WOW2: Women Pioneers of June and Events in Our History

“You look ridiculous if you dance. You look ridiculous if you don’t dance. So might as well dance.” —Gertrude Stein

WOW2 is a four times a month sister blog to This week in the war on women. This edition covers women pioneers and the events of From June 16 to June 23.

The Next WOW2 Edition will display
Saturday, June 25, 2022.


The goal of WOW2 is to discover and honor accomplished women, including those who have been ignored or marginalized in most history books, and to mark moments in women’s history. It also serves as a reference archive on women’s history. There are so many more phenomenal women than I ever dreamed of finding, and too often their stories are almost unknown even to feminists and scholars.

These pioneers have much to teach us about perseverance in the face of overwhelming odds. I hope you find as much inspiration as I do in reclaiming our past..


June is Gay and Lesbian Pride Month

aka LGBTQ+ Pride Month

“It doesn’t take any compromise to give people their rights…it doesn’t take money to respect the individual. It doesn’t take any political agreement to give people freedom. It does not take an investigation to suppress repression. – Harvey Milk
