On the contrary, one of the ways in which history is manpulated is to excise references to the accomplishments of "others". "History is written by the winners," as the saying goes. So historical facts, like Boedica nearly defeating the Romans, Eleanor of Aquitaine taking her armies on one of the Crusades, Rosalind Franklin's vital work that resulted in the identification of the DNA double Helix for which Watson and Crick received the Nobel Prize all get ignored and continue the bias that only men or only men of a certain group have shaped history. That legacy is alive and well today and so remembering Hypatia DOES help honor women today. It helps provide historical examples for girls to emulate as well as those in contemporary times. Otherwise, we risk as is so often the case, the curse of Santayana. "those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat it."

Sorry to come in the back door, but I just wanted to note that your comment in Eastern Religion was well written and appreciated. Without any implication of suggestion, have you considered a simple 'hi' as an opening journal entry, so that interested folks could return the greeting?
