But despite all the chaos, she was able to handle things on her own. All images of Jackie Kennedy, being a well-educated First Lady, a fashion icon, and later a surviving widow, showed other women what it meant to be a strong individual in the 1950s. People today still look up to her, not only because she knew how to look beautiful, but also because of her powerful and courageous impressions on women. Jackie Kennedy showed that women in the nineteenth century could be smart, have an education, and could still be beautiful at the same time. This meant that women wouldn’t be looked down on for having the education needed to have a job an...

Great Leaders come in all shapes, sizes, backgrounds and time periods. One of those Great Leaders is Eleanor Roosevelt, a hard working mother, wife and politician’s right hand. She spent her time as First Lady changing the role of the First Lady. No longer would she be expected to keep house and entertain only, but make a difference in her own way, and make a name for herself that can stand alone from her husband. Eleanor Roosevelt was a Great Leader of her time, and her influence has continued to this day.
This, in her later years would serve as one of her most significant personalities. As the first first lady of America, Martha would show her country, and the rest of the world, that she was deserving of the title. Young Patsy grew up with many riches, including silk dresses, many toys—imported from England of course—books, and lavish furniture. Slaves to execute her every chore, a growing number of friends and family to keep her company, and vast fields of tobacco to lark about, Patsy’s childhood was spent in glee and satisfaction. But one of her most negative aspects was her education.
Amelia Earhart has resonated in our society, ever since her death, but she was also a very prominent figure during the Great Depression. Earhart was a very independent woman, and prided herself on this. Born on July 24th, 1897, from a very young age she embraced a sense of experimentation and physical freedom , which led to her success in woman’s rights later in her life. As a child Earhart described, “It has always seemed to me that boys and girls are educated very differently.” When Earhart got married to George Putnam she was very clear with him that “even though they were to be bound by marriage, she was still an individual woman with her own rights.” She even went as far as to say on her wedding day that she would “not hold [her husband, George Putnam] to any medieval code of faithfulness to me nor shall I consider myself to bound to you similarly.” She also would never take up her Putnam’s name in order to remain an independent woman; in fact her Putnam was often called Mr. Earhart. As well as having an independent outlook on life, Earhart was very optimistic, and believed...

Katharine Hepburn Graceful, charming, hilarious, self-confident, hard-working, determined, outrageous; Katharine Hepburn has been gathering adjectives for years, adding them to her image with carelessness and calculation. In an era of changing roles for women, Katharine Hepburn was able to use her influence on the American film to stand out as an early role model of the modern American woman. She had the essence of the successful adventuress: no mater the challenge, she survived in tact with her sense of humor in good working order. Born on May 12, 1907 in Hartford, Connecticut, Katharine had the good fortune to be born to her well-to-do parents, Katharine and Thomas Hepburn, who believed in freedom of thought and put no obstacles in their daughter's way. Both were active in the fight for many social and medical reforms for women: the vote, prostitution, white slavery, teen-age pregnancy, venereal disease, domestic hygiene, birth control; topics that were not discussed in polite private conversation, much less publicly.
