Today I'm recommending PBS' incredible series on women who make history, Makers.

I'm also shining my feminist heroes spotlight on Frida Kahlo, because she's awesome and because the NYBG is having a big exhibit of her work in the spring/summer. Her work is personal, painful, and powerful. She was unabashedly bisexual and led non-monogamous relationships in a way that was ahead of her time. (Yes, her marriages to Diego Rivera were awful, but that's because he was a turd).
