WOMEN PIONEERS

March 12th in history:

Former Massachusetts Governor Willard Mitt Romney, better known as “Mitt,” was born on March 12th, 1947.  Romney was the Republican nominee for president in the 2012 election, following in the footsteps of his father George Romney, who campaigned for the White House in 1968 while serving as governor of Michigan.

Mitt Romney ran for the U.S. Senate against Ted Kennedy in 1994.  That same year, on March 12th, the Church of England ordained female priests for the first time.

The first Girl Scout meeting in the U.S. occurred on March 12th, 1912, in Savannah, Georgia. Girl Scouts founder Juliette Gordon Low recruited 18 girls for the meeting. (We don’t know if cookies were served.)

And March 12th is the birthday of the most famous female spy for CONTROL…Barbara Feldon, Agent 99 in the TV series “Get Smart.”  But would you believe, we don’t know for sure what year she was born.  Must be a government secret.
