    Question TEN FOR TUESDAY

    ...Wow....Thanksgiving this Monday really threw me off!!! I forgot that today was Tuesday and quiz day. We had an "It's a Man's World" quiz so today I decided it would be "Ladies First"! Have fun and remember the theme!!!




    1. Forced to mold the death masks of famous guillotine victims during the reign of terror, this famous French woman was the first to lay her hands on those unlucky heads of state and society. What was her name?
    2. Who is the woman who became the first female to be first lady of more than one country?
    3. Who was the first woman in space?
    4. Who was the first female member to serve in the British House of Commons?
    5. Who was the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic?
    6. Who was the world’s first female Prime Minister?
    7. Which world famous and caring Italian born female was the first woman to be awarded the British 'Order of Merit' in 1908 ?
    8. Lisa Clayton was the first woman to sail single handed and non stop around the world. She set sail from England in September 1994 in the vessel 'Spirit of Birmingham'. Plus or minus 30 days, how long did the circumnavigation take ? (I know you don't know...just take a guess!)
    9. Although an outspoken opponent of circumcision, the first female M.D. in the USA was famous for her motto 'prevention is better than cure'. What was her name ?
    10. Who was the first woman to climb Mount Everest?
