    This is a picture of Annie Oakley. I see her as an idol because she was over all a very strong woman. She is one of the best markswomen of all time and this inspires me. I love this quote because it touches on the issue that women are inferior to men in some way. Annie says that it was a trick rather than skill when she hit a target. Luckily, society today does reconize a womens talent as talent, not a trick.

    Annie Oakley is the type of role model girls should have these days. She was a strong and confident woman who proved that women can be just as good, if not better, than men with firearms.

    Strong women of history.. Annie Oakley quote

  • Darlene Lauth

    People have such different expectations for men and women. Annie Oakley said it perfectly. If a woman is a very talented ANYTHING that is considered masculine by society, she is an anomaly, or chastised, or told she should find something else to do. And it's sad! Individuals should be judged not on what they want to do with their lives but on their spirit and attitude while they do it.
