I always love your post of heros but as a recent viewer I haven't seen post on females to be admired for their contribution to the pursuit of social justice.

The women need some praise Gerald.

Anonymous,

Believe it or not, I was just thinking the same thing this afternoon! I'll do something about it starting next weekend.

In the meantime, I believe if you go back to the February Saturday posts, I believe they were all women.

Thanks for reading! And thanks for bringing this to my attention. You're absolutely right...
