This Women's History month, we at Uedify want to take some time to honor the women who have made an impact on education. Women haven't always legally been allowed to have a voice in society, but that didn't stop them. Let's take a moment to spotlight a couple of women who have changed the world!
Women's History Spotlight
Alice Freeman Palmer continuously fought for women's right to obtain a college degree. Over the course of her life she held multiple positions in academia that allowed her to be a champion for women. While dean of the Women's Department at the University of Chicago she double the population of female students.
Patsy Mink, along with being the first woman of color to be elected to the House of Representatives, was a major author and sponsor of the Title IX Law. This law made it illegal to discriminate against women in educational programs or activity receiving Federal financial assistance. How about that for paving the road for future generations?
Alice Freeman Palmer and Patsy Mink are not by any means the only women to significantly impact education. To learn about others, check out the links below.
Part of our mission at Uedify is to provide a platform to women across the world allowing them to teach their wisdom and expertise to anyone. No voice should go unheard or undervalued. Join us in changing the way the world spreads and absorbs wisdom.
