Did you know…

• Rosa Parks was a member of a movement for racial equality along with Martin Luther King Jr. Her protest on the bus was pre-planned but not for that time, she saw the opportunity and the timing was right to make a statement about human equality

• Keisha was threatened with losing her freedom to produce music if she didn't retract her statement of sexual abuse in a recent court case. She chose truth even though it might ruin her reputation and career

• Audrey Hepburn used to eat tulip bulbs to survive during the second world war instead of starving to death

• Malala Yousafzai is the young feminism activist who was shot in the face in retaliation for her activism, not only did she survive but the scar on her face is a lasting reminder that her attempted murder failed and she continues to encourage girls to seek out education

• Frida Kahlo lost the ability to have children through a freak bus accident and suffered pain throughout the rest of her life but she used this pain in expressive art and became a popular artist in a time when women weren't really at the forefront of the art world
