In honor of Women’s History Month, I decided to print off photos of women who were recognized as the first female in their field to do something.  As I was reading through the extensive history, I was struck how each one of these women worked her entire life in a career,  often a career in service to others.   No doubt she worked under various forms of discrimination. “Nevertheless, she persisted,”  and she succeeded in previously held male-dominated fields.   Kudos to the women who have gone before us.  Kudos to the women who are currently competing in male-dominated fields.  Kudos.
