The story of women has changed throughout time. Today more than seventy percent of moms with kids under the age of eighteen work more than 40 hours a week. More than sixty percent of college degrees awarded over the last twenty years have gone to women. In fact the two highest IQs ever recorded were that of females. Yet societies throughout the modern world still put up boundaries and obstacles for the mothers and daughters of our lives. We look at some key figures that helped make all of this possible for women today. As we look for the next Marie Curie or Margaret Thatcher of this time.
