  1. If it wasn’t for you, I’d still be stuck in my high school version of women’s history that I didn’t particularly like. You make this fascinating. Bravo!!!!

  2. Really enjoy these news notes and the commentary to go along with it.

  3. Lots of useful links here. I love the “news notes” feature; it always gives me at least a couple of hours worth of digging into cool stuff.

    Please keep this feature going!

  4. I have shared your website in my social networks!

  5. Everything I could imagine to learn about this movement from the bottom up and how it continues until this day. I ask myself, How come I didn’t learn about this in school? Were the teachers asleep? Or didn’t they think it important?

  6. Is there another place to get this kind of news? I don’t think so. I look forward to following you on RSS feed.

  7. I went through all the links and found some awesome things to read about. I mean don’t get me wrong its tough times to read about but the amount of details that I got from them is huge!

  8. This saves me a lot of trouble figuring out what’s going on. I like the news notes links.
