A place to ask questions, connect with others, and stay in the know
Putting the Trivia Tower together for Women's History Month was TOUGH. We gave it our best shot, but have no doubt that we left some great women off the questions. Who did we miss that has impacted your life? Could be someone personal, professional, historical? We want to know!
Henrietta Lacks was an African-American woman whose cancer cells are the source of the HeLa cell line, the first immortalized human cell line and one of the most important cell lines in medical research. Great book about her here.
@Nicole Milliken - I came to say the same - that book was so eye-opening, it was hard to put down.
@Emily Kammerer Wasn't that story just so facinating?! Loved it.
Aung San Suu Kyi - was under house arrest from 1989 to 1995 and could have been freed, and back with her family. Still, she refused to leave Myanmar until the government changed, and prisoners were freed. There is much to her story. I look at her determination and what she sacrificed and that is inspiring to me.
1991 Nobel Peace Prize - one bit of information many might know about Suu Kyi.
Amelia Earhart was an inspiration to women in aviation. She was the 2nd person to fly solo (nonstop) across the Atlantic, among many other accomplishments.
Juidth Love Cohen. Among her other accomplishments, she helped rescue the astronauts of Apollo 13. She was a NASA engineer who helped create the abort guidance system that rescued the Apollo 13 astronauts. Prior to that, while pregnant, she went to work at NASA one day, went to the hospital because she began labor, but brought along a printout of something she was working on. She found the solution while at the hospital, phoned it in, then gave birth. That baby, Jack Black.
Whoa! All of that is amazing. I had no idea about the Jack Black connection.
Great to have such a Quiz. Yes, there were a number of other Great Women who set great examples with their intelligence, bravery & activism."Sarojini Naidu" a poet & political activist was one such pearl in Indian history. Another one was "Indira Gandhi," a strong women who emerged as a powerful leader from 1960s until 80s.
