This week we're celebrating International Women's Day by sharing the lives of some AMAZING women you may have never heard of... We explore the lives of: Emma Hutchinson, a self-taught butterfly expert; Mary Barker, the elusive Lady Whistledown of the Wordsworth Circle; Emily Williamson, the best gal a feathered friend could ask for; and Evatima Tardo – the woman who could literally feel no pain! And WOW did she put her body to the test...
