With profiles drawn from the collections of the Library of Congress, these Knowledge Cards pay tribute to 48 inspiring women who have exhibited the courage and determination to reach beyond the ordinary and expected, often braving seemingly insurmountable gender and political tyrannies in the process.
They defied expectation, flouted convention, outfought or outthought those who tried to stop them, and led remarkable (if not always happy) lives; and they achieved outstanding success in fields of endeavor—literature, world exploration, natural science, political leadership, performing arts, and sports—formerly considered appropriate only to the attention of men.
Each Knowledge Card in this deck presents a photograph and a brief biography of a daring woman.
This pack includes varied profiles of women such as Marie Curie, Annie Smith Peck, Annie Jump Cannon, and many more!
• With 48 fact-filled cards per package, Knowledge Cards are a great source of condensed information—all in a deck the size of a pack of playing cards.
