New post: What’s Prussia got to do with it? - Today, February 25th marks 68 years since the official end to the Prussian Empire.  What is Prussia you ask?  It was the Empire that built Germany into a major political player in Europe and was the glue that made the German states hold together to become one German Empire.  When World War I came knocking at the doors of Europe, the Prussian Empire was one of the loudest knocking.  By the time the Treaty of Versailles was si... http://ow.ly/2V989S

Ruth Bader Ginsburg credits Dr. Pauli Murray for the hard legal work that brought about one of her most important legal cases, the 1971 case Reed vs Reed. Black, queer, feminist, erased from history: Meet the most... http://ow.ly/2UTFjg
