10 Exceptional Women That Changed the World

“The most courageous act is still to think for yourself. Aloud.”

There is a quote by Harriet Beecher Stowe that says “Women are the real architects of society”. Women have gone through so much through the history, and we made remarkable progress.

Many remarkable women changed the history, and many remarkable women will change the future.
