Finding great women from the past and present.

with 2 comments

I would like to know more about great and inspiring women from the past. When I think about the people that I don’t or did not know personally, that have influenced me I am sad to say that there are few women. Some of the men I think of as being great are: Basho, Herman Hesse, Joseph Beuys, The Dali Lama, Derek Jarman and Christy Moore and last but not least my greatest inspiration James Slevin. Though the women I grew up with and went to college with are profoundly inspiring. I wonder why I don’t know about more about great women that I did not know personally? I know they are there. Some of the discovered women I do know through books that I think are great are:  the artist and painter Frida Kahlo, Clarissa Pinkola Estes, who wrote Women who run with wolves, and Suzi Gablic, who wrote a great book called Conversations before the end of time, among others. Please let the great women from the past and present not be a secret anymore! Come out come out who ever you are! Please let me know who you have discovered by writing in the comments section of this post.
