About

We all know them, the Goddesses. No, no not Venus and Minerva.

Vivien, Liz, Bette, Sophia, Joan, Lauren, Greta, Clara and so on. Yes, but...

But this blog hosts a different take on the classics: Here you'll find the Radicals, the Revolutionaires. Thinkers, Artists, Pinnacles of Passion. The movers and the shakers.

Virginia Woolf, Joanna Newsom, Olga of Russia, Margaret Atwood, Wu-Yi, Judith Butler, Berenice, Karen O, Simone de Beauvior, Golda Meir, Ida B. Wells, Kate Chopin, Sandra Day O'Connor. Even Fiona Apple...especially Fiona Apple.

What is this blog? A haven for women throughout history who have deflected socially constructed gender roles, overthrown dominant Androcentic bodies of culture, and acted in pure, unfiltered and unadulterated states of BAMF-hood.

Joanna Newsom - Have One On Me

It was dark; I was drunk and half-dead,
and we slept, knocking heads,
sitting up in the star-smoking air,
knocking heads like buoys.

Don’t you worry for me!
Will you have one on me?
