Strong Women in History by Linda Harris Sittig

Welcome to my blog ~ Strong Women in History. My name is Linda Sittig and if you have found your way here, then most likely you are also intrigued by the many fascinating women in history whose lives made a difference on this planet.  As a History major in college, and an avid reader since the age of nine, I have always been fascinated by the women who dared to be different.  Those who courageously stood up for what they believed, faced adversarial opponents, and who forged ahead to do something amazing with their lives.  Some of these women hail from ancient history and some from contemporary times.  They lived, or live, on almost every continent on Earth, and belong to a variety of ethnic backgrounds.  Each month I will highlight one of them.  Some may be famous, such as Cleopatra, and some you may never have heard of, like Ellen Canavan of Philadelphia.  But each woman written about on my blog deserves recognition, not because of beauty or wealth, but because she believed in a cause and went forward to accomplish a goal she deemed would benefit others, and sometimes herself as well.  Join with me the first of every month as I pay tribute to a Strong Woman in History.

    This has the makings of a great blog! I can’t wait to read more.
    We all know there are more strong women than are visible to the naked eye. For every famous woman, there were many more working quietly behind the scenes to do great things, while others worked just as quietly and effectively to make their own world a better place. Thank you for paying homage to all strong women.
