Inscrutable (adj)

Today is June 20, 2018. On this day in 1895, Caroline Willard Baldwin became the first woman to earn a doctorate in science from and American university. Also in the annals of woman’s history, today was the day in 1893 that Lizzie Borden, a much less distinguished woman, was acquitted of ax-murdering her parents in Fall River, Massachusetts. Finally, in 1863 on this day, West Virginia became the thirty-fifth state.
