One of the most interesting women in history (I think) and not really known outside of Ireland, even though the first female MP elected to Westminster!

Regrann from @irishtimesnews - Countess Constance Markievicz: Britain will formally recognise the first female MP elected to Westminster when the Vótáil 100 committee presents a portrait of Countess Constance Markievicz to the speaker of the House of Commons today.
Markievicz became the first female MP (and subsequently TD) when she was elected by voters in the Dublin St Patrick’s constituency in the historic December 1918 British general election.
She also became one of the first female cabinet ministers in the world and was minister for labour in the governments set up by the Dáil between 1919 and 1922.
The committee, organised to mark the 100th anniversary of women in 1918 gaining the right to vote, travels to London on Wednesday to make the presentation.
Chairwoman of the committee, Labour Seanad group leader Ivana Bacik, said it would be a “historic occasion” when the portrait of the abstentionst MP is presented to John Bercow.
“It is the first time that Ms Markievicz will have been formally recognised by the Houses of Parliament in Westminster as the first woman elected as a Member of Parliament in Britain,” she said. #Markievic #irishhistory #britishhistory #herstory #historyasithappens #feminist #100yearsofvotes #trailblazers #womeninhistory

Giving good face, girl! 💋 Porcelain patch box from Charles Gouyn's factory, London, ca. 1749–1760 (V&A).
.
The beauty patch – is there any fashion statement more uniquely 18th century? Described as “one of the greatest examples of cosmetics turning facial flaws into a fashion statement,” beauty patches evolved from bits of fabric meant to cover the scars left by smallpox and popular lead-based makeups, into symbols of wealth, personality and power.
.
Made from expensive fabrics like silk and velvet, beauty patches came in a variety of shapes and sizes, from hearts and stars to crescent moons. Fashionable women carried these beauty staples in lovely bespoke “patch boxes,” such as the one pictured here of a lady’s made-up (and patched-up) face.
.
Wearing a white cap with crimson feather and yellow bow, our Lady of the Patch is fashioned out of porcelain, enamel and gilding, with a hidden looking glass stowed inside (naturally!) 💁🏼‍♀️

“Benim yüzüm hiç gülmedi, bari kızım gülsün” demiş, adımı Sengül koymuş annem. 1935’te Merzifon’da doğmuşum. 1960’ların başıydı İzmir’e göç ettiğimizde. Orada iş çok, dediler. Kocam Fuar’daki Mavi Kelebek gazinosunda şef garsondu. Evden akşamları çıkar, sabaha karşı dönerdi. Gündüzleri uyuduğu için de akşama kadar perdeler kapalı olurdu evde. Ben o gündüz karanlığında yapardım tüm işlerimi. Akşam olup da Cemal işe gidince, açardım kapıları, pencereleri ardına kadar. Gün boyu herkese yarenlik etmiş güneş, bana işte böyle gün yiterken doğardı... ✨

My mother named me Sengül (you smile), because she wanted her daughter to be happy unlike her own unfortunate fate in life. I was born in Merzifon in 1935. It was in early 1960s when we emigrated to Izmir. There is work there, they said. My husband was the headwaiter at the Blue Butterfly Club in the Izmir Fair. He would leave for work in the evening, and return in the wee hours of the morning. Since he slept during the day, the curtains would remain shut in the house. I would do all the housework in darkness. Then the evening would come again, and Cemal would head to work. It was then that I would get to open the doors, the windows. Wide open… The sun that kept everyone company during the day, would thus rise over me only when the day withered away...

We will be packing thousands of products for children in need on August 4th.....but we have to party too!
