From high school textbooks, we all learned about
famous woman’s name who is known as the mother of
traditionally masculine discipline . But, few have heard of
not famous woman’s name , an intrepid, fearless, tenacious woman who historians consider the grandmother of
closely related traditionally masculine discipline , paving the way for millions of future women in
traditionally masculine profession _.
Raised by her
strong female family member , she beat the odds and was the first woman to
significant achievement that would have been impossible without the underpaid and wildly unrecognized labor of people of color .
Facing sexism at every turn, she was not allowed to
verb forbidden unless male or white in the United States. Refusing to accept defeat, she traveled to
foreign country, probably France where she earned her degree in
traditionally masculine subject with honors.
She returned to the United States and became the first
traditionally masculine profession , shattering gender barriers. Inspired from her struggles, she founded the
not famous woman’s last name Institute, which now remains the largest organization that fights for
sadly still topical social and political issues . Today,
state has a holiday dedicated to her memory.
