Kirthi wrote an article about historical coverage of women and it was published as part of the World Pulse Story Awards program.  She tells a childhood story of being assigned to write a paper about a male historical figure.  The teacher only offered the names of two women but included thirty-seven men as possible topics to the entire class.
