Jane Goodall was told she was 'just a girl.' But grew up to redefine mankind
Jane Goodall, world renowned for her landmark study on chimpanzees, was once dismissed as being "just a girl" when she shared her ambition of moving to Africa to work with animals. Goodall was speaking last week at the 2019 One Young World summit in London about her lifelong career working with some of the most endangered species on Earth. Goodall said it was her mother who provided her with the best advice to overcome these dismissive remarks.

It was upon this discovery that Leakey said: "Now we must redefine 'tool,' redefine 'man' or accept chimpanzees as humans."cnbc.com
