Patchwork or Quilt?
In a patchwork of patriarchal societies like we have on this
planet, women often go unnoticed and under recognized. Even
in today's modern world there are still some countries like
India and China where birthing a boy is more "valued"
than birthing a girl.
Social, political and economic realities have weighed heavily
on most societies since civilized mankind began. The famous
women listed on this site, resisted, broke through barriers,
crushed glass ceilings and otherwise had an impact on the
world as we now know it.
Just in the last 2 centuries the Women's Suffrage Movement
in the 18th to 20th centuries, the Women's Liberation Movement
starting in the 1960's and the Feminist Movement to follow
from the 1990's to today have shown many female leaders in
thought and action.
These pages are a celebration of the notable females in history
who have shaped our world progressively for the betterment
of all people. These pages are not a statement on equal rights
or gender equality although these items will com e into plan.
In Conclusion ...
Famous women in history need to be celebrated for their forward
thinking, contributions, desire and action to make a positive
impact amongst the societies in which they live and their
long-lasting implications of today. So, check out the information
