International Women's Day

So the day is upon us, 8:th of March (Grassmonth, old school) so let's celebrate! One brave woman to celebrate is: Lydia Litvyak, 12 victory female russian fighter pilot from WWII.

The other one is Lise Ottessen-Jenssen, that, in the early 20 century, taught men and women how to use contraceptives, and thereby avoid getting more children than they could feed. For this she was repeatedly arrested by the police.

I will not, however, celebrate Valerie Salinas, as I consider her a nutcase. Although intelligent and witty, she was seriously disturbed, probably because being sexually abused as a child
