Happy Kartini Day!


April 21 is declared as Kartini Day in Indonesia.
Kartini is honored as a "pioneer in the emancipation of women".
She fought for women's right to get the same opportunity for schooling as men.
From what I have read so far she was an amazing young women and dies wayyyyyyyyy toooo young!
It is soooo fun to learn new things when no-one is making you!

    First, it's not free. And second, an adult will usually enroll in a course which interests her/him.
