A Blog Celebrating The Women History Forgot

"Well-Behaved Women Rarely Make History."
These women misbehaved, but where are they in our history books?
Temple Grandin was  diagnosed with autism when she was not able to speak at age 3. Although her parents were urged to send her to an institution, they refused, and instead  sent her to a private school where her high IQ was nurtured. She has taught at Colorado State University in Fort Collins since 1990.
While in high school she created a “squeeze machine” which has since been fine-tuned and is used both for autistic children and adults, as a way of relieving high anxiety. She has also written several books on the subjects of autism and animal behaviors.
