If you're a history nut like me, you've been enjoying all of the posts throughout February in celebration of Black History Month. Since we like to let the good times roll here at The Bilerico Project, we're dressing up the site for Women's History Month throughout the month of March. To kick us off, here's a shout out to one of my favorite feminist icons: Ms. Pacman!
I'm so passionate about women's history because it's been my life raft. My favorite historian Gerda Lerner said: "Women's history is the primary tool of women's emancipation." For me, learning about women's history, and in particular lesbian history, has enabled me to realize that I am not alone and that other women have gone before me. When I was living in rural Idaho, that meant the world to me.
We have some fabulous guest posts lined up, so I hope you're as excited as I am. Now let's get this party started!
