Jeannette Rankin, at age 36, was the first woman elected to the U.S. Congress. Jeannette was a pacifist and voted against World War I and World War II in Congress. After leaving office she also opposed the Korean War, and the Vietnam War. "You can no more win a war than you can win an earthquake," Rankin said.
