The most inspirational women in history, by Marie Claire.

Cleopatra

‘I will not be triumphed over.’

 

Rosa Parks

‘I would like to be remembered as a person who wanted to be free… so other people would be also free.’

 

Mary Wollstonecraft

‘If women be educated for dependence; that is, to act according to the will of another fallible being, and submit, right or wrong, to power, where are we to stop?’
