This shows her level of intelligence was high.
Arnold Schwarzenegger once said, “In our society, the women who break down barriers are the ones that ignore limits.” Rebecca J. Cole was an ideal embodiment of this quote because of the obstacles she had to overcome to become the second African American female physician in the United States. Rebecca J.

These women fought for what they believed in, which brought Title IX into action. Title IX was signed by President Nixon on June 23, 1972, and it states that schools are required to take a series of steps to ensure equal opportunities for all student athletes. Since Title IX went up it has helped us by having an equal access to higher education, career education, equal access to academia, access to athletics, athletic scholarships for women, and most importantly it has increased self-confidence in girls. Title IX has made huge impact in female participation in sports. The number of college women competing in sports is now nearly five times the pre-Title IX rate.

The amount of supporters that Malala has gotten at the age of 16 is unbelievably surprising.

One way that Malala gained as much support that she did was because of the strength she had to survive this and inform other people about education. When Malala was 11 she had he first interview while in that interview she says how girls also need to go to school. This shows strength because she was standing up for what she thought was right.
I have watched a lot of inspiring movies and I would say that Temple Grandin is the most striking. This movie revolves around a woman named, Temple Grandin, who became successful despite having limitations due to her autism. She graduated as college valedictorian and she also completed her Ph.D. Furthermore, the movie also shows the importance of moral support and understanding to the persons with autism for their consolation and feeling of relief. I commend the movie for effectively showing how a person with autism or disability like Temple Grandin could overcome her limitations and eventually become successful.
Melba overcame various barriers and obstacles to get the proper education she rightfully deserved. No matter the verbal and physical abuse she received, she was still able to keep her head high. They were all taunted, humiliated, and attacked without mercy by the rest of the students at Central High School. I was astonished by the amount of bravery all of the Little Rock Nine had to keep going back to school. Another enjoyable aspect of the book was when Melba described in great detail the life she lived after her experience in Little Rock.
