Rosie the Riveter



although she is a fictional character, she is the representation of women workers in 1940s, during WWII. This iconic figure changed the minds of Americans such that women can work, join the army, and not just look pretty. This figure not only pave way to more freedom for women but although help the war by working in the assembly line (factories to mass produce weapons, tanks, bombs) and promote the purchase of bonds (of course using their womenly charms)

**btw if she doesnt count plz tell me~~
so i can pick a new women. imo rosie made a huge impact in history for women in america**

Policarpa Salavarrieta (Colombia)

It is undoubtedly the best known and popular heroine for Colombians. Image represents the other female, almost opposite to the traditional: the feisty, active, brave. It is the only female figure who comes immediately to mind the period of independence, although it is known that there were many women who suffered the same fate, and many, also participated actively in different ways in the struggles patriots.

Mother Theresa


She establishing the Missionaries of Charity in 1950 with just 13 members, eventually it would grow to a staff of 4,000 nuns who would run dozens of orphanages, AIDS hospices, and charity centers worldwide. Her work quickly came to the attention of the international community as well, inspiring countless other organizations to follow her example in many third world countries helping the poor and societies’ “undesirables.” Her establishment of a hospice for dying destitutes in 1979 eventually won her a Nobel Peace Prize. She cared when no one else would, she had a large heart and never gave up.

Eleanor was one of the wealthiest and most powerful women in Europe and the world during the High Middle Ages. Eleanor inherited the Duchy of Aquitaine and Poitiers after her father’s death when she was only 15. Eleanor became Queen Consort to Louis VII of France in 1137. During her marriage to Louis, she participated in the Second Crusade in 1147 and even traveled with her husband to the Byzantine Empire.
Unlike many other monarchs and women of the Middle Ages, Eleanor is credited for having transformed Aquitaine into one of the largest intellectual and cultural centers in Medieval Western Europe.
