They were more aware of environmental issues than their predecessors.

Advisor: No one person can claim to be the first woman President of the United States, but no one can forget Lady Gaga when she performed “croogies” to her millions of fans. She did not become famous overnight, nor was she an overnight success. She built a devoted following of devotees that grew with each new release of her self-titled music and tour. This is because she built a huge list of fans that trusted her opinion and were moved by her authenticity. This is the power of the internet and the way that it has connected people around the world to share their stories and to give us direction.
First Woman President Of The United States Of America: It is quite amazing how things have changed in the last half century. While most people would not have even heard of the 19th amendment if it were not for women’s suffrage, it has made a very important contribution to the country. Not only did the 19th amendment to give women the right to vote, but it also gave them the right to stand up for what they believe in. Without this amendment women would not be able to fight for the causes that they do today and it is an honor for every woman in this country to stand up for their beliefs and to fight for what they deserve.
