Often I encourage young girls as well as my middle-aged friends to always be on the look out for women role models. Role models provide us a renewed sense of optimism and increase our confidence in our own ability to succeed. Role models set examples for us and our daughters. Their actions and words demonstrate strength, confidence, perseverance, selflessness and passion. They are all around us, but do not seek the spotlight.
Rarely do we hear their stories and we do not know their names. That is, until now. While writing last night a close friend recommended a great website, www.greatamericans.com. If a picture is worth a 1000 words, this site is worth millions.
