When I was a student at Cambridge I remember an anthropology professor holding up a picture of a bone with 28 incisions carved in it. “This is often considered to be man’s first attempt at a calendar” she explained. She paused as we dutifully wrote this down. ‘My question to you is this – what man needs to mark 28 days? I would suggest to you that this is woman’s first attempt at a calendar.’
It was a moment that changed my life. In that second I stopped to question almost everything I had been taught about the past. How often had I overlooked women’s contributions?
Hi there! I got it at anthropologie a few weeks ago! Go grab it before it’s gone!
I think you’re perfect just the way you are. =]
I make a cameo in the Josephine Doe five drive promo! Help out our newest feature film (on which I’m the official content strategist), Josephine Doe. It’s written by a woman, de-stigmatizes mental illness, passes the bechdel test and is the first feature film to have a content strategist! COME ON!
