This week's ZV beauty is Miss Florence Nightingale.
Born May 12th 1820, she is best known as the founder of modern nursing. Florence was an icon of Victorian culture, especially in the persona of "The Lady with the Lamp" making rounds of wounded soldiers at night but she was so much more! Florence was a social reformer who fought for women’s rights, a statistician who pioneered graphical statistics, and a prolific author. She wrote extensively about her medical knowledge in a way that was easy for even the undereducated of the day to understand. Posthumously, much of her musing about mysticism and religion have been published adding to her mystique!
You'll never be forgotten for all the contributions you made to improve the world around you!
