The Book of Woman’s Power, with an introduction by Ida M Tarbell of The History of the Standard Oil Company fame, is in the Tamiment’s collection with original gilt cover.
The volume includes essays by many famous writers of the day including Olive Schreiner, Friedrich Nietzsche, and even the New York Times.
Tarbell says in the introduction that woman, “no longer stands as a sorry neglected figure, the puppet and the handmaid of man, but a figure of force and light as high as that of her nation and her time.”
Luigi Serafini, Codex Seraphinianus [Franco Maria Ricci], 1981.
Pity me not because the light of day
At close of day no longer walks the sky;
Pity me not for beauties passed away
From field and thicket as the year goes by;
Pity me not the waning of the moon,
Nor that the ebbing tide goes out to sea,
Not that a man’s desire is hushed so soon,
And you no longer look with love on me.
This have I known always: Love is no more
Than the wide blossom which the wind assails,
Than the great tide that treads the shifting shore,
Strewing fresh wreckage gathered in the gales;
Pity me that the heart is slow to learn
What the swift mind beholds at every turn.

a week ago, I got a cast of my belly taken and it’s probably one one of these holding tea lights. It was a symbolic message for us -
igniting a fire in the belly to take further strides with women empowerment in a nurturing environment. I know that you’re well informed of my passion for body positivity and plus size fashion, but I was a feminist way before
can she just get an award or something
Ohmygod dying. Love this!
