Defying sexism and poor opportunities for young women at every turn, Bly gained   fame and recognition by her distinctly empathetic and critical writing style and her willingness to undergo intense undercover   investigations in order to expose corruption and its effects on the nation’s underprivileged.   Inspiring woman! :)

Lady Edison  If inventors were as revered in the 19th century as they were in the 20th, Beulah Henry (1887-1973) would be famous.

JOHN MUIR, A MAN FOR THE AGES:  He wore many hats in his lifetime. He worked as a farmer, a sheepherder and an inventor. But it was his work as an explorer, a naturalist, a conservationist, an environmentalist and a writer that made him a man for the ages.
