Women haven't always had an easy time achieving greatness but, even in the face of daunting odds, they still manage to rise to the top. Women have led countries and commanded armies and, as women took their place in society in the 20th century, they broke ground in every field. Sandra Day O’Connor was the first woman to sit on the Supreme Court bench, and Sally Ride was the first woman in outer space. Dorothy Dandridge shined as the first African-American woman nominated for an Academy Award. These women, and many others, paved the way for the women of their day, and of the future.
