There you have it! One more post left! Women's History Month is almost over! 
Who are a few women that you think I should have included? 



  1. I think it's crazy that I knew Lamar from Sampson and Delilah before I knew of any of her scientific contributions! (We are a fan of old movies in our household.) I didn't discover that until a few years ago.

    Great women to shine a light on this week ❤

  2. I knew them all this time. Now, thanks to you, I'll learn more interesting facts about them.

  3. My percentage just went down again but I'm really enjoying reading these post and learning about some really interesting and influential women.

  4. I am ashamed to say I only know Lois & Clark (Superman) ;-)
    Sacagawea sounds like an amazing lady! Thanks for sharing.

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY, dear Stacy!

    1. LOL! Well, all of this post's women are Americans, that's probably why. ;)

      THANK YOU!!!!! :D 41, oh boy..... ;)

  5. I'm LOVING this series! I love learning new things or refreshing my memory. I cannot wait to teach Weewee all of this!!!


I <3 comments!! Thank you so much for taking the time! :)
