Here we have added a selection of famous left handed people from around the world. Famous lefties from sports to politics to entertainment to science.
If we missed anyone, let us know.
A few facts…
*Left-handers suffered severe prejudice during the 18th and 19th centuries and it was often “beaten out” of people.
*In adulthood, left-handers were often shunned by society, resulting in fewer marrying and reproducing.
*As prejudice slowly declined in the 20th century, the number of natural left-handers who stayed left-handed increased,
*The rising age of motherhood contributed as, statistically, older mothers are more likely to give birth to left-handed children.
