The only competitors in the 1904 Olympic Games women’s archery tournament, held Sept 19-21 in St Louis (also doubled as the US National Championship), were American women. Lida Howell, who dominated the sport for 20 years, swept the gold medals. Emma Cooke (1848-1929) came in second in both individual events, coming from the Potomac Archers club. Eliza Peyton Pollack (1840-1919, pictured above) took the bronze. Pollack and Howell both competed in the Cincinnati Archers Club, and Pollack consistently came in second to Howell during her long career. Pollack and fourth place finisher Emily Woodruff (1846-1916) both had husbands competing on the men’s team. Woodruff also came from the Cincinnati Archers club. Sisters Mabel (1879-1967) and Leonora “Leonie” (1870-1966) Taylor finished respectively 5th and 6th in the individual events.
Leonie received a gold for her participation in the Team Round, along with Howell, Pollack, and Woodruff. [stats from sports-reference.com] #olympics #olympics1900 #womenshistory #archery #olympicarchery #usasweep

Feb 19, 1977 - Manfred Mann's Earth Band hit #1 with their version of Springsteen’s 'Blinded By The Light.’ Rosalynn Carter was First Lady at the time. Mrs. Carter was very involved with her husband’s administration. She attended most cabinet meetings and took careful notes to discuss with her husband later. www.firstladiesman.com #whitehouse #history #whitehouse #flotusnews #flotus #author #authors #authorsofinstagram #america #american #americanhistory #firstlady #firstladies #historian #historical #historybuff #historyclass #publicspeaker #publicspeakers #womenshistory #newyear #womenshistory #womenempowerment #brucespringsteen #manfredmannsearthband #blindedbythelight #rosalynncarter #jimmycarter #cabinetmeeting #cabinetmeetings #presidential

If you're looking for some #MondayMotivation then settle in for some fierceness by Yaa Asantewaa. After King Prempeh was exiled by the British colonists, along with Yaa Ansantewaa's brother, the British wished to show their power to the Ashanti people by demanding that a colonial governor be given their sacred Golden Stool to sit on. This was a massive insult as the stool was a symbol of Ashanti power as it transferred the power to each king in a ceremonial crowning. The other rulers entertained the idea but Yaa Asantewaa, as gatekeeper of the Golden Stool, was furious and passionately declared that, if the men were not willing to fight then "we, the women, will". #YaaAsantewaa #herstory #blackhistory #blackherstory #blackmagic #womenshistory

Last night I uploaded a video, spurred on by this book and about a topic very dear to my heart.
In light of the upcoming Women’s History Month, I’m going to be championing books that I feel are here to take a stand. Starting with “Dress Like a Woman” from @abramschronicle out on 27th Feb.
You have the right to wear what you want. But how privileged does that make you? And how did we get here? Who are the women that made this possible for you?
Watch my rant via the link in my bio and find out more about this fantastic book. .

#HappyBirthday to Toni Morrison, the first African American woman to win the Nobel Prize for Literature. She was awarded the prize in 1993 in honor of her entire body of work. Morrison's most famous books are The Bluest Eye, Sula, Song of Solomon, and Jazz. In addition to all of these works, it was Beloved, published in 1987, that put Morrison on the short list. The book was on the best-seller list for 25 weeks. The captivating novel tells the story of Sethe, a freed slave, who is haunted by the ghost of her baby.
