Gertrude Ederle

My thoughts

Gertrude like many inspirational 1920's women, changed world as people knew it back then. Women weren't allowed to do practically anything like women are allowed to in today's seocitey. They couldn't vote, speak their mind, or do anything without their husband's approval. This women like many others including Amelia Eirheart helped change seocity.
