Here are the famous, and the little-known ... from Hatshepsut, a queen and pharaoh in Egypt in the 15th century B.C., to Janet Reno, the first woman attorney general of the United States ... from Phillis Wheatley born in 1753, the first published African-American poet, to Radclyffe Hall's The Well of Loneliness, a pioneering novel on lesbian themes published in 1928 ... and from Jane Sharp, the British midwife who published The Midwive's Book - the first textbook of its kind - in 1671, to Mary Baker Eddy, who published Science and Health, the cornerstone of the new Christian Science faith, in 1875 ... and thousands of others
