Grattis på födelsedagen Nadezjda Krupskaja  född 26 februari 1869, sovjetisk politiker och en ofta bortglömd men likväl viktig person för filmens historia.
Krupskaja blev tidigt kommunist och arbetade mer eller mindre dygnet runt för det bolsjevikiska partiet. Som sekreterare i centralkommittén (partiets högst beslutande organ) arrangerade hon möten, hade hand om korrespondens och diarieföring. Det sägs att hon i sitt rum hade en liten kamin som ständigt glödde av alla hemliga brev och dokument hon brände. Efter revolutionen 1917 då Ryssland blev Sovjetunionen blev Krupskaja ledamot av utbildningskommissionen där hon utvecklade skolsystemet liksom dess censur och styrning, biblioteksverksamheten och Komosol, kommunistpartiets ungdomsförbund. Det är också nu hon blir huvudansvarig för det som ofta glöms bort i historieböckerna - nämligen den sovjetiska filmen. Tidigt insåg  Sovjets ledare att film var ett bra sätt att sprida sitt budskap i det geografiskt stora Sovjetunionen. Filmen förstatligades och Krupskaja blev huvudansvarig för dess utveckling och spridning. Eftersom det inte fanns mycket att bygga på (de filmskapare som fanns flydde under revolutionen) fick Krupskaja bygga upp det från grunden. Hon startade bland annat världens första filmskola, VGIK, som kom att samla och utbilda vad som kommit att bli de största namnen i filmhistorien. Under Krupskajas ledning skapades montagefilmen och filmen som medium kom att förädlas, förbättras och bli den konstform som det fortfarande är idag.

Krupskaja var gift med Vladimir Lenin, troligtvis en relation som byggde mer på politiska mål än på kärlek. Mycket av hennes arbete har tillskrivits honom, och även om man kan vara kritisk till mycket av det hon och hennes partikamrater gjorde måste hennes roll i filmens historia lyftas fram på samma sätt som andra av tidens manliga filmskapares arbete (som även de ofta har en minst sagt problematisk politisk syn, som exempelvis den amerikanske regissören D. W. Griffith.) (🇬🇧👇) #filmhistoria #kvinnohistoria #womeninfilm 1458763482714386749_3036229228

Explore danaorkideh's Instagram Atossa, (Elamite Udusana) the daughter of Cyrus the Great, Achamenian empress and wife of two Achamenian kings, Cambyses and Darius and mother of Xerxes is the most prominent lady in the history of ancient Iran. There isn't much information about her life, except that she has witnessed the reign of the four first Achamenian kings and she lived from 550 BC to 475 BC and probably was a sister of the Persian king Cambyses II and she gave the birth of four sons. 
Atossa married Darius I during 522 BC after he, with the help of the nobleman Otanes, defeated the followers of a man claiming to be the younger brother of Cambyses II. The decision was not only to his advantage politically, but the children who would be born to her would be marked for the blood of a monarchial origin flowing in their veins. 
There were also stories about whenever she was to be first mentioned in history of having breast cancer or not, this could be as true as highly doubtful, because again so much history information about the women during Achamenian empire has been lost or forgotten. But according to the ancient Greek Historian Herodotus, Atossa had a Greek servant who also was a phycisian, and he was the one who tried to perform surgery against the lump on her chest. 
Art: I used reference materials, based on how she probably would look like back in days, but I also added her father Cyrus the Great, founder of Achaemenid Empire (actually in Persian, we would say Koroush) at the left and behind him, the lion which was a Achaemenid symbol and at the right, her husband and Koroush's son Darius I. On her veil, I added the Koroush's famous Cylinder that you now can see on British Museum, London.

Explore slin_k_polymath's Instagram #BlackHistoryMonth Raye Jean Jordan Montague was an internationally registered professional engineer (RPE) with the U.S. Navy who is credited with the first computer-generated rough draft of a U.S. naval ship. The U.S. Navy’s first female program manager of ships (PMS-309), Information Systems Improvement Program, she held a civilian equivalent rank of captain.

In 1956, Montague began her career with the navy at the old David Taylor Model Basin (now the Naval Surface Warfare Center) in Carderock, Maryland, as a digital computer systems operator. She later advanced to the position of computer systems analyst at the Naval Ship Engineering Center and served as the program director for the Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) Integrated Design, Manufacturing, and Maintenance Program as well as the division head for the Computer-Aided Design and Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAD/CAM) Program. On January 22, 1984, she accepted the newly created position of deputy program manager of the navy’s Information Systems Improvement Program.

