Oprah Winfrey
By: Bianca G.
Massachusetts, Grade 4



I think Oprah Winfrey should be in the Womens Hall of Fame because she was a major force in drafting,lobbying and passage of the National Child Protection Act,signed into law by President Clinton [in 1994]. In 1984 when she became host of 'AM Chicago',a local tv talk show. It was renamed 'The Oprah Winfrey Show' in 1985. She has given money to schools and shelters for abused women. I think Oprah should be in the Womens Hall of Fame for all of her success.
