New Article Available in the GYR Online Journal

In many cultures, men and women were treated differently at death.

The Cochieans buried their women,
but suspended their men from trees.

The Ghonds buried their women
but cremated their men.

The Bongas buried their men with their faces to the North
their women with their faces to the South.

Obituaries, The Woman’s Movement, & Humor

While researching women’s obituaries recently I came across a very interesting article written for Harper’s Magazine in 1921.

Have you heard of the National Women's Obituary Association?

You'll find the rest of this article from the History Hare in
the Graveyard Rabbit Online Journal.
