My wonderful American history professor told us that when he first started teaching in the mid-1990s, a young woman came into his office and asked if they were really going to be reading all of the stuff on the syllabus about women. When he said yes, she started crying for joy. Apparently, his predecessor made quite a show out of deliberately skipping over anything to do with women’s history, and regarded it as useless information since all the important stuff was done by men anyway.
I guess the accomplishments of people like Margaret Sanger, Helen Keller, Alice Paul, and Rachel Carson should just be ignored because it’s Their Fault They’re Female.
