I've always wanted to make one, but I was always too busy - until now, when my friend asked me to contribute. Here we go, an Independence-Day zine about Polish historical heroes, but not the ones you may already know. We are not talking about leaders, kings and warriors, we are talking about activists, teachers, feminists, researchers, and people who dared to question the existing order. My share was Tadeusz Boy-Żeleński and Irena Krzywicka:
Irena Krzywicka (1899-1994) - writer, author of "The Memoirs of a Scandalmonger", the most known feminist of the interwar period. Tadeusz Boy-Żeleński (1874-1941), GP, pediatrist, author of translations for the (whole!) canon of French literature into Polish.
Irena and Tadeusz promoted an access to contraception and sexual education and demanded making abortions accessible, in order to emilinate the backstreet abortion industry. They ran the Dispensary for the Conscious Motherhood.
