Jeannette Rankin was not only the first woman ever elected to congress, she did so before women had the right to vote across the US. She was a suffragist, a social worker, and she believed not only in women's rights, but in space for women within politics. She was a seriously good witch, who made waves in Washington and helped changed the country and politics for the better.
