Since it's #internationalwomensday I wanna bring up a big pet peeve about that famous quote, "Well-behaved women seldom make history." The historian who wrote it in 1976 didn't mean it the way we use it. When people slap the phrase on T-shirts and bumper stickers, they use it as a license to be loud and disruptive. Which, fine, shit needs disrupting.
