People wanted her husband and not her so that made her try even harder for her rights as a woman. She even wrote a book about Womens rights. In one of the chapters she talks about how women should have the ability to work at the same jobs as men can. Her husband died in1849. She Found another man name Mills. Mills and Harriet got married in 1851. They moved to France. She died from respiratory failure. I hope you had a good time reading about the woman who stood up for womens rights.

4: Patrick Swayze | Patrick Swayze was an actor. He played in many movies. My favorite is Road House. He broke his leg when he was filming a movie in 1998. From People magazine he was chosen as one of 50 top most beautiful people in the world. Starting his career he started out as a dancer. He played in Cinderella in 1950. At fifteen years old he would attend dance lessons with his mother. At the age of nineteen he found his wife. Patrick Swayze died from cancer in 2009 at age 57. It is kind of strange because his father died at age 57 also, but he died from a heart attack. I hope you have had a great time reading this.

28: Rosa Parks | Rosa Parks is the woman who would rather get arrested than to give up her seat to a white person on the bus. She is also the woman who encouraged many people to stand up for them selves. The day she didn't give her seat up was on December 1, 1955. Rosa Parks kept defending her self and because of that she began a movement ending segregation. When she was growing she attended many segregated schools. Many people looked at her like a freedom giver. She was an amazing woman for doing that. When her father passed away that was a very hard time for her and her mother. It took her a really long time for her to get back on her feet. Well that is the amazing story of Rosa Parks.
