Louise MacBean (interview) embroiders portraits of Rebel Women from history and blogs about the women: 168 women so far, with plans to do another 1652. Her Rebel Women Embroidery blog has posts up to October 2016; more recent work is on her Instagram. Women include Tapputi (chemist and perfumer in Ancient Mesopotamia), Cai Wenji (Chinese poet in the Eastern Han Dynasty), Aemilia Hilaria (Roman doctor in Gaul) and Wallada bint al-Mustakfi (eleventh century Andalusian poet). MacBean has also written themed posts, including Game of Thrones, Drag Kings and women with ties to the supernatural. Via Rex Factor podcast.

Very interesting. I wish there was a way to download her spreadsheet of the rebel women list as it contains lots of info I'd like to peruse.
