Gen. Jeanne Holm, the first woman to achieve the rank of major general in the US Air Force; Rep. Patsy Mink (D) of Hawaii, the first Asian-American woman elected to the US Congress; and the Rev. Addie Wyatt, the first African-American woman elected president of the United Packinghouse Food and Allied Workers Union.
