A woman once said "Educate a boy, you educate a man, but educate a girl and you educate a family" (Face To Face: We Founded, n.d. pg.1). This woman was Adelaide Hunter Hoodless, born on February 27, 1857, who was an incredible woman with the qualities of a leader and inspiring other women with her speeches (Adelaide Hunter Hoodless Homestead, n.d. pg.1). She changed many women's lives as she made education beyond grade 8 possible for women and girls as well as helping women reach equality with men. It all started when Adelaide went to Ladies College and met John Hoodless whom she married and later had 4 children (Who Is Adelaide Hunter Hoodless, n.d. pg.1). Then, tragedy struck in the family.
He was the first thing that made her want to help others. “She was devoted to and profoundly influenced by her father, an idealist and philanthropist of Quaker tendencies and a state senator of Illinois for16 years” (Gale 54). Her determination was seen early in her life. Even though many women were advised not to go to college because they were meant for marriage and not education, those days’ women used stay home and run the household while the man works and support the family. Why I think she is a hero?
Elizabeth Blackwell was born in Bristol, England in 1821, to Hannah Lane and Samuel Blackwell. Because Samuel did not accept believes of the established protestant church in England, Elizabeth and her elder sisters were denied public schooling. Samuel hired private tutors and instructed the girls the same subjects as the boys and also Hannah inspired them by introducing them to music and literature. Samuel was a sugar refiner and both for financial reasons and because he wanted to help to end slavery, the family moved to America when Elizabeth was 11 years old. Her father died in 1838 and left them only 20 dollars in his account.

In the book Where the Heart Is by Billie Letts, Novalees mother and Willy jack pretended to love her when they needed things from her. Others, like Sister Husband, showed her what a real family was like. She showed Novalee that even if you just met the person, they can care for you more than your biological family ever could. Forney proved to her that love really does exist and that a family is the people who love and care for you. Novalee made sure that she had a family that would care for her and love her and care for and love Americus, too.
She had been adverted to consider the spousal relationship as a responsibility and burgeon and may well have implied that at that time the factor of sensuality was missing on her side. All her relationships were qualified by caution, solicitude, and kindliness. Three years afterwards she wedded her 5th cousin, Franklin Roosevelt, an appropriate fit for a woman of her assort. But Franklin's overly-protective mother shortly set out to broaden her dominance over her recent daughter-in-law.

Her background was interdisciplinary and included a thorough grounding in linguistics, ethnology, and the history of religions, which was unusual for an archaeologist. In 1949, she moved to the United States, where she would remain until her death four decades later. With her extensive knowledge of European languages, Marija Gimbutas was employed by Harvard University in 1950. She was assigned the task of conducting research and writing texts regarding European prehistory. Gimbutas was able to read and translate the archaeological reports from Eastern Europe, which opened the American to new ideas on archeology.
