It’s Women’s History Month and I know that there are several women who I enjoy learning about because of how they changed the world for me. My early days were consumed with the fascination of Elizabeth Blackwell, MD, reportedly the first women doctor. From there I branched out to so many amazing women… Though I know I’ve just scratched the surface of the really neat women who have changed my life without every knowing me or even being alive during my lifetime.
When we look at how pregnancy and childbirth have changed through the years, there is a long line up of women who have advocated and outright fought to help women. I’d like to announce that Birth Activist is hosting a blog carnival about women in history who have changed pregnancy and birth. Who is your heroine? Who amazes you?
The rules are simple:
- Write a post featuring your heroine from pregnancy and childbirth history. (Your amazing woman does not have to be deceased to be included!)
- Send us a link to your post at firstname.lastname@example.org by March 20
- The blog carnival will run on March 25, 2010
Need some inspiration? Leave a comment and we’ll share with you some women who will knock your socks off!
