A lesson in women's history, brought to you by the Bad Girl's 2003 calendar:

On this day in 1849, Elizabeth Blackwell became the first woman in US history offically recognized as a physician.

On this day in 1997, Madeline Korbel Albright (that's Wellesley '59 to you) was sworn in as Secretary of State, becoming the highest-ranking female official in US history.

That's right. I'm a Bad Girl. You gotta problem with that?
