s1 e7 — VITORIA and LIN SINIANG: A healer and a warrior walk into a bar‪.‬ Notorious Women

    • Comedy

This week, Miriam tells the story of enslaved woman and healer Vitoria, and Lavetta tells the story of teen peasant turned warrior Lin Siniang.
-----
In this episode, Lavetta introduces concubine turned soldier Lin Siniang (Chinese, 1629–1644), who learned martial arts from her father, and later led an all-female army in battle. Despite her bravery, she was killed in combat at a young age. Next, Miriam explores the life of trans woman healer Vitoria (Africa, 16th century) in Portugal. Vitoria ran a successful prostitution business and was respected for her healing abilities. However, due to societal prejudice, she was arrested and was likely sentenced to the galleys to a life of hard labor, and then executed. In this way, Vitoria is an example of how transgender individuals have existed throughout history and have made significant contributions to their communities, but that societal prejudice and colonization have often led to the erasure and marginalization of diverse gender identities and expressions.
