Luke 10 i den feministiske jule-kalenderen // Name a bitch badder than Taylor Swift
Velkommen til Kommentarfeltets feministiske julekalender! Hver dag frem til jul vil jeg skrive en kort (eller lang) notis om det som opptar meg - med feministisk vinkling.
I kveld - en notis av det svært korte slaget. Kanskje ikke en notis i det hele tatt, men mer et tips.
Sjekk ut Twitter-tråden som starter med at en bruker tvitret: Name a bitch badder than Taylor Swift.
Tråden utviklet seg til å bli akkurat det - en liste over damer som er fyller Swift sine sko, og vel så det når det kommer til badness.
Eksempler på kvinnene som nevnes:
Greg Jenner✔@greg_jenner: Jeanne de Clisson, murderous French aristocrat-turned-pirate who named her ship My Revenge after the French king executed her husband. She spent the next decade killing all the French crews she encountered, sparing only 1 sailor to relay her message of vengeance.
@moviehistories: Franceska Mann, the Polish ballerina, who, while being led to the gas chamber, stole a Nazi guard?s gun, shot him dead, and started a female-led riot that gave hope to all of the prisoners of Auschwitz in the face of certain death.
Lauren Brown✔@laurenalixb: Virginia Woolf: she fought the patriarchy, pioneered stream of consciousness writing, co-founded a publishing company, had a female lover, struggled with depression, and walked into a river with rocks in her pockets when she was done with life.
Meryl O'Rourke©@MerylORourke: My great aunt Wanda, with a 1 year old at home, Jewish, smuggled herself back INTO Nazi Germany in the boot of a car to rescue her mother. They left on last train out, stopped by border guard who took their wedding rings as payment. Both lived long happy lives in Surrey.
Samantha Mash @anamericanghost: Khutulun was the great-great-granddaughter of Genghis Khan. She was a strong fighter and insisted that any man who wished to marry her must defeat her in wrestling, but any man who she beat would have to give her a horse. She wound up with 10,000 horses.
