Nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world

March is Women’s History month (in the US).

This is a series of posts about women who have made an impression on me.


Anne-FrankAnne Frank never had the chance to become a woman. But what she wrote as a young lady brought history to life.  Her book did what textbooks never could. Anne’s voice could have been and still could be any thirteen-year-old girl’s voice.

My mother gave me a copy of Diary of a Young Girl when I was thirteen. I have never forgotten Anne’s story. I think that’s the point.

Anne Frank died in Bergen-Belsen less than one month before my grandfather drove a tank through its gates.





i make squee noises when you tell me stuff.
