I found a fun podcast on iTunes called The History Chicks. It’s a series run by two women discussing various female historical figures, and from what I gathered so far it seems to try to portray them in a more objective light (or at least to shed some light on them). There’s only been one podcast so far, and it is about Marie Antionette. If you can’t access podcasts you can go to their website: http://thehistorychicks.com and listen to the discussions there.
It’s not really about women’s health or human rights, but I thought it was interesting.
