In Year of 30-day challenges

30 Days of Women's History

For this month's 30-day challenge instead of giving something up, I'm adding something to my daily life. In a flash of inspiration I decided I wanted to research one new woman from history each day. It began on the night of March 1st, when I watched a documentary called Brave Miss World.  Former Miss Israel and Miss World, Linor Abargil became my first women researched. 

I've created an icon on my phone's home screen to a biography.com page listing dozens of women with amazing stories throughout history. Each morning, shortly after waking up, I choose a women I don't know much about and read a short bio on her. 

After five days, here are the women I've learned more about:

1. Linor Abargil- Former Miss World who survived a brutal rape and turned to public speaking on the issue. 

2. Sappho- archaic Greek poet, known as one of the first female writers. 

3. Boudica- Leader of ancient Britons who helped lead rebellions against Roman rule. 

4. Mirabai- 16th century Hindu poet and devotee to Sri Krishna. 

5. Margaret Fuller- 19th century journalist and women's rights activist.

  1. You might find the story of British Red Cross nurse Edith Clavell of interest. Between 1914 and 1915 Clavell helped at least 200 wounded and lost Allied soldiers reunite with their units or escape to England.

    The Germans discovered the escape network in 1915. They arrested Edith Clavell, tried her and sentenced her to death by firing squad. She was the only nurse to suffer that fate during the Great War.
