We honor the CRAZY and AMAZING Wang Zhenyi. This badass woman was a famous scientist and astronomer during the Qing Dynasty. Born in 1768 in China, at a time when women were largely forbidden from reading, she was self taught in advanced mathematics and astronomy. She was also an accomplished poet, martial artist and archer. She published several ground breaking pieces, including an article proving how equinoxes move. On top of that, she fought passionately for women’s rights. She accomplished all this in a brief life, dying at age 29. Crazy Woman Cellars salutes this force of nature.
