Strong Women

"I do not wish women to have power over men; but over themselves."
— Mary Wollstonecraft

Hello ladies! We had such a great time in London. I visited the University I want to make my Phd at next semester and became really excited! Fingers crossed! :) And we went to the National Portrait Gallery, make sure to visit this gallery if you go to London, it's amazing, I had the chance to see the original portraits of some of the women I most admire. Strong women. A visit to remember. How about you? Did you spend a nice weekend?

Glad you had a good time, I love the national Portrait Gallery, went a couple of weeks ago. I think my favourite room is the one of 20th century icons. So many fascinating people.

what amazing portraits. I wish it was still acceptable to hang portraits of yourself in your home :)

Funnily enough I heard that quote just yesterday. I went to my university's annual Mary Wollstonecraft lecture, it was given by Luce Irigaray, and they spoke a little about Wollstonecraft in the introduction.

Hey ... I love your blog! Good luck with your PhD. I'm currently doing my PhD ... I liken a PhD to many of life's experiences (getting married,buying a house, having a baby) - there are ups and dones but in the end it will be worth it!
