"You know, my hair is very upsetting to people, but it's upsetting on purpose. It is important to look old so that the young will not be afraid of dying. People don't like old women. We don't honor age in our society, and we certainly don't honor it in Hollywood." - Tyne Daly

Mary Edwards Walker is the first and only woman in history to earn the Congressional Medal of Honor. When the Civil War broke out, she went to Washington and tried to join the Union Army. She was denied a commission as a medical officer but volunteered anyway, serving unpaid as an acting assistant surgeon, the first female surgeon in the U.S. Army.

Jennie Jerome, Winston Churchill's lovely American mom. She was an awesome woman and my Great-Auntie used to live in her cottage.
