FEMINIST FRIDAY

Annie Oakley’s birthday was celebrated on August 13.  When I read the biography about her that was written to celebrate her birthday I was very moved by how this woman used what talents were available to her and cultivated those talents to lift herself out of poverty and have a life of her own making.   800 more words
