Sonora Dodd, Founder Of Father's Day
"My great grandmother is Sonora Dodd. She was an artist and free-thinker at a time when women “just didn’t do that." She was raised by her father and decided that fathers needed a day honoring them just as mothers did. She worked tirelessly to push the holiday forward despite initial lack of acceptance and even ridicule. She believed in her ideas and never wavered from them."
