Women who Changed the World:NaBloPoMo

It’s Women’s History Month. There has been so many important women who have shaped the world. Who do you immediately think of when you think about women (past or present) who bring about change?

There are quite a few choices: Jane Addams, Nelly Bly, Cleopatra. I’m just going to write a bit about two influential women, Virginia Woolf and Margaret Bourke-White.

 

Virginia Woolf was influential in my world at least. Her quote about having a room of one’s own struck a chord with me. I have a pair of shoes that reminds me of Virgina Woolf. Maybe if I write while wearing them I’ll be a great writer. Maybe not but it’s worth a shot. It could just be me, a computer, some journals and the shoes in a room writing a novel.

If it wasn’t for Virgina Woolf, I wouldn’t have given much thought to writing.

Margaret Bourke -White was the first female war photojournalist. She was also the first female photographer for Life magazine. I don’t necessarily want to be a photojournalist on the frontlines of war; however, because of Margaret Bourke-White I have a choice. It’s good to have options.

I could be the worst cook in America. My boyfriend tells his friends about my cooking disasters. I'm glad someone is amused. I like movies, music, comic books and corny jokes. View all posts by holley4734

    I am old enough to remember male/female help wanted ads, and when there was an attitude that a woman working was taking a job from a man. You picked two strong women to blog about. As someone interested in photography, I have admired Margaret Bourke-White for many years.
