More Time With Mom Has Little to No Effect on Children’s Well-Being » Sociological Images | Herstory | Scoop.it

The driving force behind all this focused time is the idea that it’s good for kids. That’s why parents often feel guilty if they can’t find the time or even go so far as to quit their full-time jobs to make more time.

This assumption, however, isn’t bearing out in the science, at least not for mothers’ time.

Madame C.J. Walker History

Madame C.J. Walker History | Herstory | Scoop.it
Madame C.J. Walker was America’s first self-made female millionaire. She amassed her fortune through hard work, innovative ideas, and a fierce dedication to her craft and her people. Contrary to most historical accounts, Madame C.J. Walker did not invent the pressing comb. Per her own words, Madame Walker started the “hair-growing” business, borne out her desire to remedy her own hair loss.

In 1910 Madame C.J. Walker moved her ever expanding “Special Correspondence Course” business, founded on her System of Beauty Culture, to

Who Farts? And Who Cares?

Who Farts? And Who Cares? | Herstory | Scoop.it

Sociologists Martin Weinberg and Colin Williams wanted to know. They and their team interviewed 172 college students about their habits and concerns about farting and pooping. They published their results in an article called Fecal Matters. They discovered that everybody farts and everybody cares, but not everyone cares all the time or equally.


They separated their results by gender and sexual orientation. When they asked people if they were worried that the hearer would “feel disgust,” heterosexual women were most likely to agree and heterosexual men the least, with non-heterosexual men and women in the middle, but flipped such that men were more worried than women.

Annie Edson Taylor, the 1st person to go over Niagara Falls in a barrel & live to tell the tale | Herstory | Scoop.it

Annie Edson Taylor, on her 63rd birthday in 1901, became the first person to go over Niagara Falls in a barrel and live to tell the tale. Struggling financially after her husband was killed in the Civil War, she performed the stunt in the hopes of gaining fame and the riches that would come with it. While her plunge did attract media attention, it didn’t yield the wealth she had hoped for and legend goes that her manager ran off with her barrel.

10 Badass Sikh Women in History

10 Badass Sikh Women in History | Herstory | Scoop.it

In India, women of the Sikh faith have fought, ruled, taught and served for centuries. They have managed organizations, guided communities and led revolts. These accomplishments are admirable in their own right, and they are even more impressive when viewed in the context of the intense patriarchy and cultural misogyny against which these women were working.
