Her Grace asked:

> 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.

And also:

> Where do teach your classes?

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.
