In too many minds, women’s history starts with the American Suffragettes in the 19th century or even the feminist movement in the 1960s. While I am truly grateful for the Suffragettes and the feminists, women have been making contributions and trying to shape events around them for eons.
It’s the reason we need Women’s History Month and why I am so glad to see the Celebrating Women series on Oh for the Hook of a Book. I am even happier to contribute to it. Today’s post features my article about Queen Mother Bertrada and her efforts to make sure her sons’ sibling rivalry didn’t escalate to civil war.
Check out future posts in the coming days. The lineup includes a great mix of authors and amazing women in history.
