One of the most inspiring women in the world is Margaret Angelou. Born as Emilementee in Saint-Remy, France, Angelou was a young girl when her mother was killed during a French junta, which occurred during the period of World War II. She later became an icon in the struggle for civil rights and other progressive causes, which made her one of the most famous and influential women in the world. In fact, the Black Women’s Memorial Foundation in Washington, D.C., named one of their greatest female champions in the history of the United States, upon the completion of her achievements. These women changed the world
Among the many notable people in the United States, Angelou ranks high on the list of those who changed the world. She is second only to Mother Teresa, who was the first woman saint. Angelou had different beliefs, but she was a passionate and tireless advocate for social change throughout her life. She was a strong, votive Christian, and a passionate critic of racism and injustice, speaking out against Apartheid throughout the years, while writing often and strongly about the impact of racism on children and young people in the French and African-American communities.
Among all those who are featured on this list, perhaps none has had as much of an influence upon world events as did Angelou. She was a key figure in the African-American civil rights movement and remains highly respected as an icon today. This book would be a great gift for any woman interested in learning more about the life and work of this remarkable woman. It will give a fascinating glimpse into the world and the lives of some very important and influential women. This book will make a wonderful addition to any woman’s library.Read More
