    Did they all need feminism to achieve what they did or did they just work hard?

    • Curator says:

      Obviously not. Even today we see many successful women who are very anti-feminist. Most successful women got where they did because they did the work to get them there.. They see feminism is not needed for women to be successful when they want and they don’t their success belittled as being due to feminism when it’s not.

      Also, seeing oneself as a victim who is unable to succeed is not the key to succeeding.

    Unknown Leader Help? For Social Studies? I need to find a unknown leader(exp. rosa parks, ghandi, ect,) that many people dont know of and I need to right a story about how they are a leader and how a regular person relates to him/ger.
    Thanks.

      Here’s a list you could take a look at:

      ♦ Nicolas Steno (11 January 1638 – 25 November 1686) was a Danish pioneer in both anatomy and geology.
      ♦ Cleisthenes, the father of Democracy.
      ♦ Elisha Kane (28 February 1820 – 16 February 1857) was a US Navy Officer who was a member of two Arctic expeditions to attempt to rescue (without success) the explorer Sir John Franklin (a British Arctic explorer who vanished while attempting to chart and navigate the Canadian Arctic).
      ♦ Rabban Bar Sauma (c. 1220–1294) is the Marco Polo of the East, and yet is relatively unknown.
      ♦ Mary Anning (21 May 1799 – 9 March 1847) was a British fossil collector, dealer and palaeontologist who became known around the world for a number of important finds she made in the Jurassic age marine fossil beds at Lyme Regis, where she lived. Her work contributed to the fundamental changes in scientific thinking about prehistoric life and the history of the earth that occurred in the early 19th century, and yet she is barely known today, while Darwin has become a household name.
      ♦ The Dahomey Amazons, or Mino, were a Fon (a major West African ethnic and linguistic group in the country of Benin, and southwest Nigeria) all-female military regiment of the Kingdom of Dahomey (now Benin), which lasted until the end of the 19th century. They were so named by Western observers and historians due to their similarity to the semi-mythical Amazons of ancient Anatolia and the Black Sea.
      ♦ Pope Leo the Great: In 452, when the King of the Huns, Attila, invaded Italy and threatened Rome, Pope Leo went to meet him personally to beg him to withdraw. Attila, so impressed by Leo, simply turned around and left.
      ♦ Empress Myeongseong (19 October 1851 – 8 October 1895), also known as Queen Min, was the first official wife of King Gojong, the twenty-sixth king of the Joseon dynasty of Korea. At the age of 16 she was married to the then 15 year old King. But, instead of being the demure queen expected of her, she was assertive and ambitious. She gave up many of the royal functions such as hosting tea parties for the aristocracy, and, instead, read books reserved for men only, teaching herself philosophy, history, science, politics and religion. When her husband took full power (at 22), Queen Min took a very active role in politics, and placed her own family members into high positions, solidifying her power. It was during her so-called rule that Korea began to open to modernization – first with the help of the much despised Japanese (due to forced treaties and threats of war) and later from the West.
