Rosa Parks was an exceptional woman because she believed in affirmative action. She was a black woman who stood up against racism in the United States: she wanted to be on an equal footing with the white people. One day, she sat in the front of the bus while it was compulsory for black people to sit in the back. This woman did not lack courage. Rosa Parks was arrested by the police but she never stopped fighting for black people's rights. In 1955, that was the starting point of the bus boycott. It was an achievement: new laws were passed making segregation in buses illegal. She reached her goal and received many awards for her struggle. Rosa Parks is an incredible woman.
