Jackie Mitchell – she’s a boys club blue with a strong purple shimmer that shifts aqua, and iridescent flakes in lavender and pink that shift green, gold, amber, and turquoise.

Jackie Mitchell was one of the first female pitchers in professional baseball history. Pitching for the Chattanooga Lookouts Class AA minor league baseball team! During the exhibition game against the New York Yankees, she struck out Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig in succession when she was 17, baseball commissioner Kenesaw Mountain Landis voided her contract declaring women unfit to play baseball as the game was “too strenuous. Guess they were upset a woman could strike out their best players back to back. She tried to continue playing but eventually retired in 1937 at the age of 23  furious at being used as a side show attraction being asked to pitch while riding a donkey. The end of a promising career all because she was a woman!! Jackie Mitchell is a Woman Done Wrong, we honor and thank you!

Description

This is our annual Valentines collection. If you’ve been with us a while you’ll know I HATE valentines, so instead of the typical valentines day collection. We give a spotlight to incredible women that have been done wrong throughout literature, history, music, and current events. So this is our Valentine to Women Done Wrong. I’m including a small write up of how they were done wrong, below the polish description. Feel free to skip it. There’s no quiz 😉
