Friday Frivolity - Amazing Women Edition

It's time for this week's edition of Friday Frivolity - the blog party for all things fun, funny, hopeful & happy!

Just wait until you see what we dug up for this week's theme...

At last week's party, we had fun celebrating Dr. Seuss' birthday.

This week, we're focusing on the gals in honor of International Women's Day this past week.

Initially, I'd planned to bring you all sorts of wacky women memes to start your weekend off with a laugh.

But when I sat down to actually type, I was inspired to present you with a list of some of the most amazing and influential women from history.

Some you'll know, but there might just be one or two that you'll meet for the first time...
Harriet Tubman: Escaped slave who helped 70 families reach freedom on the Underground Railroad.
Clara Barton: Pioneering nurse who founded the American Red Cross. (Since I read about a zillion nurse books as a kid, I pretty much devoured anything having to do with Clara Barton that I came across.)
Marie Curie: Besides being the first woman to win a Nobel Prize, she's still the only one to have won it in two different sciences!
Hedy Lamarr: This glamorous movie star actually invented a jamming-resistant radio guidance system for use in Allied torpedoes in her spare time!   

Joan Ganz Cooney: American television producer who co-created Sesame Street.

Astronaut Sally Ride and Cosmonaut Valentina Tereshkova: First American woman in space and first woman in space, respectively. (You can't get much cooler than orbiting the Earth!)

Now time for the new stuff!
