To all the women who quietly made history.
Finally, and this is important: even those women who weren’t inventors and intellectuals, even those women who really did spend all their lives doing stereotypical “women’s work”—they also built this world. The mundane labor of life is what makes everything else possible. Before you can have scientists and engineers and artists, you have to have a whole bunch of people (and it’s usually women) to hold down the basics: to grow and harvest and cook the food, to provide clothes and shelter, to fetch the firewood and the water, to nurture and nurse, to tend and teach. Every single scrap of civilized inventing and dreaming and thinking rides on top of that foundation. Never forget that. (x)

This picture has such a funny story. After this man came home from the war, he was on his way home, so excited, when he grabbed this lady and kissed her. A random photographer saw it and snapped the picture. Everyone at the time was obsessed with this picture, and the man was greatly wanted by movies and newspapers, but they never found him…then he popped up on the news 60 years later. The reason he never revealed his true identity was because he was married, and he didn’t want his wife seeing the picture and getting mad at him for kissing another woman.
read and relate♥
