Lyn Cote Asks-Have you ever heard of America’s First Self-Made Female Millionaire?

Have you ever heard of Madame C J Walker? She was the first self-made (not inherited wealth) woman millionaire in the US.

This video is just a quick dab of info. If you click the tab above, marked Women Who Made History, I have a  longer video that tells much more about this remarkable woman.

Empowering Other Women

Not only did she make a million but she empowered other women to make a living and give them self-confidence in a world and time, that told women they were inferior and without value. This is what I love about America. Even in the time of Jim Crow, an African-American woman was able to pursue her dream, make her fortune and help others. I hope this nation will never lose its economic freedom or any other.

Believe it or not–

Do you know of any remarkable woman that has been overlooked? Tell me about her.–Lyn

My latest strong heroine, Christiane.

 

A young beauty flees the French royal court,

Christiane moves into the heart of the American rebel elite.

But one man can’t be forgotten-once her friend-now her enemy. 

Will he be destiny? http://bit.ly/2uuxeQA
