For International Women's Day, I attempted to make homemade chocolate chip cookies like scores of women who have come before me... and frankly currently populate the planet. >.> I failed.

Well, I failed to begin with. Mind you, this wasn't my first time to bake cookies, but I've only done it a handful of times. At first, we didn't have all the ingredients (srsly, what happened to that vanilla extract??) and I had to wait a few hours before being able to drive. (Which means I fell asleep while waiting.) Then I finally had all the stuff...and I mixed it in the wrong order. ANYway, the cookies are finally finished, and they are indeed tasty. I'm sure it was a woman who came up with that recipe, so thank you, whoever you were: the world is a much more incredible place with chocolate chip cookies. :D

I was highly tempted by the International Women's Day fanfic meme going around, I wasn't in a mood for fictional writing today. Instead, I decided to look up some history stuffs regarding women in general. :) Mom and I discussed a lot of it; it evoked some interesting differences of opinion. I hope you find something interesting below...
