Well; much less often, at least, ever since "consent" became a thing.

Damn feminists!

I only skimmed the thread so apologies if it was mentioned, but Hedy Lamarr (not Hedley Lamarr!) was instrumental in developing frequency hopping techniques that were of immense value in WWII.

And then, of course, there's this...

I've read about this before. For those who may not know, Hedy Lamarr was at one time considered one of the most beautiful women in the world. She was a lousy actress though.

She was also famous for being in the 1933 film Ecstasy which was the first to depict a woman having an orgasm. There is no nudity but it's amazing, for 1933 that is.





I think the movie was filmed in Europe. Hedy was Austrian, I believe.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

Yep, she was instrumental to the foundation of our current global wireless communications technology, which arguably makes about as influential as Einstein or Oppenheimer given just how much global wireless communications have changed the world.

Can't stop at just one, but just a few:

Artemisia Gentileschi, Sojourner Truth, Rosa Parks, Ida Wells, Dorothea Dix, Mary McLeod Bethune, Alice Paul, Ayn Rand, Dr. Elizabeth Blackwell, Marie Curie, Rachel Carson, Marie Goeppert-Meyer, Florence Nightengale, Gertrude Elion, Mahalia Jackson, Ada Lovelace, Queen Elizabeth, Queen Isabella of Spain, Susan B. Anthony, Clara Burton, Mary Cassatt, Emily Dickinson, Willa Cather, Virginia Dare, Anne Bradstreet, Eleanor Roosevelt, Henrietta Johnson, . . . .

Great list. The problem for women is that we had almost zero control over our lives until the last 60 or 70 years. For thousands of years we were just chattel and simply owned by men so the few women who could make a difference in the world were usually wealthy women or part of a royal family.

Two you might add to the list is Eleanor of Aquitaine and Cleopatra. They were both formidable women. There is also a female Emperor in China back in the 600 AD times named Wu Zetian. She actually ruled as an "Emperor" rather than empress. It took some doing to accomplish this for a female in those days.

Why is this thread still going on?


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces
