Here I am, another Sunday. I cannot write about what is obsessing me because it upsets me too much so I will purposefully write about something else.
I should say I will not, I refuse not… to write about what is obsessing me. I did that Friday.
I have another obsession? Women in History – especially in the arts.
I researched Berthe Morisot the other day and fell in love with her. Why don’t I know of these women? I still want to read the biography of Elizabeth Vighee-LeBrun – it is free to read online. I need to do it and stop talking about it.

It is so ancient I could even republish it.
Forbes has become a recent friend because they enjoy making lists of the Top 100 this and that and I am waiting for their Top 100 Power Women of 2012 so I may research more of them.
I have discovered some awesome modern day women from these lists.
I write about them. I reach into their biographies as deeply as I am able with little published in English. I share what I find with people via my blog. These women are doing it. They are bravely leading nations into the future instead of being bewildered by a culture that too often squashes their voices under ridiculous debate of what is legitimate and what is illegitimate.
I have to be careful about “talking” about this because I get too carried away.
I’ve offered you some names of remarkable women. I dare you to choose one and google it. Learn more for yourself.
At least come to know another remarkable woman a tiny bit better.
