The world changes in the blink of an eye. In the 21st century, we have the luxury of visiting scenes from history in books, film, and documents, with the safety and conveniences of modern life. Join me to examine the lives of our ancestors, imagine their experiences, and connect with their struggles and triumphs.

Women's History Month

For Women's History Month, I'll be focusing on items relating to women as much as possible. As a historian, the lack of resources which mention women outside the context of household management, "frivolous pursuits," or celebrity is frustrating, but we do find bits here and there. Their voices can be heard; we just have to listen closer.
