Hey, welcome :) Gloria. 21. British. Learning to fall in love with the Creator and his people. Here I post about things that inspire me - namely my faith, great quotes, things that inspire adventure and my fashion sense. Enjoy!
"   When I was a student at Cambridge I remember an anthropology professor holding up a picture of a bone with 28 incisions carved in it. “This is often considered to be man’s first attempt at a calendar” she explained. She paused as we dutifully wrote this down. ‘My question to you is this – what man needs to mark 28 days? I would suggest to you that this is woman’s first attempt at a calendar.’

It was a moment that changed my life. In that second I stopped to question almost everything I had been taught about the past. How often had I overlooked women’s contributions?   "
