Get ready for International Women’s Day ladies! Tomorrow, March 8th, people around the world will celebrate the achievements of women and push to improve equal rights.
I could argue that we deserve more than a mere day, but hey, why ruin the party?
Strollerderby is celebrating by taking a look at some powerful, kickass women, including both historical figures and fictional female characters. We appreciate their intelligence, courage, perseverance and willingness to stand their ground in a world in which men made the rules. Some are queens, some are warriors, one is a witch and another was nicknamed Moses.
This list is by no means exhaustive. We also could have included Nefertiti, Susan B. Anthony, Queen Victoria, Indira Gandhi, Sarah Connor, Esther, Sheherazade, Elizabeth Bennet and so many more, but we simply wanted to get the ideas flowing.
Which of the following women inspire you the most, if any? Who would you add?
