Question of the Day

Nov 09, 2016

Yesterday we asked: Many predict Hillary Clinton to become the first woman elected to be President of the United States today. But she'd hardly be the first woman elected by her people to be a country's head of state. Who was?

Answer: Sirivamo Bandaranaike of Sri Lanka, 1960. Congrats to David Daniel with the correct answer, honorable mention to Ron Casalotti who guessed second.

Your question of the day for today is: Who coined the term "fascism" and what does its root Latin word "fasces" mean?

As always, click here to tweet your answer to @MuckRack. We’ll announce the winners tomorrow!
