Outfit Post: Wear a short skirt, stout boots, and carry a revolver

Happy International Women's Day! Title is in honor of one of my fav Irish feminists, Constance Markievicz, who, according to one of the Women's Day speakers I heard today, gave that advice to her fellow Irish suffragettes. She also fought in the Easter Rising, was imprisoned but not sentenced to death because she was female, and complained: "I do wish your lot had the decency to shoot me." Oh, and on top of that she was the first woman elected to Britain's House of Commons (although she didn't take her seat) and helped form Ireland's first Dàil (lower house of Parliament), and fought on the republican side in the Civil War.
