This Cheeky 1913 Letter From A Suffragist Is Giving Us Life
Huffington Post - 9 months
Do not mess with Bertha Brewster.  On Feb. 26, 1913, a letter written by Brewster, a British Suffragist, appeared in the U.K. newspaper The Daily Telegraph. The letter is a powerful representation of just how far these women were ready to go to obtain the right to vote.  Brewster politely addressed the short letter to an unknown “Sir,” writing: “Everyone seems to agree upon the necessity of putting a stop to Suffragist outrages; but no one seems certain how to do so.” The suffragist continued that there are “two, and only two” ways to stop the violent protests of the movement: “1. Kill every woman in the United Kingdom,” or “2. Give women the vote.” Read the full note below that was posted to Twitter on Thursday morning by “Letters Of Note,” a book of historical letters.  Vote. https://t.co/XXqoRRioHs pic.twitter.com/t0MRw8xL60 — Letters of Note (@LettersOfNote) June 8, 2017 The British Suffragist Movement began in the late 1800s and fractured into ...

You Wouldn't Know It From The Oscars, But Women Directed Films Last Year Too
Huffington Post - about 2 years
In the Oscars' 88-year history, only four women have been nominated for Best Director, and this year's ballot prompts another damning Hollywood statistic: Of all the non-documentary narratives up for an Academy Award, only one -- Deniz Gamze Ergüven's "Mustang" -- was directed by a woman. What gives? Well, a lot of things: As of 2012, the Oscar voting pool was 77 percent male. And in 2013 and 2014, women made a mere 1.9 percent of the 100 highest-grossing movies. In other words, it's a vicious cycle for female auteurs. But it's not one that's impossible to remedy. Almost half of the movies nominated for the Oscars' two screenplay prizes (adapted and original) were written or co-written by women, which is fantastic. And ladies did direct movies in 2015, no matter what awards season might imply. We have a list of 11 that are worth a watch, and here's to hoping the 2017 Oscars will be a far more hospitable place for people of all genders, races and sexualities. "The Diary of a Te...
