The streets should’ve been jammed with millions of grateful women, but the pandemic denies us, and her, that moment. But bow your heads and give thanks for her life and legacy. Godspeed, Ruth Bader Ginsburg. And thank you.

died in 1840; her funeral hatchment hangs at Shibden Hall. 🖤 Thanks to her passion for (& intervening miracles of preservation & discovery) we get to know her — in a way, better than we know many living people. Aren’t we lucky?

Lots of amazing tributes from around the world to Anne Lister, who died on this day in 1840 Anne used the following words in a letter to Mariana, but they seem more than fitting for today “Distance and absence suit both of us less well than ever”

23 Oct 1839: Mariana reminds Anne she's not a fan of not knowing where she is while also sharing why she hasn't written much lately... But then she gives a 'Mrs Priestley style' York news dump bringing Anne (& Adney) up to speed

Anne Lister, June 21 1824 “I always supplicate assistance to enable me to do my duty in that state of life into which it has pleased God to call me, and, humbly trusting in that mercy which endureth forever, I cheerfully look for the things which are to come.”

Having read hundreds of thousands of Anne Lister's words in her diaries, over many years, today I came across what I think might her biggest spelling faux pas ever. Reader, I present to you, via Anne's crypt hand: "the Cuntesse de No[e]"
