  • Introducing our Inspirational Women

    Amelia Earhart


    Amelia Earhart was an American aviator who set many flying records and led the advancement of women in aviation as she became the first women to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean and the first person to fly solo from Hawaii to US mainland. She disappeared somewhere over the Pacific Ocean on July 2, 1937 and her plane was never found, and she was declared lost at sea on January 5, 1939. Her disappearance is one of the greatest unsolved mysteries of the 20th century. At a young age, she defied gender norms as she played basketball, took a course in auto repair, and went to college for a short period. She worked as a Red Cross nurse's aid during World War I, and after that she enrolled at Columbia University as a student in pre-med. She first got an interest in flying in December of 1920 when she went on her first airplane ride

    Ruth Bader Ginsburg


    Ruth Bader Ginsburg fought for equality for women and was the Supreme Courts second female justice, but she spent a very long time facing adversity before being appointed a Supreme Court justice. She was born on March 15, 1933 in Brooklyn, New York. Her birth name was Joan Ruth Bader. During the Great Depression, her father was a furrier, and her mother worked at a garment factory. Her mother instilled a love of education in her as well as heavily influenced her early life, but was diagnosed with cancer, and died the day before Ginsburg graduated from high school. Ginsburg had to forgo her education for her brother to pay for college.

    Malala Yousafzai


    Malala Yousafzai is an activist for female education. At a young age, she started to publicly advocate for female education as well as trained with local empowerment organisations for girls which gave them advice on women's rights and peacefully. When she was 11, she blogged for the BBC about living in Pakistan while the Taliban was threatening to close girls’ schools. As a young girl, she defied the Taliban, and demanded that girls be allowed to get an education. She became an advocate for girls’ education when she was a child, which resulted in the Taliban issuing a death threat against her. She was shot in the head by a Taliban gun man in 2012, but she survived. In 2013, she gave a speech to the UN and published her first book, I am Malala, and in 2014, she became the youngest person to receive a Nobel Prize.
