I have thought about what would make a lovely birthday present for you, and I’ve decided that knowledge is the best thing I can offer. So here, check out this badass lady that was also born on July 16th — Evelyn Preer. (Don’t judge me for the wiki link.)
Preer is a fascinating, talented, and very influential in the field of film and film/race relations, which makes her an all-around great woman who might be interesting to study. She’s done a lot in terms of advancing the Civil Rights movement, and her acting is actually pretty fab.
In any case, happy birthday, and I hope you have a wonderful year ahead of you! :)
OH WOW INNA! This is so cool, I didn’t know anything about her! Thank you so so much for the wishes!
Aside from the prostitute thing, Victoria Woodhull did do most of those things in that post.
She’s one of the first leaders of the Women’s Suffrage Movement in the US
Have a very lovely Valentine’s Day, Carolina <3
Yes let’s make a bank and then torment people with credit card commercials hundreds of years in the future.

My sister and I were talking when we managed to stumble upon the topic of unicorns. I burst out laughing because all I could think of was the unicorn that Alexander Hamilton had drawn on his power horn.
Historical Fact: This is exactly how it went down.
“The King Washington selected as his prime minister an ambitious youth, a bastard he had picked up from the army, who in his quest for avarice seduced the monarch with promises of riches and power if he would grant him a bank, the tool of corruption with which he lined his pockets with speculators’ gold. I do not understand the circumstances that led to the affiliation, but I have since understood that Washington kept Hamilton as Zeus kept Ganymede.”
- Sir John Adams, The American Monarchy, Vol. I, pg. 716
