||Sometimes being a girl isn't easy. There are too many people who tell you that you can't do things and that you aren't good enough. This is the story of 13 courageous American women who didn't believe that. They persisted even though they were often told they would not succeed. If anyone ever tells you your dreams are too big or that your voice shouldn't be heard, remember these women who persisted and achieved great things.|
