One of the best thin about being an author is research. In my historical novels, I particularly enjoy including women’s stories in the long list of books I read about a time period. How a society treats women is significant in terms of defining how civilized they are. Women’s rights are actually considered on par with GDP in many world indices that measure standard of living.
Some of the biographies I’d love to read about some famous women include:
Actors would include Katherine Hepburn, Audrey Hepburn, Hedy Lamar, and Marlene Dietrich.
Madam C J Walker
In my general reading, I love to learn more about women’s roles during the First World War as part of the signal corps and nurses, as spies/resistance workers during the war, and those unspoken heroines who manned the home front, the women’s suffrage movement in both the US and England, and I always love those wild women of the west.
Which woman in history would you like to learn more about?
