Florence Nightingale | Celebrating Women in History

March is Women's History Month.

May 12th is International Nurses Day. This special day has been celebrated since 1965. The date was chosen because it is the B-Day (birthday) for Florence Nightingale , a pioneer in healthcare and health reform, and the mother of modern nursing. 
"We are all ordinary people. But some of us are motivated to do extraordinary things. I am always curious to know what drives or drove another individual to pursue a certain path in their life such that they end up leaving behind marks in history that endure forever. One such character I studied is Florence Nightingale."

In Memory Of:

May 12, 1820 – August 13, 1910

Women in Science : Give Credit When Due

Celebrating Women's History Month.


There's a scripture that says we should "give credit where credit is due, and give honor to whom honor is due".  Don't know why, but it's easy to laud this principle and very difficult to apply it to real life situations. Anyway ... I don't think any of these women are bitter.  They probably consider that they were blessed to have the avenues and opportunities to use their talents and gifts for the greater good.  Women are like that.  Yeah they are!

Ever heard of any of these women? I hadn't until I came across these interesting BIO snapshots.

- Lise Meitner, Physicist

- Émilie du Châtelet, Mathematician

- Julia Morgan, Architect

- Rosalind Franklin, Biophysicist

Interesting tidbit:
  • Emilie du Chatelet was named Gabrielle-Emilie; however, friends in her circle which included Voltaire {Francois-Marie Arouet (1694 - 1778), who later took the name of Voltaire} dropped Gabrielle and just called her Emilie. Her husband's name was the Marquis du Chastellet. But because Voltaire called her du Chatelet, everyone else did too!  [Click the embedded link her name above to read more.]

Reading real biographies is awesome!
But creating fake biographies sure sounds like fun!
This teacher suggests using a tool to study biographies differently.  The tool is called "Fakebook".  Just pretend you work for the CIA and you're making up a fake dossier. :)

4 Things Women in Business are Told (that Men aren't) | Project Eve

Worked a 9 to 5 job for several years in the corporate workplace and don't remember being told this, Also don't remember being doggedly pursued to be offered a management position. If you're going to be an executive perhaps that's when this type of advice is volunteered. Volunteered? Yes. The "4 Things" don't seem like advice that any working woman would actually ask for. If these tips were offered to me, my responses would be:


  • To Thing #1: Uuuhhh ... WHY?
  • To Thing #2: Uuuhhh ... WHY?
  • To Thing #3: You're telling me that? WHY?
  • To Thing #4: Uuuhhh ... WHY?

4 Things Women in Business are Told (that Men aren't)

The glass ceiling is still very much in place, there's still not equal pay, and women aren't sure if they should lean in or lean out. As a woman moving up the ranks in a business, starting her own company, or treading into executive territory, they're told some things that men never hear.
