Know your fashion icons.

From MGNSW: “Lee Lin Chin was born in Jakarta, Indonesia, of Chinese extraction. She was educated in Singapore and, with no formal training in broadcasting, began her career there by joining a pool of announcers on Singapore’s national radio and TV station. Lee Lin came to Australia in 1980, working as an announcer on ABC radio stations in Newcastle and Darwin. She began working at SBS in the subtitling unit, providing English subtitles to Chinese language films, before becoming a weekend newsreader in the early 1990s. Lee Lin’s fashion sense is well-known and in 2003 she began hosting Fashionista, a ten-minute ‘fashion newsflash’ that quickly grew to become a surprise hit. Lee Lin doesn’t count her penchant for dressing up as a love, more a mania. She says it’s a condition she was born with and hence, it’s second nature.”

Ok so i don’t know how many of you saw my embroidery set from last year showing women in film statistics, but to tie in with International Women’s day over on Screenqueens and the learning I’ve done in the past year, I’ve added a couple more.

History is not a long series of centuries in which men did all the interesting/important things and women stayed home and twiddled their thumbs in between pushing out babies, making soup and dying in childbirth.

History is actually a long series of centuries of men writing down what they thought was important and interesting, and FORGETTING TO WRITE ABOUT WOMEN. It’s also a long series of centuries of women’s work and women’s writing being actively denigrated by men. Writings were destroyed, contributions were downplayed, and women were actively oppressed against, absolutely.

But the forgetting part is vitally important. Most historians and other writers of what we now consider “primary sources” simply didn’t think about women and their contribution to society. They took it for granted, except when that contribution or its lack directly affected men.

This does not in any way mean that the female contribution to society was in fact less interesting or important, or complicated, simply that history—the process of writing down and preserving of the facts, not the facts/events themselves—was looking the other way.

I actually recommend the entire post, especially if you like history or fantasy or writing.
