Amazing Women in History

As we wrap up Women’s History Month, we conclude by highlighting two other important women. Their courage and strength changed the course of history. And, their actions, motivating and empowering for future generations of women.

One of our amazing youth volunteers at Showering Love, Gavin Harvey, an 8th grader at Silver Trail Middle School in Davie, offered to write this blog. These are his words spotlighting important women, during Women’s History Month. Thank you, Gavin! You did an awesome job and we truly appreciate your time and hard work.

Women Changing the World

Gavin writes about 2 remarkable women, Hariett Tubman and Marie Curie. Both women alike made a huge impact and forever left their imprint in our history! Past, present, and future. We celebrate their contributions, courage, and perseverance. And, their will in saving and changing many lives.

“Throughout history, there have been countless individuals that have impacted society. In this month of March, we recognize many important women. Key figures and good examples of heroes and leaders to look up to. Although there are so many women that have impacted society, there are two women that are well known and the subject of many biographies and inspirational quotes. These two women are Harriet Tubman and Marie Curie. Always keeping in mind that many historical females have passed on but are not forgotten.

The Brave and Valiant “Conductor” of the Underground Railroad

Harriet Tubman, known for her heroic and selfless acts while being enslaved. She made a daring escape from slavery and saved many lives of others who were also enslaved. This heroic woman, in her twenties, began by helping others escape slavery through a system known as the “The Underground Railroad.” For over 10 years, she was the “conductor” of this operation that saved so many.

Through this “Underground Railroad” system, many slaves were able to escape. They were finally able to live happier days with family and being free. Although Harriet knew what she was doing was very dangerous, she kept going. If they found out what she was doing, she could potentially get killed or hurt. This amazing lady knew that someone had to do it for the benefit of others.

Thankfully, she was never caught. When slavery ended in the 1860s, Harriet went on to live a long and fruitful life and lived to be over 90 years old.

First of Only Ten Women to Win the Nobel Peace Prize

Along with Harriet Tubman, Marie Curie was another very important woman in our history. She was widely known as one of the greatest physicists of all time. During World War I, Curie developed mobile radiography units to provide X-Ray services in field hospitals.

Additionally, she won a Nobel Peace Prize in 1916 for her big discovery of polonium and radium. This gives her the honor of being the first woman ever awarded the Nobel Prize, and only 9 other women have achieved this.

To spread her knowledge, Marie Curie established two schools/ universities: “Curie Institute in Paris”, and, “Curie Institute in Warshaw.” To top it all off, Marie Curie worked very well with others, especially her husband and colleague.

We can all learn from hundreds of other women who changed our society for the better. They both were very influential, although in different ways. Whether it was through inventions, discoveries, or acts of bravery. Their influence was equally as important and impactful.

Influence of Women

During Women’s History Month, we reflect on these great women who have worked hard to accomplish the amazing things they have done. As time goes on, many more influencers will come and shape our world into a more educated and modified one for future generations.”
