I have been featuring #wcw on my social media for months now, and I have now decided to start featuring my #wcw on the blog as well, as not everyone has social media. Woman Crush Wednesday (#wcw) is often a stereotypical babe that is plastered all over the internet on a weekly basis. I’m not fond of social norms, and going against the grain is what I do, so I have decided that my #wcw each week is going to be a woman who is intelligent, a shaker and mover and an overall contributor to society.
This week, I am featuring Beatrix Potter, the writer of one of the most beloved children’s book of all time, The Tale of Peter Rabbit (1902). She was a woman of immense talent, indefatigable spirit, and a generous heart. Although Potter had sold some of her artwork for greetings cards and illustrations in the early 1890s, she devoted most of her energy to the study of natural history – archaeology, geology, entomology and, especially, mycology.
