Paris Commune


















This woman smoking a cigar looks just like Cathy Searles, a former co-worker in North Carolina. Yes, women can vote. Yes, women can fight. And now, in Argentina, women can marry other women. Change comes in fits and starts, eh?  

Above poster picked up at the main Northwestern University library in the late 1990s. They still had some on hand from their 1975 Paris Commune 1871 display. I wonder if they still have any left?

Today's Rune: Protection.

Speaking of "women can vote," have you seen the movie, "Iron Jawed Angels?" I've heard much about it. Still have to bring it home for a watch one of these days...

Women can vote? When did that happen? Did I sleep through that? ;)

Chuckles. I definitely want to see that. Alice Paul rocks!

The fashions and customs of the day were hideous, late Victorian/Edwardian. It was definitely time for social change in more ways than one.

茜茜知道他有了外遇
他變得春風滿面,嘴裡總是哼著歌曲
他開始變得有耐心聽她說話、會買禮物給她、甚至帶她出遊
茜茜知道這是因為他對外遇有愧疚
她沒有揭穿丈夫的外遇,甚至享受這樣的生活
茜茜偷偷的跟姐妹滔說:感謝老公的外遇帶來更美好的夫妻生活!

明知道他有婚姻,筱蝶還是陷進去了
他告訴筱蝶,不是不願意離婚
只是孩子還小,他不忍心孩子這麼小就面臨父母離婚的難題
他告訴筱蝶,他有多麼愛她
他多想馬上離婚光明正大和她在一起
他告訴筱蝶,她值得更好的人,但是他捨不得放手
只要給他兩年時間,他就會馬上離婚
多麼動聽的話,為了他的承諾,筱蝶甘心傻等
一心等對方離婚、一心想要成為他的太太
然而當兩年的時間過去了
男人還是沒有離婚
他淡淡的對筱蝶說:我配不上妳,所以我要放妳自由!