Montague’s career spans the development of computer technologies, from the UNIVAC I, the world’s first commercially available computer, down to modern computers. She successfully revised the first automated system for selecting and printing ship specifications and produced the first draft for the FFG-7 frigate ( the Oliver Hazard Perry–class, or Perry-class, ship) in eighteen hours. This was the first ship designed by computer.

In 1972, Montague was awarded the U.S. Navy’s Meritorious Civilian Service Award, the navy’s third-highest honorary award. She was the first female professional engineer to receive the Society of Manufacturing Engineers Achievement Award (1978) and the National Computer Graphics Association Award for the Advancement of Computer Graphics (1988). She has also received a host of other honors from military branches, industry, and academia. Montague worked on the USS Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN-69) and the navy’s first landing craft helicopter-assault ship (LHA). The last project with which she was affiliated was the Seawolf-class submarine (SSN-21).

Explore haggelins's Instagram Grattis på födelsedagen Rajini Thiranagama, född 23 februari 1954 i Jaffna, Sri Lanka, människorättsaktivist, feminist och läkare. Thiranagama tillhörde folkgruppen tamilerna, en minioritetsgrupp på Sri Lanka som länge varit diskriminerade av det singalesiska styret. Under 1970-talet blev situationen värre med ett konservativ rasistiskt styre på Sri Lanka och som en reaktion bildades flera grupper som började strida för tamilernas rättigheter. Situationen ledde snart till ett blodigt inbördeskrig. Thiranagama gick med i en av dessa tamilska rättighetsgrupper, "Tamilska befrielsetigrarna". Hon arbetade för gruppen som läkare och tog hand om de som sårades i kriget. Men med tiden kom Tamilska tigrarna att använda allt grymmare metoder och under 80-talet utvecklades de till en separatistisk terroristgrupp som även började kriga mot andra tamilska grupper för att få fram sina egna intressen. Thiranagama bröt sig loss från tigrarna och bildade tillsammans med andra människorättsaktivister en fredsarbetande grupp och skrev boken "The Broken Palmyra" där hon och medförfattarna beskrev den fruktansvärda konflikt som pågick på Sri Lanka. Hotad och utsatt fortsatte Thiranagama att arbeta för framförallt kvinnor och barn (som alltid är mest utsatta i liknande konflikter), men fem veckor efter att boken kommit ut 1989 mördades hon utanför sitt hem av medlemmar från Tamilska tigrarna. Inbördeskriget på Sri Lanka fortsatte fram till 2009, men även om det officiellt råder fred har bland annat FN kritiserat regeringen för att situationen är instabil, därtill har flera förödande miljökatastrofer drabbat landet.

Explore printbyprint's Instagram THURSDAY our friends at @fluxartfair opens REFRESH at @rushartsgalleries in #Chelsea. ⭐️
Art In FLUX brings uptown downtown at RUSH Gallery with an all-women show for the month of March.  REFRESH curated by Art In FLUX and hosted by RUSH Gallery opens Thursday, February 23, 6:00-9:00PM at 526 West 26th Street, RM 311, NYC. The women in this exhibition were invited to present ideas within Art In FLUX's 2017 curatorial theme of Re-Imagining A City, a yearlong curatorial exploration that examines how the structure of cities affects social justice, using art, play, and community engagement as a catalyst for innovating urban life.  REFRESH presents a women's perspective and their innate compulsion to create safe, peaceful and equitable spaces. As women they seem inclined to address problems by first reflecting inward ... and then projecting outward as a united cohesive force, apparent at the Woman's March and other recent public forums of solidarity. 
Alicia Grullón, Aya Rodriguez-Izumi, Elan, Leslie Jiménez, Rejin Leys, Shani Peters, Sui Park and Suprina each approach the topic in a unique way, some reflecting inward, others directly addressing the current state of affairs, yet all responded in a personal and passionate manner.  The artists present a deep emotional connection to their communities and the propensity to internally absorb the trials and tribulations of family, friends, community and world news, thus needing a momentary escape, a REFRESH button, as reflected in Leslie Jimenez' We've Been Fighting Lately, where an "old" self sits atop a personal bubble... "To be outside and on top of my invisible sacred space...to be present in life... is more than a choice but a responsibility as a woman, mother, and artist." - Leslie Jimenez.  Through their art the artists analyze the disparities, injustices and suffering.  They create environments and experiences that challenge the status quo.  They listen, comfort, embrace, and absorb the pain. They REFRESH and face the world again. 1455323603293615754_1719165828
