Women in 2022



As with any minority - women are slowly but surely making strides not in the sense of spiritual goddesses, the return of the feminine, and all of that other airy-fairy stuff - but in the sense of real world issues and how we cope with collapsing societies, mental health issues and more. Lucky is the woman surrounded by friends, coworkers, and family who love, understand, and support her journey.

2022 started off as a very difficult year not just for women but for society in general as we face issues of covid and its ongoing variants, climate change that is increasing exponentially, and an increase in crime and chaos. Woman continue to make statements, seek freedom, recognition, respect and love but with more realistic exceptions about what the future of society holds.

Remaking history: Hand-making 400-year-old corset designs leads to understanding of how they impacted women   PhysOrg - February 21, 2022

Despite these challenges, making historical corsets taught me to think like a tailor, to understand why specific materials or techniques were used and to assess the artisanal making knowledge that we have lost.

Meet the Most Important Jewish Woman in Medieval England   Smithsonian - February 1, 2022

When Licoricia of Winchester, an English moneylender who counted among her clients Henry III and members of his court, was found murdered in her home in 1277, news of her death circulated widely, even reaching Jewish communities in Germany. The level of interest generated by Licoricia's killing reflected her unique position in medieval English society: She was Jewish, she was rich and she was a woman. Now, approximately 745 years after Licoricia's murder - amid a worrying uptick in anti-Semitism across Europe - a statue of the Jewish businesswoman is set to be installed in her home city of Winchester, where organizers hope it will promote tolerance and diversity in today’s society while shedding light on an oft-overlooked chapter in local history, according to a statement.
