Women's History Month.

Want to talk about Women in history? Lets talk about the ones that really made a difference. Not the ones that couldn't hold a candle to the strong mothers of our nation.


Mary Fields
Born a slave in Tennessee in 1832, this tall, powerfully built woman was ambitious, daring and liked a good fight. With no formal education, she forged her way to Ohio and on to the Montana Territory. Declaring herself the protector of the Ursuline nuns at St. Peter's Catholic Mission near Cascade,Montana, Mary defended those she loved from predators on two legs as well as four. She delivered the mail by stagecoach, never missing a day until she was almost 80 years old. She died in Cascade in 1914.

Great women. As Gertrude Stein said: "There are five sexes: heterosexual men, heterosexual women, homosexual men, homosexual women and American women."

I must agree with that. I love digging around and finding the wonderful strong mothers of our nation. Women that didn't give a damn if you liked them or not. They were strong and determined to do what they wanted.

This woman should have been showcased in Black History month in my mind. An Example. However its easier to pick up on the ones that had assistance in their lives. I am sorry but most women that I have seen showcased had to errr, have some assistance in their deeds/lives.
I.E. Sandra Day O'conner was appointed and the Christian Women united and pressured to get her into her position. I included. She didn't do that by herself. She was also a disappointiment to most of the Christian women that worked to get her there.
