I wonder if all of these woman could vote, if they would for Hilary. Isn't it time for a Madame President?

I'd heard of Josephine Baker and Nellie Bly in songs, but in Nellie's case I thought she was just a made up person who piped her eye (whatever that means) when she went to sleep.

Shirley Chisholm was the real thing. She was a class act in every way. A woman President?....I would have voted for her in a "New York" minute.

Thank you for sharing about these great women. It was a woman working with Watson Creek who decoded the DNA helix, but she got no credit.
