Dutch Feminist Fun Facts

I'm still working on my "where are all the feminists in de Nederlands" internets project and I came across an interesting factoid. DID YOU KNOW that Vincet van Gogh's youngest sister, Wilemina (aka Wil), was a profession nurse and was part of the committee for the national exhibit of women's work, raising over 20,000 Guilders for the project? Her life went pear shaped afterward, but it's an interesting fact none the less. Right?
