WOMEN AND ADVERSITY: WELCOME, 2024!
This year marks the 10th anniversary of me writing Women and Adversity. As I stated in my initial 2023 post, I started this blog to promote women writers and praise their achievements. I expanded past authors and have included musicians, athletes and businesswomen. In 2023 I featured women in politics across the globe and ended with the four women who won a Nobel Prize. This year I plan to feature women whose achievements were credited to men. Oh, no!! Historical novelist Marie Benedict writes about this in Her Hidden Genius. Rosalind Franklin discovered the components of DNA, but men stole the glory from her.
When I wrote my three ebooks in 2020: Honoring 23 Black Women, Recognizing 23 Notable Mothers, and Saluting 23 Faithful Suffragists, I featured them on my blog. Some are historical figures while others are living their dreams or pursuing their dreams.
My purpose in writing this blog is not only to highlight women but to encourage women to overcome obstacles standing in their way.
