When you get old and start knowing and getting acquainted with the world, your mom is not the only inspirational woman of your life. You must have always heard that behind every successful man, there is a woman. Let me tell you how exactly it is.

Please know that a woman is not only the reason of a successful man, but a successful society. As Obiageli Ezekwesili says, “A society that will not honor its women, is a society that will be lost in the woods, for a long time.” Nothing truer has been said yet.  

There are 10 women, whose efforts, thoughts, and outlook changed the world they lived in forever.  

1. Mother Teresa (1910-1997) 


Selflessness and charity personified, Mother Teresa was a nun who devoted her life in the service of the wretched and the poor. She received a noble prize in 1979.

Famous saying: “Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies.” 

2. Marilyn Monroe  

If Mother Teresa was selflessness personified, Marilyn Monroe was the beauty personified. Her real name was Norma Jean Baker, and she was one of those rare women who very successfully attracted all the eyes and spotlights on herself, snatching all the attention from the male actors due to her extremely good looks and extraordinary acting skills.
Famous saying: “Women who seek to be equal with men lack ambition.” 

3. Princess Diana  


If someone has utilized her celebrity status perfectly, it is Princess Diana. She is indeed an inspirational example of how having everything for yourself is not the end of the purpose of your life. Instead, she made her marriage into the royal family a beginning and helped destitutes and needy in whatever way she could.  

Famous saying: “Carry out a random act of kindness, with no expectation of reward, safe in the knowledge that one day someone might do the same for you.” 

4. Marie Curie  


She is the first woman to win a noble prize and the only woman to win it twice for her exceptional research in radioactivity. She was both, a physicist and a chemist, whose theory of radioactivity changed a lot in the study of Chemistry.

Famous Saying: “Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less.”
5. Florence Nightingale 


Florence Nightingale was the head of nurses in the Crimean War. Herself a nurse, she is recognized as the founder of modern nursing today. She is famously known as “the lady of the lamp”.

Famous saying: “How very little can be done under the spirit of fear.” 
6. Malala Yousufzai

She is the woman who made her fight against human rights an international movement. Her experiences under Taliban occupancy moved the world and the global attention that her distress got, proved to be fatal for her as Taliban tried murdering her. After that she moved to the UK and has become a name synonymous to human rights now.

Famous saying: “We realize the importance of our voices only when we are silenced.” 

7. Aung Sang Suu Kyi  


She is known for her peaceful resistance to the Burmese military when she was house arrested in 1989, to bring Democracy in Burma. A Burmese politician, she has become an inspirational figure worldwide and is celebrated Nobel Prize winner.

Famous saying: “It is not power that corrupts but fear. Fear of losing power corrupts those who wield it and fear of the scourge of power corrupts those who are subject to it.” 

8. Simon de Beauvoir  


She is the very first name one associates with feminism. Her theories of feminism and existentialism influenced many women writers and activists worldwide and developed a strong feminist theory for the succeeding generations. Her book The Second Sex tells how women are not the “other” in the gender politics.

Famous saying: “One is not born, but rather becomes a woman.”  

9. Hellen Keller  


An author, she proved the world that physical disabilities can never come in between you and your ambition. Becoming an inspiration for the people with disabilities, she was the first blind and deaf person to earn a Bachelor degree in Arts.

Famous Saying: “Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.” 

10. Anne Frank  


She was a Jewish victim of the holocaust of the World War II. Her The Diary of a Young Girl records her struggles while hiding from the Nazis during the holocaust. She was able to evade the Germans for 2 years but were finally found out and killed, just like other Jews. Her diary was published posthumously.

Famous saying: “How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.”
