Rosa Parks

R is for Rosa Parks for atozchallenge

African American women have done extremely well for themselves  –  while i am of Asian lineage, and it is very natural to look at Asian women as role models, I am equally surprised by the wide diversity of area in which the African American excel well.

Probably Rosa Parks is one of those first few women who stood up for themselves and in turn for the society. When she was subjected to a situation which she felt was wrong, she stood for the right  –  the right to be free and speak about it and do something about it  –  She had the courage to do what she thought was right and that in turn laid the foundation of a big change in the American history. If you want to pick up one person who taught that women can be fearless anytime, then you have to read more about Rosa Parks –  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rosa_Parks
