Our Women’s History Month celebration continues as we highlight the most influential women in history as chosen by you. Next up is Sandra Day O’Connor who was selected by Josie Johnson – an Evanston 4th grader, Irish dancer, and creative writer who will honor O’Connor tonight at Willard Elementary’s Wax Museum of American History. Writes Miss Johnson:
“I think one of the most influential women is Sandra Day O’Connor who was the first woman on the U.S. Supreme Court. She was a pioneer in women’s rights and completed her job even under intense scrutiny. She made clear that a job can be for any gender, and she proved women are just as good as men.”
You can learn more about Sandra Day O’Connor below, and make sure to share your pick for one of the most influential women in history. Tell us today by visiting EPL Celebrates Women’s History Month.
