Let us hope that President Faust, in particular, has more luck with her contentious, childish, self-absorbed faculty than her predecessor.

First females continues.

Country - Turkey
 
 
  • First female doctor -- Safiye Ali: Treated war-wounded in the Turkish War of Independence, the Balkan Wars (of 1912/13), and in WW I.

  • 1920 -- Süreyya Agaoğlu: First female to enroll in Law School -- at Istanbul University. As a full-fledged lawyer, Süreyya Hanım, defended her own father (law professor Ahmet Agaoğlu) at a famous trial on Yassıada island in the Sea of Marmara.

  • 1921 -- Seven (unnamed) female students enrolled in Medical School.

  • June 1923 -- Nezihe Muhittin: Established the first women's political party (Kadınlar Halk Fırkasıi -- The People's Party for Women). The Voting Rights bill of 1909 had given Turkish women the right to vote, but it took 14 years before a woman of Nezihe Hanım's courage came on the scene to galvanize a large block of women voters -- and make them a force to be reckoned with.

  • 1936 -- Sabiha Gökçen: first female warplane pilot -- not just in Turkey... in the World. A protégé of Ataturk, Sabiha Hanım graduated from War-Aviation Flying School in Eskisehir.

  • 1950 -- Müfide İlhan: first female Belediye Başkan (Big City Mayor) elected to office in Mersin.

  • 1957 -- Doctor Sema Aran: First female Army Officer. First Lieutenant Aran was commissioned just after to the Korean War.

  • 1958 -- Leman Altınçekiç: First accredited female Aircraft Carrier pilot in the world. Preceded Lieutenant Kara Spears Hultgreen (first female American Aircraft pilot) by almost 40 years.

  • 1971 -- Prof. Dr. Türkan Akyol: First woman Minister in the Turkish government (who later became the first woman President of a Turkish university).

  • 1982 -- Filiz Dinçmen: First Turkish female Ambassador to a foreign county (Holland).

  • 1991 -- Lale Aytaman: First female Governor of a Turkish regional province (Muğla).

  • 1993 -- Tansu Çiller: First female Prime Minister (from the DYP party).

  • 1996 -- First (unnamed) female Naval Officers graduate from Turkish Naval War School.

  • 2005 -- Tülay Tuğcu: First Anayasa Mahkemesi Başbakan (Chief Justice of the Constitutional Supreme Court).

  • 2007 -- Arzuhan Doğan Yalçındağ: First female President of the Turkish Industrialists' and Businessmen's Association (TÜSİAD -- which is broadly akin to the US Chamber of Commerce).

    Magnetic face with very serious, I'd say even tragic eyes - that know the price of life, I suppose.

    Zoe Porphyrogenita was wanted as a bride by the Emperor of the West Otto III who most unfortunately died befofe the marriage could be contracted. One cannot avoid thinking - what if the West and East were conneceted with a series of dynastic marriages, may be then Constantinople wouldn't fall in 1453.

    Well DQ..we have had and still have our differences. But one thing is fer sure..your no fool when it comes to picking the winners among the fairer sex. Yes..yes I know that sounds condescending and all but ya already know I don't care about that. I'm a CAV Trooper and when it comes to the women's I'm a traditionalist. You think this is bad you should have met me on the Llano when I was 15.
     
    Holy Hesus Christus I was gorgeousssssss then.....LOL 
     
    The ladies above were tough, responsible and god damn good at what they were about according to all sources. And even though my confirmation and approval is not a requirement for you...I concur.
     
     
    They remind me of Elanor of A...and Boudicca and tough bitches like Margaret the Thatcher, Eleanor Roosevelt and Edith Wilson. I might not like their politics and or think they were socialist types waste of my time...BUT...they were tough. And I respect that.

    better than that failure pres of a husband of hers.....i'll grant that.

    But she's a liberal hence no sale for me. I will give her credit for emphasis on childhood obesity....but I gave Laura B cudos for her emphasing education...

    damn shame the liberals wouldn't.

    but if ya want impressive black women.....then I give cudos to rosa parks and the sisters before her eg. ella baker.

    Without them..... Michelle remains merely a fart in the north wind.

    Amen.

    First (and only) woman awarded the Medal of Honor – Dr. Mary E. Walker for her work as a physician on the battlefield and in military hospitals during the Civil War. Her medal was rescinded in 1917, but restored in 1977. Dr. Walker was also the first female surgeon employed by the US Army, and the first female POW, captured by the Confederates on April 10th 1864 and kept in military prison for four months.

    First female members of the military killed in the line of duty – Nurse Edith Ayres and Nurse Helen Wood, on 20th May 1917 on board the USS Mongolia en route to France. They were killed by the ship’s crew when a practice drill went wrong and one of the deck guns exploded, sending shell fragments into the bodies of the two young nurses.
