Are Professional Sports Challenging Femininity?

Defining women’s achievement in sports is like placing a governor on an engine.  The engine is restricted from producing max results- just as girls are restricted by being compared to boys – setting the expectation that girls will never be as athleticly competitive as boys. Exploring some history in sports may help explain this hypothesis. […]

The lack of Female Statues in the United States

Momentum is growing to increase the number of women statues that are present in the United States.

The Nightwitch Bombers-delivering fear in the night

If you haven’t read about Marina Raskova and the NightWitches- you are missing out on some amazing history. Deployed out of need in WWII, the Soviet Union commissioned Maj Raskova to find 400 women to fill out their fighter and night bombing squadrons- including the 588th pictured above.
