3. An interesting woman

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alice_Duer_Miller

At the time of her entrance into society, her family lost most of its fortune. She entered Barnard College in 1895 studying mathematics and astronomy. She helped to pay for her studies by selling novels and short essays. She and her sister Caroline King Duer published a joint book of poems. . . .

She became known as a campaigner for women's suffrage and published a brilliant series of satirical poems in the New York Tribune. These were published subsequently as Are Women People?. These words became a catchphrase of the suffrage movement. She followed this collection with Women are People! (1917).

As a novelist, she scored her first real success with Come Out of the Kitchen in 1916. The story was made into a play and later the 1948 film Spring in Park Lane. She followed it with a series of other short novels, many of which were staged and (increasingly) made into films.

5. Interesting, and a great middle name - if she was alive today, I hope she'd

make it come true...

6. I first read your subject line as "feminist shark" - which would have been

quite interesting, but this is better. Great find!
