I am a major fan of Hayao Miyazaki (Japanese filmmaker). He builds these wonderful worlds of magic, fantasy, and whimsy. He reflects a representation of life onto the animated characters that becomes close to a representation of reality. He has created many notable movies and gain awards around the world. His fanbase stretches over the globe and are made up of people from different walks of life. I love his work, but my most favorite creation he has done is Howl’s Moving Castle.
If you open up any history book in America, what do you see dominate the pages? It is photos and listings of white men that ‘shaped’ our present environment, but there is a group of people missing from the history line. It is WOMEN! I know the women in my family were innovators and forces of change, but their efforts can often go over looked. It makes you wonder how many women are left from the story line simply because they weren’t born male. Well, one woman’s organization decided to start telling the stories of how women changed history.
