Rest in peace singer, Lesley Gore ( May 2, 1946 – February 16, 2015) who shined through with her hit single “You Don’t Owe Me” and “It’s My Party.” Thank you for being a feminist and singing such a strong anthem that inspired others. “She was a wonderful human being — caring, giving, a great feminist, great woman, great human being, great humanitarian,” her partner of 33 years, jewelry designer Lois Sasson, told AP.
Happy Birthday Elizabeth Cady Stanton. You are 200 years young! Born on November 12, 1815, you were the mother of the suffragist movement and a pioneer for all women’s rights. You’re great but I have to wonder what you spent all your birthday wishes on cuz we’re still fighting for some of the same damn things you were!
