These are such great images of women - wonderful diversity. I really appreciate when you provide the uncompressed TIFF version. Thanks so much for taking the time to provide all the pictures on your blog. I know how time consuming it is to do this.

I also have free images on my web site. They can be found at Public Domain Images .

Thanks again for sharing.

i so enjoyed this catalogue of awesome women-- and want to thank you for posting it. just the other day, my sister and i were talking about how tired we are of watching men (go, hillary!), so your blog really cheered me up. so many women do interesting things, brave ingenious things, and never get the visibility they deserve...

THANKS!
