive Trotsky, she saw no contradiction in seeking the patronage of American capitalists along with her husband and fellow 'Internationalist', Rivera. Rockefeller, anyone?

Despite all of this, she has become almost synonymous with Mexican culture while others, more authentic, are ignored.
 
Interesting indeed. Thank you very much for your additional information and for sharing your view @OsakaAli


 

In the Name of Revolutionary Justice: The Romanovs' Murder


http://feministpassion.blogspot.com/2018/08/in-name-of-revolutionary-justice.html

Remembering the Russian revolution and the death of the Romanovs, 17 July 1918.
Even though most of the mystery surrounding the murder is considered solved, curiosity about the royal family continues. This curiosity is hard to resist because of what the Czar himself had left us with—hundreds of black and white photographs of the children playing, posing, and smiling, many taken with the Czar’s own camera, as well as the intimate love letters exchanged between the imperial couple. The pictures and letters in a way tell their side of the story. They take us behind the scenes of the economic crisis, war, and scandal which caused the fall of the empire.

Yes, I think a lot of women writers and artists were discovered and their work appreciated by the next generation.
I am a fan of Marilyn French too.

Paris is for (Women) Writers


In the 1920s-1930s, Paris was a safe haven for writers, but although many women writers were part of the Paris scene during this time, they received less recognition than their male peers.
