Ilona Zrinyi

She was a hungarian countess and played an important role in the uprising against the Habsburg dynasty in the 17th century.
She defended her home and last castle for 2 years and managed to get amnesty for her remaining defenders after the suppression of the uprising.
I choose her because she symbolizes the independent woman warrior, who can protect her people and her beliefs alone.

Jeanne Manford

Founded PFLAG in 1972 while marching with her son in a Liberation march in New York.

This led to the creation of similar groups all over the US. PFLAG stand for "Parents, Families, and Friends of Lesbians and Gays."

The group offers support for , just as their name implies, the LGBT community by helping to educate people, and spread awareness throughout the community.

Maria Josefa Gabriela Cariño Silang (Gabriela Silang) MArch 19,1731 - September 20,1763

Named as The First female general of the Philippines and The first Female Martyr of the Philippines. After her husband died, Diego Silang. She continued his will and led the revolution against the Spanish Colony. Unfortunately she was defeated by the Strong Spanish army and was executed on September 20, 1763. I chose her because of her patriotism and bravery. She fought for the freedom of the Filipinos even she was a girl. Her acts also triggered the sleeping minds and hearts of other Filipinos to unite and fight for their freedom. A truly remarkable woman in History.

The braveness and love of Oichi *-*
Few women in Japanese history have quite the pathos of Oichi, a sister of Oda Nobunaga reknowned for her beauty. She was initially was married to Shibata Katsuie after the latter begged pardon for an abortive rebellion in 1557.
In 1583, following Nobunaga's death, Shibata Katsuie and Toyotomi Hideyoshi went to war over the issue of succession. Katsuie's army was crushed at Shizugatake in the hills of northern Ômi, and the old general himself (who had not been present at the battle) shut himself up in Ichi no tani with the intention of committing suicide. He begged Oichi to take her daughters and flee but to no avail. Oichi did send her daughters into Hideyoshi's care, but stayed herself to die with Katsuie as his castle was engulfed in flames.

      Queen Elizabeth the First, although I'm sure she has been posted already. She remained a virgin until death, choosing instead to be a mother to the people of her country and, through the personal motto of "I see, and say nothing" was a more moderate, tolerant ruler than her predecessors had been before her. Her rule fostered the talents of significant figures of history like William Shakespeare and Christopher Marlowe by allowing the flourishing of English dramas and was heralded as the "Elizabethan Era".

      Her refusal to marry and birth an heir makes her an inspiration to women everywhere who seek to break free from their predetermined roles and her refusal to back down in the face of the Spanish Armada led to one of the most famous victories in all of English history because she would not forsake what she stood for and fought for her country. To this day her reign is still viewed as a breath of welcome stability after years of unrest and what helped England to form a sense of national unity and identity.

Jane Austen


Jane Austen wrote some of the most important canons in english-language literature, such as "Pride and Prejudice", "Sense and Sensibility" and "Emma". But more than that, she wrote at a time female writters were a rare sight and helped, with her writing style full of biting social commentary, carve the way for the female view of the world to enter literature.

I choose Tomoe-gozen (1157?–1247)


(artist's impression by Kikuchi Yōsai (1781-1878))

Because she impacted much of the warrior class including many traditional Naginata schools. Her actions in battle also received much attention in the arts plays such as Tomoe no Monogatari and various ukiyo paintings. As time passed the influence of onna bugeisha (women warrior) saw its way from paintings to politics. She also is believed to have fought and survived the Genpei War (1180–1185).

More about her here!




This is a picture of Fukuteru, a geiko of the Miyagawa district, dressed as her during the Jidai Matsuri.

Mary Wollstonecraft ( 1759 - 1797) is regarded as one of the founding feminist philosophers, and feminists often cite both her life and work as important influences.

She was an eighteenth-century British writer, philosopher, and advocate of women's rights. Wollstonecraft is best known for A Vindication of the Rights of Woman (1792), in which she argues that women are not naturally inferior to men, but appear to be only because they lack education. She suggests that both men and women should be treated as rational beings and imagines a social order founded on reason.
With the emergence of the feminist movement at the turn of the twentieth century, Wollstonecraft's advocacy of women's equality and critiques of conventional femininity became increasingly important.

Wu Zetian

Wu Zetian



She's famously known as the only female Emperor in Chinese history. You can call her Empress, but I'm stating Emperor here because she was the sole supreme ruler and headed the entire nation. She had a strong will, even as a child. What she wanted to do, she will definitely get it done. This showed that, contrary to the severe sexism in the past, women can be strong, and can even rule a huge nation like China quite effectively. During her reign she expanded China's territory and reformed many social ideologies and issues. i.e. genders became more balanced in status.

Yuriko Chiba (千羽 由利子, Chiba Yuriko, born March 9, 1967 in Kumamoto Prefecture)



This lady is one of the number one animation directors and animators in the anime world today. She is one of the founders of the Oriental Light and Magic Company, which is one the premier production companies in Japan. They strive to bring smiles to everyone. “We would love to see the smiling faces of children and adults all over the world. Charming smiles appeal to audiences of all ages and nationalities. How wonderful it would be if audiences smile when they see wonderful images. Our energy is derived from this motivation - to see these smiling faces.” (olm.co.jp)

If you don’t know her and you have watched any anime outside of the old Toonami stuff you probably know her. She has directed and animated a myriad of anime. She is responsible for greats such as Gunsmith Cats, Code Geass, Moblie Suit Gundam 00, Figure 17, and lots of other awesome series. “Yuriko is one of the founders of Oriental Light and Magic and is noted for her work either as character designer or animation director to several highly successful anime series.” (myanimelist.net) Let’s say you haven’t seen any of those and you all only seen anime from cartoon network, did you know that she was a key animator for Inuyasha? (animenewsnetwork) This lady has done so much for the anime world, and helped it to get to where it is today. She has put a lot of hard work into her career, and has become an animation giant. She is listed of the top female animators list. I believe she belongs there and should be a little higher.
