A Bonnie Blue announcement

Siren School's Headmistress is thrilled to announce the first inductee into its Blue Stocking Society: 

Salonniere Bonnie Ramsburg of Akron, Ohio was voted siren of the year and it's no surprise. With a history of stepping out of her comfort zone to try her hand at new and often challenging siren endeavors, she is an inspiration to many and supportive of all. Congratulations, Bonnie lass!

A bit about the Blue Stockings, aka Bas-Bleu [courtesy of Wikipedia]

The Blue Stockings Society was an informal women's social and educational movement in England in the mid-18th century. The society emphasized education and mutual co-operation ... 
The Society was founded in the early 1750s by Elizabeth MontaguElizabeth Vesey and others as a women's literary discussion group, a revolutionary step away from traditional, non-intellectual, women's activities. They invited various people (both women and men) to attend, including botanist, translator and publisher Benjamin Stillingfleet. One story tells that Stillingfleet was not rich enough to have the proper formal dress, which included black silk stockings, so he attended in everyday blue worstedstockings. The term came to refer to the informal quality of the gatherings and the emphasis on conversation over fashion
