Women Who Brought About Change: Jeanette Rankin

March is Women’s History Month and in honor of the occasion, The Lawyer and the Chef have decided to briefly profile some inspirational women who helped effect change in the U.S. The first profile is of Jeanette Rankin.

As a fellow Montanan and somebody interested in the promoting women’s equality, the Lawyer has always admired Jeanette Rankin and her contributions to history.  Jeanette Rankin also features prominently on the Lawyer’s list of people, dead or alive, who she would most like to invite to dinner.  Sadly, despite the value of her contributions, most people (especially most people outside the state of Montana) would respond with a blank stare when Jeanette Rankin’s name is mentioned.  So without further ado, a brief infographic on Jeanette Rankin:
