American women have come far since the first women's rights convention in 1848. The first female conductor, speaker of the house, astronaut to walk in space, chess grandmaster and others explain what it was like to break the glass ceiling in their field, and what is next for America's women.
A month or two ago, I was looking for sport stories for my reports on Missourinet, I was scanning different colleges here in Missouri and went to the Webster University. I think I was actually checking to see if their baseball and softball programs had advanced to any post-season tournaments
Susan Polgar: “People truly believed it was impossible for women to play good chess or become a grandmaster. They really were convinced that because no other woman had done it before me it was impossible. But I learned chess quickly and it became part of my mission.”
