This near-daily newsletter profiles fascinating women from history.

Some of my favorites: Murasaki Shikibu, the world’s first novelist; Annie Edson Taylor, the first person to tumble over Niagara Falls in a barrel; the Wake-Robin Golf Club, once the only club for African-American women golfers in the world; and Storme Delarverie, rumored to have thrown the first punch at the Stonewall Riots.
