First female enlisted sailor, and the first woman allowed to serve in the US military as a woman (rather than dressed as a man): Loretta Perfectus Walsh. She also became the first female Chief on March 21, 1917. This was before she could even vote, since the nineteenth amendment didn’t pass until 1920.
Hooyah, Chief Walsh!

What they did not want you to ever find out is that your generation, the generation born between 1980-1995, actually outnumbers the Baby Boomers. They knew that if you ever turned your eye towards political reform, you could change the world. They tried to keep you sated on vapid television shows and vapid music. They cut off your education and fed you brain candy. They took away your music and gave you Top Ten pop stations. They cut off your art and replaced it with endless reality shows for you to plug into, hoping you would sit quietly by as they ran the world. We as a society are only as strong as our weakest link. Give ‘em hell, kids.
