Circus strongwoman Katie Sandwina 
"Holding her husband overhead had become a popular feat, and to add to that, for the finale Sandwina lifted three men."

Strong and gorgeous! :D
Also her dad would offer a reward of 100 marks to any man in the audience who could beat her in wrestling. No one ever succeeded. XD During one of these she met her future husband of 52 years. XD

If you ever feel like you’ve screwed up, just remember that in 1348 the Scots thought it would be a good idea to invade England because the English were weakened by the Plague. They subsequently caught the plague themselves, went back to Scotland, and killed half their own population.

22 years ago today, the first photo was uploaded to the web – and it was of an all-girl science rock band from CERN, signing about colliders, quarks, and antimatter.
Oh, and they were actually really, really good.

the first female chinese immigrant to america was a sixteen-year-old girl who was part of a cultural exhibit where she sat in a life-size diorama and people watched her eat with chopsticks while wearing silk clothes and that’s really all you need to know about the commodification of chinese women

It would be really great if you included her name in this post tho.

her name was Afong Moy, stage name “The Chinese Lady.”

And here is more information

Red Warriors used violent force to remove Neo Nazi gangs from France and provide safe spaces for immigrants during the rise of white nationalism and an outbreak of violent crime against people of colour. They formed a squat called “L.U.S.I.N.E” and were consideredthe most effective gang to counter nazi violence, working to instill fear in their opposition.
