March is Women’s History Month
Well-behaved women rarely make history.
This International Women’s Day, we’d like to honor some brave, brilliant ladies who defied the odds and turned history into herstory. Get to know them below!
Shirley Chisholm (1924-2005)
Shirley was elected as the first African-American Congresswoman in 1968, going on to represent New York’s 12th congressional district for seven terms. In 1972, she became the first black major-party candidate to run for President of the United States. She was also the first woman to run for the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination. Though she lost her bid, she was able to pave the way for women and African Americans in politics.
Maria Montessori (1870-1952)
Maria Montessori developed educational methods for mentally disabled children and used her findings to create the Montessori education philosophy. She promoted the idea that children can learn more effectively when they are regarded as independent individuals. Through her work, Maria was able to change the face of education.
Nancy Wake (1912-2011)
During World War II, journalist-turned-socialite Nancy Wake led over 7,000 French guerilla fighters against the Nazis, attacking bridges, railway lines, and enemy camps. At one point, she killed a Nazi sentry with her bare hands to prevent him from sounding the alarm during a raid. Nancy’s bravery was lauded by the USA, UK, France, Australia, and New Zealand.
These ladies prove that anything men can do, women can do, too.
