WOMENS-symbolThroughout history, women have made their mark in a wide variety of ways.  Each Saturday I plan to highlight one of these remarkable women.  There will be no limit to the areas of history that I may include; however, as a guide, I will look to the month of their birth, the month of their death or the month associated with their mark in history when I select them.  Is there an outstanding woman in history you would like me to include?  I welcome your suggestions.  Would you like to guest blog one of the world’s outstanding women?  Let me hear from you.  Here are my posts so far in alphabetical order.
