What?? It's Women's History Month?!?

What?? It's Women's History Month?!?

Rae Hering

Alright, all you Procrastinators, if you haven’t gotten around to doing anything for Women’s History Month yet, or heck, didn’t even know it was going on, now’s your chance!

(Note: being that this blog post is on the last day of Women’s History Month we can all tell who’s the Biggest Procrastinator of all. Uh…yeah.)

Actually, I’ve been thinking about notable women throughout history a lot lately. Not because it’s the month of March even though, hey, it’s nice to get some yearly recognition for our gender, but the real reason is that I’m working on a concept album inspired by fascinating women from all different time periods and backgrounds whom, quite frankly, I’ve never heard of and maybe you haven’t either!

I’ve written five songs so far and oh my goodness! these women have truly become my muses. They’ve entranced me thoroughly with their triumphant valor, bloodthirsty schemes, charismatic wit and unearthly resilience. Are they perfect examples of what humanity should strive to be? You bet they aren’t! But that’s what makes them so beautifully interesting.

Which leads me to sharing with you this magical wonderland of a website I found in my research, www.rejectedprincesses.com. Expect to find (and I’m quoting the site here): “Women too Awesome, Awful, or Offbeat for Kids’ Movies.” Let me introduce you too:

Creator Jason Porath sums up what he does this way, “I illustrate and wax poetic about interesting legendary women you’ve probably never heard of.” (Got that from his Twitter profile. He also has a Patreon account you need to check out.)

And I’m totally sucked in. The way he writes about these women’s stories is completely engaging and his animation-style images make each come to life. Suffice it to say I have a lot of food for fodder here for my concept album and I hope you dig in, too! Once you get acquainted with a few of these colorful characters you may want to check out his official Rejected Princesses book that just came out late 2016. 

OK folks, Happy Last Day of Women’s History Month and enjoy the good reads!
