She faced challenges head on and did not fail to prove people wrong, "It was a significant achievement at the time because she was in the first generation of women of color to break into medical school, fight racism and sexism" (Gray).

Banner “is a graduate of UCLA, with a Master's Degree in European History and a Ph.D. from Columbia University in American history, Lois Banner was a founder of the field of women's history in the 1970s.” I believe Banner was inspired to write about Elizabeth Cady Stanton because she has written many books on the background of women and gender in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

But when the Gilead was made and she was forced to stay home “She stays in her home, but it does not seem to agree with her.” (84).

Annie Jump Cannon’s career ended after forty years, but her work paved the way for women in the scientific community and continues to inspire fellow female scientists.

Annie Cannon is an important woman in the history of science because she was able to overcome sexism and a disability while developing her own revolutionary and important version of stellar classification. Obviously, Annie Cannon’s backstory is important because it can reveal

This shows disloyalty, because if William wanted to marry her, wouldn’t he have saved Kit from the witch trial? Because the book shows a lot of friendship in the story, and how Kit makes her friends, the evidence from the story makes it clear that friendship is a crucial trait, and that friendship supports loyalty. Even though William was a friend with Kit, he still didn’t show loyalty towards Kit, because he wasn’t a true and real friend. He was just a person who wanted to marry Kit, and make decisions for
All the characters make equally great contributions to the development of the regardless of their race and ethnic. There are all kinds of doctors, from African American, white, Hispanic and mixed with different ethnicities. Derek and Meredith’s daughter Zola’s bestfriend is Sophia who is the daughter of Mark Sloan and Kallie Torres. This makes Sophia half Hispanic and half white, while Zola was adopted from Africa.

My focus is on the life, career, inspirations and contributions of Margaret Floy Washburn. Ms. Washburn is known as the first women to have earned her Ph.D. She is the second woman to be elected into the National Academy of Sciences.

One of Bryn Mawr College’s most distinguished alumnae is Emily Greene Balch, who, in 1889, became a member of the school’s first graduating class. In an era in which bachelor’s degrees for women were still a novelty and post-college careers were even more rare, Balch set herself apart by effecting real change on both the local and global scale. Her history stands in direct opposition to the dissenting voices of her time that asserted that women were not worth educating, and her achievements appear no less remarkable today. Born in 1867, Balch grew up in the Jamaica Plain area of Boston. Though she would later convert to Quakerism in 1921, she was heavily influenced by her Unitarian upbringing.
The awards continued to come in 2011 when Rebecca Skloot won the 2011 Audie Award for best Non-Fiction Audiobook, and a Medical Journalists’ Association Open Book Award.

In this book she names a lot of people and it is hard to keep up with all of them, but a couple of people stand out to me. The first person who stood out to me would be her daughter, Deborah.
