Having grown sick of only studying men in my History degree I have created an online temple for women of the past and present who have played a role, however seemingly insignificant, in history. From Riot Grrrls to Marie Curie.

I blog inspiring (and sometimes not so inspiring) female artists, activists, scientists, business-women, journalists, and scholars.

I hope to inspire fellow women (and men) who are sick of the male-centric world.

I am Emy, a lover of history, bike mechanics, Ancient Egypt, philosophy and dancing.
