Do You Know Who These Women Are And What They Accomplished?

I decided to find out how many people recognized and understood what the women
mentioned in my video, “Palin’ By Comparison”, had accomplished by creating a survey.
Some of the questions were tricky; I had fun making it a multiple choice version, and
some of the answers didn’t cover a woman’s entire body of accomplishments, but I did
my best to include real answers among the fake (and some were “all of the above” or none
of the above questions, as well.

These are the results. To find the test, you have to go to my FB page and click on the link
under the wall post. You’ll know it if you look for it. These results are based on 145 people
responding to the test.

I think the most interesting aspect of reading the results was how many people SKIPPED over
a question. To me, that indicated that, perhaps, the woman I presented wasn’t someone the person
taking the survey knew at all.

I highlighted in bold the women who I felt were least recognized, just to point
them out in case anyone wants to find out more about them.
