The following is a response to a post by Roland Clarke for the April 2022 WEP Challenge.

A well-written and educational piece. I have relatives in Lithuania, but the truth is, I know almost nothing about them. We wouldn’t know each other. I am estranged from most of my family. Vivid connections like those depicted in this story are a foreign and fascinating concept to me.

The Night Witches are a source of inspiration for a woman who secretly started identifying as a feminist back in 1973 at eight years old. Women can do anything that men can do and it is tiresome that in the twenty-first century we are still seen as decorations and unpaid labor.
