    i’m sorry, but i can’t really do much of this because well, it’s a bit hard to do all those things when i don’t really know much about them or anyone in my family went to war so sorry!

  3. Rosa Parks was born in Montgomery in 1913 and she had to overcome living in a racist community. So she decided to start a group to stop racism and so they did things to help with that for over a year and now there is barely any racism apparently.

  4. Joan Jett
    Joan Jett was born in USA. She was born on 22nd of September 1958. Joan loved playing guitar and got her own one on her 13th birthday. Then she formed a band called The Runaways. Sandy on drums, Cherie on vocals, Jackie played bass and Lita was the bands main guitarist. Joan sung and played rhythm on guitar. Joan has inspired women to be rock stars. I think that it is more fair if women are punk rockers too. Men hated The Runaways because it was giving women courage. She had to overcome the rude complaints of men and had to be who she was.

  5. My Hero
