Molly Brown

 

Titanic-Thumbnails-300x300(9)

 

Molly Brown, otherwise known as the ‘unsinkable Molly Brown’, was one of the first women to run for political office in the United States. She ran eight times before women even had the right to vote! However, when she boarded the Titanic at the last minute, little did she know that necessity would require her leadership abilities. She took charge, helping the other women board the life-boats, and boosting morale. When she finally boarded her life-boat she had the presence of mind to set up a survivors committee  to raise funds for the sufferers who made it to New York. She stands as a greater testament to the strength of mankind than the Titanic ever will.
