28. Women throughout history aren't given the credit they deserve.

Throughout history, women have done brave and forward thinking things, in the face of real adversity and discrimination and shaming.

Not to take away from anyone's accomplishments, even men. But men tend to appreciate the accomplishments and bravery of other men, mainly white men.

When women do things, it's often more difficult, in the face of society's pressure against it, or at a dear cost that men don't have to pay.

Girls and women in some Middle Eastern countries persist with education and other things, though oppressed and even disfigured with acid in the face, or killed. Women can be very brave.
