I read the thread. It's about a woman with ostentatious lineage who turned out, by all accounts, to be a pretty good engineer.

The Wikipedia article is pretty good, she fought for years to get her chief engineer license, and the examiners admitted they failed her because of her gender.

No, I got all that, I'm just trying to find the heroic part.

Well you could have just said, "She was a woman, and every woman who ever lived is a hero," in the first place.
