CALENDAR OF WOA ARTICLES is below
special full-length articles are in "Spotlight"
These materials formerly were housed at Irene Stuber's undelete.org. The "calendar" is based on the 900+ episodes of Women of Achievement and Herstory that Irene Stuber emailed to her subscribers 1992-2002. [NOTE: These materials are archives; Irene Stuber ceased updating them in 2002. If you are researching a contemporary woman, you must supplement with later material. -- liz]
presentation of the biographies and herstory is primarily through 365 daily,
calendar episodes. The articles are arranged so that a specific date may
be selected, or the entire Women of Achievement series can be read sequentially.
The original website note from Irene read:
Irene Stuber (1928-2010), the "grandmother of women's internet activism", did not finish her calendar. Much of it is here, but as time went on, Irene's growing blindness limited her ability to write and code the vast information she had accumulated in her lifetime. On the other hand, can anyone say that anyone's "work" as a human being ever is done? The important part is progress, to preserve and remember the knowledge we already have, so that others can build on our legacies. History is important. To the extent that Irene inspired generations of women activists, she stands with the rest of the "women of achievement" she wanted remembered.
a date is incomplete, please see Irene's text
files. In addition,
occasionally someone contacts us to point out an error here or there, or to quibble
over an entry. We're sorry 'bout that. But we didn't write these pages; we didn't research them, and
we're not in a position to start making substantive changes to archived documents.
In our discretion, however,
we will consider publishing your comment on
the ERRATA page, or
as a stand-alone article. Please contact webadmin at argate.net-- liz]
May is named for Maia, the Roman goddess of spring and growth.
WE MUST NOT FORGET!
Anonymous was a woman: article by Fred R. Shapiro in Yale Magazine. Much literature as well as
well-known quotations originally written by women either have been misattributed to men, or are commonly
assumed to be "anonymous". Examples:
