African Gems

An Historical Survey of African Beauty Techniques

By Sophie Adekola

The history of beauty ingredients is one that deserves more attention.

As Ms. Adekola shows, beauty techniques in Africa came about as a result of the ingredients found in specific locations within the continent. How they were applied contributed to the development of cultural identity in different groups, depending on the area.

Read this fascinating journey through ancient African beauty techniques and their applications today.

The Woman's Bible 

A LATE C19TH FEMINIST CONTROVERSY

By Jenna Michelle 

At the end of the nineteenth century in the U.S., the philosophies behind the suffregist movement began to permeate all aspects of modern life, including religion.

One feminist pioneer, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, sought to challenge the typical conversations at the time about women, religion, and their role within the bible. The controversial product — The Woman's Bible — was a collaborative effort, written and edited by many notable women. Despite its impact at the time, it remains largely unknown.
