Re: Introduce yourself here- MARCH 2021

I'm not new but I really love the sense of community these threads create Smiley Happy

 

1. What's your favourite thing about autumn?

I love Autumn, it's my favourite season. I really enjoy the fashion of autumn. I feel so much more comfortable wearing long pants, jackets and boots and Autumn is perfect for it; its a cool season but its not too cold to require you to layer up to keep warm. 

 

2. Challenge: Make an acronym or acrostic poem with the word AUTUMN AND/OR post a picture of a cool leaf!

I really tried to make an acrostic poem but the letters don't fit with how I would describe autumn. It does remind me of one of my favourite poems called 'To Autumn' so here are some leaves that I feel encapsulate that.

3. Who's your favourite female historical figure and why?

Joan of Arc because she never backed down and symbolises liberation.

4. Do you have an important female role model in your life? Who is it and why do you look up to them?

I look up to many female role models, be that from social media or my friends. In particular, one of my friends is fearless when it comes to being who they are, no matter who is watching.

 

5. What's something you'd like to learn more about this month?

I would like to learn more about myself, I would also like to learn more about what makes good film and photography and how to properly operate a camera.

 

Re: Introduce yourself here- MARCH 2021

What a lovely Autumnal/Feminist theme for the month! <3 <3 <3 

 

1. What's your favourite thing about Autumn?

I have to agree with you @Rattata it's the fashion! Coats and Boots and Stockings are LIFE but I hate being cold, so autumn is the bomb cause you can wear these fun things before it gets tooooooo chilly to ever be outdoors.

 

2. Challenge: Make an acronym or acrostic poem with the word AUTUMN AND/OR post a picture of a cool leaf!

This made me realise it has been TOO long since I did an acrostic poem!

A - Always

U - Use

T - The

U - Umbrella,

M - Moist

N - Never

 

3. Who's your favourite female historical figure and why?

It was too hard to pick an absolute fav, but Anne Lister is a BOSS who was a businesswoman in England in the 1800s. She also loved science, travel, reading, AND wearing "mens clothes." Anne ALSO married Ann Walker in what is commonly known as the first ever lesbian wedding in 1834. 

 

4. Do you have an important female role model in your life? Who is it and why do you look up to them?

Yes! I really look up to my Aunts. They are badass, caring, intelligent women who have always looked out for me and my brother. I also have some pretty incredible friends in my life who are single mums, and I am constantly amazed by everything they do and all the wonderful things they have achieved. 

 

5. What's something you'd like to learn more about this month?

Great question! I am going to try and listen to more podcasts this month to learn all sorts of new things!

@Hannah-RO 
Clearly I need to change my answer to the last question, I must do some reading on Anne Lister!
Highkey disappointed school doesn't teach us about more historical women, particularly queer women.
Thank you for enlightening me. Smiley Very Happy

Re: Introduce yourself here- MARCH 2021

OH my goshhh could not agree more about the highkey disappointment!!! Its ridiculous. There was a show called Gentleman Jack that came out about Anne Lister a couple of years ago that I would recommend for a fun way of learning more about her Smiley Very Happy

 

(Julie D'Aubigny is another amazing historical queer woman worth checkin out! She loved singing and dueling and generally being an absolute boss)

Re: Introduce yourself here- MARCH 2021

1. What's your favourite thing about autumn?

My favourite thing about autumn is the fact that It’s not incredibly hot anymore. My favourite season in winter so I’m happy that it’s getting colder.

3. Who's your favourite female historical figure and why?

Rosalind Franklin, because of her work that helped us discover molecular structures of DNA. I think that’s awesome.

 

4. Do you have an important female role model in your life? Who is it and why do you look up to them?

My mother, of course. She’s helped me in so many ways that I cannot articulate why and how much I look up to her.

 

5. What's something you'd like to learn more about this month?

I’d like to understand how the woman’s movement came to be and what I can do, as a woman myself, to support others who need it.

Re: Introduce yourself here- MARCH 2021

Hello,

I am Lolo. I am from Africa and I migrated to Australia some years ago. I have been working with families and children  for a very long, as a paediatrics physio and as a youth leader. I married with 2 lovely kids. I discovered that human problems are basically the same everywhere, slight difference maybe due to cultural issues.

Advancement  in technology and civilization  have brought  challenges upon our world. What were once vices are now norms. So what can we do?  Solve the problems. I guess this is one the task of Reachout.com. The holy writ says we should be our brothers keeper and that is why I am here contributing my own little quota.

Guess what! I was watching mastermind today and someone's expert topic was Anne Lister and I was the only one in my family to know who they were talking about! Which is actually pretty sad because it shows how little attention female historical figures get but it was nice to see someone bring some light on her.
