This week as we approach the fabled end of 2020, I share three tales of fascinating and history-making individuals who lived to the beat of their own drum to help inspire as we enter the new year. They boldly challenged the conventions of their times in unusual ways and forged paths in unexpected ways from a whiskey-drinking, cigar-smoking, gun-toting lady who would stop at neither snow nor rain nor heat nor even gloom of night, to finely dressed former slave who made LGBTQ history when being arrested for throwing a party, to a shrewd business woman running a floating empire.
Our bonus patreon story this week is extra in depth and features the story of an incredibly diversely-talented woman who was known for her wild boldness, had single-handedly fought against three men twice and won, and won the King's favor in a precarious situation... twice. To find out more, learn how to support, and take a peek, visit patreon.com/rockettefox.
*Content note: there is the mention of sex, violence, and assault for one of the stories, though nothing explicit or graphic. Just use discretion.
