This unit studies briefly the lives of 16 extraordinary women, with extension activities to study further. The unit can be extended quite extensively as much of it is research based.

It is only over a little more than the last century that women have begun to be seen as more than "second-class citizens" - that is,being equal to men.

If you can think of a list of great people over the last 100 or 200 years, inventors, presidents, doctors, scientists, explorers and rulers of nations, most of the names on that list will be the names of men.

Women, if they do appear on that list usually had to struggle for success and to be recognized. Often the obstacles that faced them were presented by the society in which they lived and also very often by their families.

One of the major obstacles women faced in the past was a lack of education. While boys were sent to school so that they could learn to take their place in the world, women were expected to aim at making a good marriage, learning to take care of a home and having children.

As well as fighting for themselves, women have tried to change the world for others too.

Florence Nightingale set out for the Crimea to nurse wounded soldiers during the war. She ended up changing the way hospitals are run all over the world.

Former slaves Sojourner Truth and Harriet Tubman fought for the abolition of the terrible injustice of slavery.

Eleanor Roosevelt helped to forge the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and Eglantyne Jebb was among those who put it into practice all over the world.

In this book you will learn about 16 determined women who finally won equal rights, and also those women who helped to change the world in some way.

From rulers, explorers, former slaves, musicians, writers - women from all walks of life - women feature among the greatest on any list.

In this book we will meet some of the greatest women of all time as we commemorate Women's History Month during March in celebration of these outstanding people. Of course we are not able to mention every great woman so we have selected a few whose names you will already be familiar with and some who may not be that well known to you.

Each section contains reference and reading, as well as activities and review questions, and a section for your own research either in your local library or on the internet. Although aimed at middle elementary school, this unit can be adapted to either younger or older learners with the inclusion of additional activities and lessons.

Labelled and blank Index Cards have been included for research on other women who have helped to change the world.

Format
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
