In Jewish mythology Eve is not the first woman God creates, he created another woman named Lilith. She is very independent and because of this God banishes her from Eden and creates Adam a new wife, Eve who completely obeys him.  This is my interpretation of Lilith who becomes a demon of the night and seduces young men. I will be sharing the complete statue soon! by Flaming June

Quote reads:  “I feel like people don’t respect sleeping beauty just because Aurora was asleep for half the movie. What they forget is that she had to live away from her parents for the first half of her life and that when she woke up she had to run the kingdom. She is a very strong woman.” by hester

The Albino Woman Here is an old cabinet card photograph of an albino woman posing with eyes closed (likely because the flash hurt her eyes) that was taken at the J.S. LoBeau Photography Studio located at 167 Blue Island Avenue in Chicago, Illinois sometime during the 1890's or slightly earlier. I don't know who she was but there is no doubt that she was a carnival or "freak show" performer. by haley

This picture is disgusting. If that woman was dead because of losing her head -- it was sick. I wonder if they had her head remove from the picture because she was a step-mother? The dad looks like he may be post-mortem. This picture was plain weird, no matter what the reasoning behind it was. by jean.patch.100

She had major muscle pain, or “myalgia” in her feet. She had so much pain that she had to wear sneakers all the time. A few weeks later when Jackie came bouncing in the office wearing cute summer sandals, I knew we had to share her amazing story. Here’s how her foot pain by christine

Hildegard von Bingen (1098-1179)  She was a nun who produced major works of theology and visionary writings. She is one of the few identifiable female artists of the medieval period, and the only known composer of Gregorian chant. She ran her own convent, and published several books about natural history and science. Because of this woman… there was more acceptance for women to publish their findings on science, art, and literature during the medieval period. by amelia
