A Woman Helped Get Us to the Moon

There is always so much more we can learn about in our world. Women are not always associated with mathematical accomplishments but this was a wonderful tale of one woman who helped write software code for men to walk on the moon. Family and all. A really cool story found here.

Early Feminists

If one reads about English literature and especially from the Regency period, you will see mention of Mary Wollstonecroft as an early spokes person for women. Of course, many of us know her daughter better, Mary Shelley, who wrote Frankenstein.
