'HER' STORY

Historic Battleaxes

Ruth Bader-Ginsburg

Ruth Bader-Ginsburg was just the second woman ever appointed to the United States Supreme Court. Prior to her time as a Supreme Court Justice, she smashed gender norms, studying law at Harvard and Columbia Universities as one of a few women in her class. She was ultimately a valedictorian at Columbia, and she achieved all this while raising children and caring for her sick husband (even doing his law school work, too). Her career in law was largely dedicated to gender equality and women’s rights and in this capacity she argued and won six cases before the US Supreme Court. In her later years she became known as the Notorious RBG, a fitting name for a giant.

Malala Yousafzai

Malala Yousafzai is the youngest ever Nobel laureate, a human rights advocate, and the survivor of a retaliatory assassination attempt. Malala’s determination to attend school against the Pakistani Taliban’s orders made her a target. But following her attempted murder, Malala made an incredible recovery and went on to start the Malala Fund, a nonprofit that advocates for girls’ education. This year she graduated from Oxford University with a degree in Philosphy and Politics and Economics.

Rosa Parks

Rosa Parks gave new meaning to the word “no.” As a Civil Rights activist, she refused to give up her seat on a public bus, sparking the Montgomery bus boycott that lasted for more than a year. The resulting lawsuit eventually found bus segregation to be unconstitutional under the 14th Amendment. Rosa fought alongside Civil Rights leaders, and endured death threats for years after her refusal to move. She became one of the most recognizable faces of the movement, and dedicated herself to what was right and what was not easy.

Madeleine Albright

Madeleine Albright immigrated to the United States in 1948. Her work is renowned - she worked on the National Security Council, was a professor at Georgetown where she also advised Democratic candidates on foreign policy, and she served as President Clinton’s ambassador to the United Nations. In 1997 she became the first female Secretary of State, and that appointment made her the highest ranking woman in the history of the United States government. Madeleine broke barriers in front of the entire world, proving just what women are capable of.

Ida B. Wells

Ida B. Wells was born into enslavement and freed by the Emancipation Proclamation. She dedicated her life to civil and women’s rights. She co-owned the Memphis Free Speech and Headlight newspaper, and in the 1890s her investigative journalism uncovered the horrors of lynching in the United States. That reporting earned her a posthumous Pulitzer Prize special citation in 2020.  Ida was one of the founders of the NAACP and was a prominent Black suffragist at a time when the movement tried to exclude Black women. Ida refused to be denied what was rightfully hers.

Joan of Arc

Joan of Arc was born to a French peasant family in 1412. She was just 18 years old when she fiercely led the French army battling and defeating the English at Orleans during the Hundred Years War. She advised noblemen and ultimately died for her cause - Joan was burned at the stake by the English as a heretic at 19 years old. Twenty years later the charges against her were cleared, and in 1992 she was canonized as a Roman Catholic Saint, a fitting honor for a legendary woman warrior.

Eleanor Roosevelt

Eleanor Roosevelt was a prominent public figure in her own right, and an influential First Lady of the United States. She was a fierce and vocal advocate for civil rights, often contradicting her husband, Franklin Delano Roosevelt. She also urged against prejudice toward Japanese-Americans after Pearl Harbor, and privately opposed her husband’s policy on internment camps. After her time in the White House, she served as the United States’ first delegate to the United Nations and was the first person to chair the UN Commission on Human Rights. Eleanor Roosevelt was a great, unstoppable force.

Harriet Tubman

Born into enslavement in Maryland, Harriet Tubman escaped to Philadelphia and became a famous abolitionist and activist. Throughout her life she made 13 trips into the South to free her family and other enslaved people with her knowledge of the Underground Railroad. When the Civil War started Harriet worked for the Union Army, eventually becoming a scout and a spy. She liberated more than 700 enslaved people in the first woman-led expedition of the war. In the later years of her life, Harriet was active in the women’s suffrage movement. There was nothing Harriet Tubman did not do.

Billie-Jean King

Billie-Jean King is one of the greatest tennis players of all time. She won 39 grand slam titles in her career and famously beat Bobby Riggs in the “Battle of the Sexes” tennis match. Along with her accomplishments on the tennis court, Billie fought for gender equality within the sport. She  campaigned for equal prize money for men and women in games, and as a result of this activism, Billie  founded the Women’s Tennis Association and the Women’s Sports Foundation.
