    Oh let me guess!! Is it Lyudmila Pavlichenko?!?!?!?!

  • Maus Merryjest

    I love this series- any chance we’ll see Ada Lovelace, Princess of Parallelograms, anytime soon? Or George Sand? Or even Maddalena Casulana?

    I’ll shut up now :p

  • Jason Porath

    One of those three is in the book. :)

    And sadly, “Princess of Parallelograms” was a phrase coined by Lord Byron to describe Ada’s mom, not Ada herself.

  • Maus Merryjest

    True. I figured that since her mother would have graduated to queen, Ada would be the next princess in line :l

  • Janet Coburn

    Did you run across Woody Guthrie’s song about her? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SHKjOl9ocR0

    Check the footnotes, it’s linked.

    The movie is available in Amazon Video in Germany, in German and Russian. It was advertised as one of ten (?) movies that could be rented for 99 cent in May, that’s how I found it. I liked the movie, it seems to be quite close to the known facts, as they are depicted here as well.

    I stumbled across this story in my Facebook feed and decided to pull it up at work and read it. Needless to say I have just spent roughly 3 hours reading random RP stories. I have so many comments but I will summarize into just one. Thank you! I know this site has to be so time consuming for you and so grueling but it is AMAZING work and I am so pumped to read about these BAMF women of history. You have compiled their stories into exciting, informative, and not dull narratives. Your artwork is gorgeous and I LOVE your art notes to help show the subtleties you included that referenced the stories. This is my new favorite thing and I cannot wait to share with others. Please keep up the good work; and consider setting up a paypal tip page so we can help to support you, especially since you have graciously not added pestering ads.

    Hi
    This was my first RP story. I read it yesterday.
    And now I’m literally hooked onto your blog.

    These stories are not just stories, but inspirations, especially to a young woman like me who is struggling to get herself taken seriously (anything radical I say is brushed off by saying I sound “too feminist”). It gives me hope that if these women managed to be badasses in their own time, there is hope for me as well.

    Please continue with these wonderful stories. I will be waiting for more.

    PS: As a historical figure, Rani Lakshmibai from my country India was a thorough badass, and so was Razia Sultan. It’d be lovely to see their depiction by you.

  • Jason Porath

    One is on the list, the other is in the book. :)

  • Jason Porath

    It’s part of the plan for when I get a sec (and am not having free time eaten by going to weddings). In the meantime, keep an eye out for the book, coming out October 25 in the States!

  • Anvitii Rai

    Oh! Wonderful :)

  • Марія Дмитрієва

    She was not Russian, She was Ukrainian.

  • Jason Porath

    Yes – a fact I mention explicitly in the entry.

  • Марія Дмитрієва

    didn’t see it.
    way too used to foreigners calling everyone Ukrainian Russian and the Soviet Union Russia.

  • Schadenfreude

    I was wondering if you would do a post on Sappho…

    “Do you use face powder?”
    “Do you curl your hair?”
    “Aren’t you worried your uniform makes you look fat?”

    How dare they ask Pavlichenko these questions? How. Dare. They.

    Anyways, what a great series. Definitely following.

    Thank you for the post! It was such a funny moment when I started to think about feminism earlier today, and I found this blog site now. This is not to assume your blog is all about feminism, but it was an interesting connection for me. I learnt something new and really valuable! :)

    Yeah, Ada would be more “Princess of Algorithms” I’d reckon :D. Awesome one, as a colleague I find her writings really stunning for the amount of sheer vision they demonstrate (though she already has ample comic book coverage in the amazing “The Thrilling Adventures of Lovelace & Babbage”).
