Women’s Day

From Sacagawea to Amelia Earhart we all have a hero to celebrate this International  Women’s Day, March eighth.  Nellie Bly made a trip around the world in seventy-two days.  Mildred (Babe) Didrikson, an Olympic athlete with talent as diverse as her personality, is most known for her track and field, golf, and basketball accomplishments.  Valentina Tereshkova, the first female to fly in space, worked hard to educate herself while simultaneously helping to support her family.  Junko Tabei, the first woman to summit Mount Everest, started climbing at the age of ten and went on to form a climbing club for women.  So women, go out there and do what you’ve always wanted to do.  The only person holding you back is you.
