natalka01 asked: Do you want to upgrade your tags, specifically USSR, by un-lumping almost all Eastern European countries in with Russia? The Ukraine one only has one woman/post, and Ukraine is a country bigger than France. Lovely blog, great description of things you like, and great finds.
(For anyone who doesn’t know, non-US history posts are tagged by country, list here)
The country tags are a little bit loose. I’ve kept the USSR as a tag because the centralized control it exerted was a big part of history, but most posts have the contemporary country name as well (Ukraine, Russia, Latvia, etc). There are a lot of countries I’ve posted very little or nothing about, which is less than ideal. But it comes down to what I know about and what I can easily find. Some countries put more online than others. Sources in English are better for some countries than others, like look at the difference between Wikipedia’s category of French women by occupation and the same section for Ukrainian women (I have issues with Wikipedia). Plus a lot of the French posts are reblogs from the lovely French History.
This is a work in progress of little history posts, but it is hard to make it balanced considering how much more history there is online from some countries when compared to others.
