in Celtic mythology, Arduinna (also Arduina, Arduinnae or Arduinne) was the eponymous goddess of the Ardennes Forest and region, represented as a huntress riding a boar (primarily in the present-day regions of Belgium and Luxembourg). Her cult originated in what is today known as Ardennes, a region of Belgium, Luxembourg and France. She was later assimilated into the Gallo-Roman mythology as the goddess Diana.
One woman who has inspired me is Joy Ladin. She is a professor, a writer, a poet, a trans* person, and a genuinely kind person.
Simone Bells. A state house representative (D), she is the first openly gay African American woman in both houses. She graduated from Agnes Scott as a Woodruff Scholar (someone,generally older, who comes back to school to get their BA). She spends her time kicking ass and taking no shit in the anti abortion house we’ve got going on today
