Who’s Missing from Women’s History?

March 12, 2012

Last week, we asked you to share which historical women had an influence on your life. If you haven’t had the chance to respond to our poll, there’s still time.

Now that we know the women you’re inspired by, we’re wondering — which women made history but didn’t make it into history books? Help us identify the lesser-known ladies from our past by taking part in our second Women’s History Month poll!

  1. Merlin Stone was an amazing woman who helped many women in the 70’s and 80’s re-discover their feminine roots and begin the long road to reclaiming the power that was systematically stripped from them over years of patriarchal disempowerment. Her book “When God Was A Woman” helped reacquaint women with their lost heritage of a long line of goddesses from the dawn of time, and the sacredness of woman. Hers is a legacy of empowerment and awakening for women and should be honored and remembered by all women.
