St Joan of Arc

Joan of Arc- another very familiar image. Commander of the entire French army at 17, executed by the British at 19. Famously portayed in film by Ingrid Bergman( mmm) and also Milla Jovovich (mmmm mmm) amongst others.

But when I think of her I don't think of injustice, misogyny, a peculiar soldier girl from France from the history books..

No.. I think of this pop song by OMD from the 80s..

I'm sure Joan would be thrilled

St. Joan is one of my most favorite saints. I always thought she was awesome for the things she did and stood for.
