> Can you name the Nine Heroines.?
I've seen different lists of Nine Worthy Women, the one I use contains:
Deborah, Judith, Esther (Jewish)
Lucretia, Venturia, Boadicia (Classical)
St. Helena, St. Clotilde, St. Elisabeth of Hungary (Christian)
There are several alternatives in each category. St. Birgita is a common
one for the Christian, but I don't like mystics much.

Collegia-type events, as a rule. I suppose I could do it at A&S if it fits
into the scheme of things. Pretty much if I am asked and my time
coordinates, I am happy to teach.
