Alice Salomon (1872-1948) was an educator and activist who was a foundational figure in the thriving field of social work that exists today. While motherhood can take many forms, to mother is to usher forth new generations through care, work and imagination.

All of the women featured this month were dedicated to the survival of children in their work and to imagining better futures for the next generation.History classes can get a bad rap, and sometimes for good reason.

Mary Queen of Scots is one of the most written about women in history. We think we know her well – but here's a new account that re-interprets her life from the point of view of the textiles she wore and the embroideries she stitched. It casts a completely different light on her difficult existence and brings her fully into focus as a living, breathing human being. Here is a renaissance queen displaying her power in violet taffeta and purple velvet, who wore silver to mourn, black to display her statesmanship, and white for innocence and piety.    The book is Clare Hunter's Embroidering Her Truth, Mary Queen of Scots and the Language of Power, and it is Haptic & Hue's choice for our Book of the Year 2022. In this special end-of-year episode, Jo talks at length to Clare about her research and what it told her about Mary. It sets Mary in context both as a consumer of elite textiles and also as an embroiderer during her long captivity. At her death, Mary left over 300 embroideries, many of which can still be seen both in Scotland and England, which she used to tell her own story. They give us an insight into her state of mind and the messages she was trying to convey to the outside world.    You can find a full script of this podcast, pictures, links and show-notes at www.hapticandhue.com/listen. Embroidering Her Truth, Mary Queen of Scots and the Language of Power can be bought in the Haptic & Hue UK bookshop. Haptic & Hue earns a small commission on this at no extra cost to you.

About Halle Eavelyn: Featured in Time Magazine and USA Today and Good Morning America, Halle is a Transformational Wealth Coach, speaker, and writer who helps women clear their old patterns and beliefs so they can call in the financial power that brings freedom. Clearing the past experience of money makes it possible for her clients to cross the bridge to money's future, which Halle sees in Decentralized Finance and cryptocurrency. Drawing on over 30 years of business experience in software, real estate, film production, and travel, Halle's work with a variety of intuitive modalities is both deep and extremely fast, with clients experiencing powerful shifts in their thinking, feeling, and behavior regarding wealth.   Her latest programs include Wealth Reclamation and CryptoCurious, and her podcast and YouTube show is Goddess of Crypto.   In this episode, Kim Andryc, Lora Solomon, and Halle Eavelyn discuss: Reclaiming the feminine birthright of wealth.  Why women have a hard time receiving.  Women in history and in crypto.  The evolution of money and how that affected the fall of Rome and the current inflation crisis.    Key Takeaways: It's never about wealth. It's about the blocks that are keeping you from making your money. When you love yourself it is so much easier for everyone around you to love you and it opens the flow of abundance. The feminine principles must occur in order for you to grow your wealth. Because you can't grow your wealth by just giving. If you want to shore up your ability to get wealthy, you must allow your receiving muscles to turn on. We are starting to see time being sped up when it comes to earning money and becoming wealthy.  "What I love about crypto is it's disruptive, it's rebellious, it's inventive, it's creative, and it's all about receiving, so it is feminine in its principles." — Halle Eavelyn   Connect with Halle Eavelyn: Website: https://halleeavelyn.com/  LinkTree: https://linktr.ee/halle.eavelyn  Show: https://halleeavelyn.com/podcasts/  YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCBihhTJ39drfKP4tBSE7xYQ  LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/eavelyn/   Twitter: https://twitter.com/HalleEavelyn  Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/SheTransformed/  Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/halle.eavelyn/    Get Your FREE Gift: The New Energy of Money here!: https://hallemoney.com/  Connect with Sacred Rebellion:  Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/LoraAndKim  Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/sacredrebellionpodcast/ Email Lora:  connect@lorasolomon.com Email Kim: kim@kimandryc.com Show notes by Podcastologist Chelsea Taylor-Sturkie Audio production by Turnkey Podcast Productions.
