To all the women who quietly made history.
This reminds me of this:
Finally, and this is important: even those women who weren’t inventors and intellectuals, even those women who really did spend all their lives doing stereotypical “women’s work”—they also built this world. The mundane labor of life is what makes everything else possible. Before you can have scientists and engineers and artists, you have to have a whole bunch of people (and it’s usually women) to hold down the basics: to grow and harvest and cook the food, to provide clothes and shelter, to fetch the firewood and the water, to nurture and nurse, to tend and teach. Every single scrap of civilized inventing and dreaming and thinking rides on top of that foundation. Never forget that.

This is all so true and important, I’m often horrified to see how little value is given to so many important work, I Hate the vicious circle, woman are devalued so jobs that are devalued are given to them, job is made by women, since women are devalued, job is devalued.
I also hate how this capitalist system is driving the world to death because of it’s devaluation of this kind of work.
