Once upon a time there was a little Polish girl who wanted to be a princess. That little girl grew up. Instead of a princess, she became a lesbian webcomic author, feminist, and physical anthropologist in training.
This is her blog.
On it you can expect to find many different things. Sometimes you'll find rants on subjects she cares about, like gender equality, gay rights, or women's positions in the Middle East. Sometimes you'll find art she has drawn. But mostly you will find pretty things that she finds aesthetically pleasing, anything from Bollywood to Marie Antoinette. Enjoy!
Niczka = abbreviation of "Księżniczka," Polish language for "Princess".
Imam Du Shuzheng rebelled against her family more than 50 years ago to become a female imam in China. She has trained more than 70 women to become imams, but now there are few girls who want to enter the profession because of its low pay. Chinese Muslims have an age old tradition of female imams and female-only mosques run by women for women as spiritual, social, and charitable centers. Hat tip to zuleikha for reminding me again of this amazing phenomenon of women masjids in China. You can learn more on this HERE.

Fluttershy is light-skinned and wearing a pink chador with flowers printed on the top, and beneath it her hair is pulled back and covered in a yellow headscarf. She’s blushing lightly. Twilight is dark-skinned, carrying a bunch of books, and wearing a lavender v neck over a white collared shirt, with her dark blue-purple-pink hair pulled up into two high pigtails, and she’s smiling a giant grin. They both look cheerful and comfortable.]
