womenshistorymonth1In honor of Women's History Month, let's take a look at some interesting facts about the accomplishments and contributions of women throughout history.

  1. Women were instrumental in the Civil Rights Movement. While men like Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X are often the most recognized leaders of the Civil Rights Movement, women like Rosa Parks, Ella Baker, and Fannie Lou Hamer played crucial roles in organizing protests, boycotts, and voter registration drives.
  2. Women have made significant contributions to science and technology. Ada Lovelace, often considered the world's first computer programmer, wrote the first algorithm intended to be processed by a machine. Rosalind Franklin made key discoveries about the structure of DNA, but her work was largely unrecognized until after her death. And Katherine Johnson, Mary Jackson, and Dorothy Vaughan were mathematicians and engineers at NASA whose work on the early space program was essential.
