I don’t know about you, but Women’s History Month has gotten off to a rocky start for me.

For example, it was disheartening earlier this week to read the sad news that political activist and book artist, Suze Rotolo, had passed away.  Although the full-length obituary by William Grimes that appeared in the New York Times was a wide-ranging and sensitive account of what sounds like a life well-lived, the title of the condensed version that appeared on the Arts Beat blog simply read, ” Suze Rotolo, Muse and Girlfriend to Bob Dylan, Dies at 67.”
