There are hundreds of women throughout history, but I want to talk about the famous women like Clara Barton, Helen Keller, Queen Elizabeth the 1st and Joan Of Arc because I find their lives to be fascinating. These women did a lot, like starting the American Red Cross,overcoming multiple health problems, founding a church and ending a war. They did amazing things and went down in history.
Clara Barton founded the American Red Cross to aid people in case of disasters like forest fires and hurricanes. She worked in a number of professions including teaching children. She helped find more than 22,000 missing soldiers. Helen Keller was struck blind ,deaf and mute at 18 months old and until she was 6 years old threw temper tantrums because she couldn’t communicate. That changed when Anne Sullivan arrived and helped open her eyes to the world around her. Helen then did all kinds of things like going to college and meeting President Roosevelt and his wife. Queen Elizabeth never married, earning her the nickname “ the Virgin Queen”. She founded the Protestant church. She was the target of several assassination attempts, none of which were successful. Her reign was called the Elizabethan Era, during which there was a huge surge in culture. Joan of Arc helped the Crown Prince of France defeat the English and she was accused of being a heretic and burned at the stake. She was skilled at battling the English and winning the war. She claimed to have divine visions of God.
Women have played a very important role in shaping history and changing the world for the better. We can all learn a lot from history and the people in it.
