Definition of a BlueStocking: An educated and intellectual woman with excellent feminist qualities.
The name Bluestocking also refers to 'enjoyed society in undress' wink wink.
The BlueStocking Burly-Q was conceived by Bang Bang Von Loola, Lady Ginger Rose, Coco Soleil, and Evalette Bizou under an upraised New Years' toast. Unified by their principles of freedom, beauty, truth, and love, the lovelies determined to create a company of performers who would epitomize the ideals of feminine feminism.
The BlueStocking Society in history: First established in the 18th century, it was the first publicly acknowledged women's club ever known in England! It was a group started by Elizabeth Montagu (nick named Fidget for her fidgety & endless energy), a coal heiress & Elizabeth Vesey (nick named Sylph because of her curvy figure and flirtatious manner) a wealthy English intellectual, who valued interesting and stimulating conversation about anything their hearts desired. Their topics of conversation were usually reserved for 'gentlemen' of the time, such as politics, and various intellectual plights. 'Fidget' and 'Sylph' gave women (and their gentlemen friends) a place to speak their minds freely in a supportive, relaxed 'BlueStocking' environment as equals.
We as the BlueStocking Burly-Q stand by these same beliefs of speaking (or dancing!) your mind in a supportive, loving environment as equals. We choose to dance with our whole hearts and souls, and share our love of any subject, genre, or idea with society as a whole. We want women (and gentlemen) to feel safe and EXCITED to express themselves! We celebrate all individuals and all their individual thoughts and ideas, and are proud to be BlueStockings!
