Mary Jackson was one of the first African American female engineers at NASA and helped other women get hired there.
Many people have been inspired by Rosa Parks and motivated to become the best version of themselves because of her.
From the dawn of time, women haven’t been considered equal, which is not fair because there are many powerful and valiant women.
All the women in my family are definitely considered valiant women, but the one who stood out the most to me is my grandmother.
One well-known and valiant woman is Michelle Obama. She is known as a compelling role model.
Simone Biles and Serena Williams demonstrate their determination through hard work.
Women in history have made significant strides for equality and have set the example as role models for women everywhere.
Students submitted artwork and photos that represent the theme. See the edition for additional artwork.
