Tumblr could use a lot more feminism. Life could use a lot more feminism, as far as we're concerned. We are living in some scary times, especially if you are a women or person of color. We want you to fight back. So we're bringing you some history and quotes from kick ass women. And our hope is that you will be as inspired as we are. We welcome submissions and ideas.
Woman of The Day: Patty Hearst, is an American newspaper heiress, socialite, actress, kidnap victim, and convicted bank robber. Her kidnapping case is held by many as an example of Stockholm syndrome. The granddaughter of publishing magnate William Randolph Hearst and great-granddaughter of millionaire George Hearst, she gained notoriety in 1974 when, following her kidnapping by the Symbionese Liberation Army (SLA), she ultimately joined her captors in furthering their cause. Apprehended after having taken part in a bank robbery with other SLA members, Hearst was imprisoned for almost two years before her sentence was commuted by President Jimmy Carter. She was later granted a presidential pardon by President Bill Clinton in his last official act before leaving office
