Famous Women in History
"Famous Women in History" is an entry about famous women who have shaped 20th century history. Because of the sheer number of famous women throughout history, we chose to develop this entry around 10 different women. These 10 women are all uniquely different and have contributed in various ways to the shaping of our history. They're scientists, authors, entertainers, and pioneers to name just a few. The ten famous women covered in our entry are: Agatha Christie, Rosa Parks, Hillary Clinton, Helen Keller, Jane Goodall, Mother Teresa, Lucille Ball, Anne Frank, Amelia Earhart, and Marie Curie. Students studying social studies, science, or literature topics (interdisciplinary) will find our web entry quite interesting and informative. With each woman, we've made an effort to highlight intriguing biography facts, describe major accomplishments, and/or otherwise explain to visitors why the woman is an important figure in history. As we near the end of the 20th century, our site will help students and adults learn more about and appreciate the contributions this assortment of women have had in our history.
