  1. Nice little quiz. Should be much longer. How can you leave out Dr. Christine Grant and her significant work to create Title IX for gender equality? What about Pearl McGill, an early leader in the organized labor movement?

  2. Thank you for the response. Dr. Grant and Pearl McGill are among several other amazing women left out of the quiz in order to keep it as three questions. Thank you for noting their accomplishments, which are many.
