Georgia Gilmore was a good witch with a bad bitch's heart. She was a badass cook who sued a bus driver who kicked her off the bus and, as a result, was fired from the white restaurant who employed her. At the urging of Dr. Martin Luther King, she opened a restaurant in her own home. Her restaurant became a meeting place for Dr. King and many other figures in the civil rights movement. She also was responsible for creating The Club from Nowhere, a network of women who sold meals they had cooked at local institutions, games and rallies, in order to raise money for the Montgomery Bus Boycott carpool. The Club From Nowhere raised a rough equivalent of 1200 bucks a week in today's currency, which helped keep the carpool alive for the 381 days the boycott was in effect. Warning! This episode WILL make you hungry.

Episode 80, witches! It’s the spookin’ season! 🎃🔪 This week, @msdeannaelise and @hannahfergesen want to talk to you about the OG Scream Queen: @curtisleejamie ! We all know the name Jamie Lee Curtis. A prolific actress, children's book author, cosplayer, philanthropist, baroness (!), and the daughter of Tony Curtis and Janet Leigh, Jamie Lee got her start as Laurie Strode in John Carpenter's Halloween - a film which launched the trope of the Final Girl, and changed Jamie's life forever. Decades later, Jamie is starring in Knives Out, a campy whodunnit, and her acting career is still going strong, as is her icon status. We love her! • • #goodwitches #badbitches #goodwitchesbadbitches #gwbb #podcast #gwbbpodcast #feminist #feminism #filmhistory #icon #screamqueen #finalgirl #american #halloween #jamieleecurtis #knivesout #johncarpenter #debrahill #witchywednesday #wcw #bossbabe #badasswomen #horror #slasher #lauriestrode ICYMI! Episode 79, witches. This week, we found out Hispanic/Latinx Heritage Month with the incredible Leona Vicario - a major player in the Mexican Revolution. Leona Vicario was a well-educated young woman of nobility who grew up in Spanish colonial Mexico. After beginning a relationship with a revolutionary named Quintana Roo, Leona made it her mission to help Mexico gain Independence - and spent a majority of her fortune funding the revolutionary effort. When Spanish investigators learned of her involvement, she fled, and continued her fight for independence as a boots-on-the-ground revolutionary. Leona was one seriously bad bitch. • • #goodwitches #badbitches #goodwitchesbadbitches #gwbbpodcast #gwbb #podcast #history #herstory #feminist #feminism #mexican #mexicana #mexico #revolutionary #latina #latinx #latinxheritagemonth #hispanic #hispanicheritagemonth #leonavicario #badasswomen #witchywednesday #wcw ICYMI! Episode 78, witches! María Jesús Alvarado Rivera was a Peruvian journalist and feminist at the turn of the 20th century. She was inspired by her own childhood teacher and went on to speak about the importance of full equality for women in Peru. The most incredible thing about Maria was her dedication to achieving full equality for women - not only the vote, which was the primary feminist topic of the time. Later on, she got her message across through her work in the arts and the theater and though she lived long enough to see women achieve the right to vote in Peru, the victory was bittersweet because women's equality is still out of reach today. Maria was a seriously good witch, and we're honored to feature her during Hispanic/Latinx Heritage Month. • • #goodwitches #badbitches #goodwitchesbadbitches #gwbbpodcast #gwbb #podcast #history #herstory #feminist #feminism #peruvian #peru #suffragette #latina #latinx #latinxheritagemonth #hispanic #hispanicheritagemonth #maríajesúsalvaradorivera #badasswomen Episode 77, witches! ICYMI, this week, @hannahfergesen and @msdeannaelise discuss the incredible Carmen Contreras-Bozak. She was the first Puerto Rican woman to go overseas as a codebreaker for the army in WWII. She joined at a time when women’s contributions to the war were not seen as truly military, and they were therefore not entitled to the same benefits as male soldiers — like access to VA hospitals or overseas payment (!!). Carmen was a patriot in the truest sense - a young American woman born in the territory of Puerto Rico who found a life she loved in the mainland, and volunteered without hesitation to defend it. • • #goodwitches #badbitches #gwbb #podcast #womenwhopodcast #feminist #feminism #gwbbpodcast #history #herstory #america #american #puertorico #puertorican #latinxheritagemonth #hispanicheritagemonth #latinx #latina #hispanic #militarywomen #military #ww2 #wwii #wcw #witchywednesday
