Hypatia’s death showed much of what the Roman Empire had portrayed during the rise of Christianity as Hypatia was a representation of what Christians believed to be a satanic witch that tried to persuade others to question faith and sway over to science. To the Romans, Hypatia was a heretic and a cancer that needed to be eradicated so on the day of her death, so Christian fanatics took her as an angry mob to a nearby Christian church where she was stripped of her clothes, tortured, and eventually killed. Although some stories of her death are exaggerated at most, it is true that she was killed in a very gruesome manner which showed the evils of the Roman Empire during her time. Hypatia’s works however made it apparent that the questions of mathematics could be solved and simplified to benefit humanity. For this reason, the legacy of Hypatia is and will forever be a great contribution to the advancements mathematics as shown throughout her works.

This angered Catherine, so instead doing nothing, she took a stand and expressed her feelings towards his actions to the emperor himself. She criticized and denounced his harsh treatment of Christians. Maxentius found her efforts amusing, so instead of having her executed, he gathered a group of 50 people, all orators and philosophers summoned to disprove the beliefs of Catherine. During the debate, “Catherine was moved by the power of the Holy Spirit and spoke eloquently in defense of her faith.” Her argument was so inspiring , that she successfully converted several pagans that witnessed her speech to Christianity, who were immediately executed afterwards.
The spectral classes were as follows: O, B, A, F, G, K, M. 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. Cannon was able to work hard enough that people in the scientific community looked past the fact that she was partially deaf and a woman. 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.

At first it was confusing because she talked a lot about Essentrics first and kept saying she would explain it later on in the book. She was hyping the Essentrics program a lot in the beginning saying how thirty minutes a day can help pain, slow aging, heal injuries and so on.

On the other hand the hype of Essentrics was actually worthy because that was her hook in the book. Reading the first couple of pages in the first chapter was interesting and deep explaining in a cellular level how our bodies work.

If I am being honest, I never heard of Susan B. Anthony before this class. Which I find very shameful because she was such a remarkable person and did a lot of women in the United States. Susan B. Anthony was so courageous and ahead of her times.
At the time when Greek women of all classes were only meant to occupy types of work like caring for young children, nursing the sick, and preparing food, there was a woman at Alexandria named Hypatia, daughter of the philosopher Theon, who made such breakthrough in literature and science. Hypatia was one of the last great thinkers of ancient Alexandria and one of the first women to study and teach mathematics, astronomy and philosophy. There is no doubt that Hypatia was a lucky girl to have such a father who refused to impose upon his daughter the traditional role assigned to women and raised her as one would have raised a son in the Greek tradition; by teaching her his own trade. Although her precious contributions in science,
By doing so she lead the way for many female writers and encouraged them to write and make a name for themselves. “O Pioneers!” has many examples of naturalistic thinking throughout. For example in part one, chapter two Cather describes John Bergson’s struggles by saying “ Now, when he had at last struggled out of debt, he was going to die himself. He was only forty-six, and had, of course, counted upon more time.” Also in part two, chapter twelve Alexandra states
He was also an excellent king. Behind Beowulf 's success, there are many women who have helped to advance the story. Most of the women were the king 's wives, only Grendel 's mother was a monster. Unlike other ancient myths, this book is not the main character in many ancient books, and is portrayed as an old wife or little girl.
