My thoughts on Jeanette Rankin...

I thought Jeanette was an interesting person to read about. I thought it was cool how she was the first woman to become part of the Congress. I would of liked to learn more about her. I like learning about history and seeing history in pictures. I think it would be cool to learn more about other women being first in things like Jeanette.
