March / April 2019: Espionage & Sleuthing

Spies have existed since the world began. Humans create conflict. People take sides. To win, one must undercut the other. Thus, espionage is born. It forms the basis of many popular franchises, from the Borne movies to James Bond. From back alley dealings in Tudor times to Russian informants in the Cold War, fictional and historical figures have learned suspicion.

In this issue of Femnista, we explore the spies and sleuths who made an impression. We hope you will find old favorites… and new fascinations.

  1. I LOVE that you chose TURN for the banner because I love that show. I was actually wishing I could write this month’s article about it, but I do love Agent Carter so yeah. πŸ™‚ But it’s definitely a great spy show!


    1. My article wound up more about the historical figures than TURN, but hopefully you will still enjoy it. πŸ™‚

      I have to admit, I do not like TURN for a variety of reasons, but the main one is that as an amateur historian, them turning a famous abolitionist into a sociopath for dramatic effect makes my blood boil. They should have invented a villain if they wanted a sociopath and not used John Simcoe’s name.


      1. Oh, I figured your article would be about the historical figures. πŸ™‚

        I can see how that would be a fly in the ointment, so to speak. I feel like I need to read stuff from Simcoe’s POV, just to get a balanced picture.
