Shirley began her career as an educator. She was born in a predominantly black neighborhood in Brooklyn, New York, and knew all the truths about being black in the USA.
#2 Tammy Duckworth
It's hard for Tammy to stand in front of the crowd, but she always does it confidently. Duckworth can be called one of the strongest women of our time.
There is more information about Hypatia's tragic death than about her life. Anyway, she was one of the greatest and most talented thinkers of Alexandria.
