Wilma Mankiller, the first woman to be elected Chief of the Cherokee Nation’s tribal government. She was Principal Chief from 1985 to 1995. During this time Mankiller increased the nation’s membership from 68,000 to 170,000. She also opened three rural health centers and expanded the Head Start program for Cherokee children. Mankiller was born #OnThisDay in 1945 in Tahlequah, Oklahoma. She grew up on a 160-acre tract given to her grandfather as part of a federal government settlement. Mankiller was greatly impacted by a demonstration of Native Americans who took over Alcatraz Island for 19 months to call the government’s attention to the poor treatment of Native Americans. In 1981, she founded the Community Development Department of the Cherokee nation. She became the first woman Deputy Chief in 1983. When the Principal Chief was appointed Assistant Secretary for Indian Affairs, Mankiller became Principal Chief. She was then elected to the position in 1987. #NativeAmericanHeritageMonth #womenshistory #ManKiller #Sheisthefirst #Female #ChiefofCherokeeNation #nativeamerican #nativeproud #indgenouswomen #NAHM #wilmamankiller #oklahoma

#RepostSave @womenshistory with @repostsaveapp ・・・ Lyda Conley was the first female lawyer to be admitted to the Missouri and Kansas Bar. In 1910, she also became the first female Native American plaintiff to present a case before the United States Supreme Court. Her case was about the sale of Huron Place Cemetery in Kansas City. It was argued that the cemetery was a burial place of the Wyandot Nation, of which Conley was a direct member. Unfortunately, Conley lost the case, however, she did not stop fighting to protect the cemetery. In 1906, another sale was attempted, but Conley filed an injunction to stop the sale. While Conley did not live to see the cemetery protected, in 1971 it was added to the National Register of Historic Places. #womenshistory#LydaConley #indgenouswomen #NAHM #Sheisthefirst #WyandotNation #HuronPlaceCemetery #nativeamerican #equalrights #womensrights #lawyer #kansascity #missouri #nativeamericanheritagemonth

#OnThisDay in 1889 journalist Elizabeth Jane Cochrane, more commonly known as “Nellie Bly” left New York for a trip around the world. Bly traveled around the world by ship, train and burro in 72 days, 6 hours and 11 minutes, ahead of the fictional hero of Jules Verne’s popular book “Around the World in Eighty Days.” Bly worked as an investigative journalist, and faked insanity in 1887 to study an asylum from the perspective of a patient. After months of rejection from editors on the basis of her sex, Bly received the opportunity to investigate the insane asylum from the New York World.

Happy Veterans Day to all the men and women who have bravely served in our armed services. Women have served in the United States military ever since the Revolutionary War.
Brigadier General Wilma L. Vaught served with the U.S. Air Force for 28 years, from 1957 to 1985. She was the first woman promoted to brigadier general from the Comptroller career field, first woman to deploy with a Strategic Air Command bombardment wing on an operational deployment, and the first woman to command a unit receiving the Joint Meritorious Unit Award (the nation’s highest peacetime unit award.) In 1987, Vaught was elected President of the Board of Directors of the Women in Military Service for America Memorial Foundation and oversaw the construction, operation, and maintenance of the Women’s Memorial and Education Center at Arlington National Cemetery.
The National Graduate School of Quality Management awarded Vaught the school’s highest honor, an Honorary Doctorate Degree of Letters, for her lifelong accomplishments.

Martha Gellhorn was the first American woman to work as a war correspondent. She reported on virtually every major world conflict that took place during her 60-year career. Born in 1908, Gellhorn attended Bryn Mawr College, but left in 1927 to pursue journalism. Her first position was with New Republic before moving on to become a crime writer with a local newspaper. Gellhorn worked as a crime writer for a few years before earning a trip to Europe by writing a brochure for the Holland American Line. This allowed her to travel the continent. Overseas, with a base in Paris, Gellhorn was determined to become a foreign correspondent. She worked for various publications and eventually joined the United Press Bureau. Writing for Colliers Weekly, she covered the Spanish Civil War and traveled deep into Western Europe to cover World War II. In 1944, Gellhorn allegedly stowed away on a hospital ship to report on the D-Day landings. She was the only woman journalist to cover the arrival of the Allies. During World War II, she got British pilots to let her ride along on night bombing raids over Germany. The next year, she entered Dachau with American troops for the liberation of the infamous concentration camp. She covered Russia's war against Finland in 1939, trekked across China with Ernest Hemingway in 1940 and became increasingly critical of the United States, which she saw as a ''colonial power.'' In 1966, Gellhorn covered the war in Vietnam; in the 1980s she wrote about the wars in El Salvador and Nicaragua and the U.S. invasion of Panama.

|اشرف الملوک فخر الدوله| ۱۲۶۱ تبریز ـ ۱۳۳۴ تهران|
یکی از معروف ترین نقل قول ها در توصیف فخرالدوله، سخن رضاشاه است که گفته: قاجاریه یک مرد ونیم داشت، مردش فخر الدوله و نیم مردش آقا محمد خان قاجار بود.
فخر الدوله شاهزاده قاجار، دختر مظفرالدین قاجار، دخترخاله محمد مصدق و مادر علی امینی و از شخصیت های برجسته دوره خود بود.

فخرالدوله بنیانگذار نخستین مؤسسهٔ تاکسیرانی در تهران بود.
علاوه بر آن از جمله کارهای مهم او تاسیس آسایشگاه سالمندان در املاک موروثی‌اش واقع در کهریزک است که امروزه جزو بزرگترین مؤسسات یاری رسانی به مصدومان، از کار افتادگان و سالمندان به شمار می‌رود.

Bertha Parker Cody is considered one of the first female Native American archaeologists. Born in 1907 in New York, Cody's father was of Seneca decent and her mother Abenaki. Cody and her mother moved to California when she was about 7. She began her archaeology work in 1927 and two years later participated in excavations. During one of her early digs she discovered a pueblo site, which Cody would name "Scorpion Hill." The findings of this site were displayed in the Southwest Museum in California. She was then hired by the museum to work as an assistant in Archaeology from 1931 to 1941. Later in life, Cody worked as a technical advisor and consultant on TV shows and movies that depicted Native Americans.
