A little about our purpose: 

As we stated in our first post, this blog was created to remind all of us of the amazing women who dedicate their lives to public service. Some of them might be forgotten, don’t get much credit, or are fighting a very hard uphill battle, but we dedicate each post to sharing herstory with you.


A little about the blog authors:

giphy-3BrowneyedJude loves nature, yoga, public transportation, traveling around the world, and convincing QueenJules to do active-type things.

Her lady heroes include:

Fictional: Lisa Simpson, Leslie Knope, and Elaine Benes
Non-fictional: Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Ann Richards, and Sandra Cisneros

istanbul-famous-fat-cat-copyQueenJules loves reading, napping, exploring, and to-do lists (whether they get done or not).

Her lady heroes include:

Fictional: Jessica B. Fletcher, Dana Scully, Leslie Knope, and Penelope (of Odyssey fame)
Non-Fictional: Emily Hahn, Nellie Bly, Jane Austen, and Margaret Atwood


We bonded over our love of Dolly Parton, bodies of water, and the interwebz. We are inspired by the ladies in our lives, who continue to rule in their personal and professional lives.



A little about our gratitude:


It deserves to be repeated: Our first thanks, of course, goes to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Thank you for your tireless efforts and providing us inspiration when we needed it most.

“Now, I know we have still not shattered that highest and hardest glass ceiling, but some day someone will and hopefully sooner than we might think right now. And — and to all the little girls who are watching this, never doubt that you are valuable and powerful and deserving of every chance and opportunity in the world to pursue and achieve your own dreams.”

A little about our blog rules:

We would love to hear from you about your lady heroes, whether they are currently in the public eye, in history, or in your daily life. We welcome different perspectives but we reserve the right to remove any negative and unhelpful comments. We will include citations in posts for original work and direct quotes. If you are interested in where we get our information, send us a note through comments or our contact page.
