Queen Cleopatra was a powerful ruler of Egypt, Rani Lakshmibai ruled the princely state of Jhansi defying the British regime. Get where I am going with this? 😉

Helen Keller achieved success in life even without the most basic senses (sight and hearing) that we take for granted. Helen never fails to lift my spirits up when I need the inspiration!

Rani Lakshmibai, Mother Teresa, Helen Keller, Harriet Beecher Stowe and countless others continue to give inspiration to many even now.

Extreme limitations and boundaries

Extreme bias

Women faced extreme bias in the past and the bias continues even today to some extent. Treated as objects at times, women have smashed all barriers to show their true strength.

Though women were expected to be confined to the kitchens, they have proven their mettle beyond doubt, by conquering the world through their remarkable lives.

Left in the shadows in the past

Second-class citizens

Even though faced with seemingly insurmountable barriers on all fronts, social, financial, racial and gender bias, these women have broken all those shackles and emerged successful while creating history in the process. Women have proven beyond doubt that they are not second-class citizens and are equals.

Modern day woman

Now we have women working in all fields including extremely male-dominated ones like piloting an aircraft. We have women traveling solo to different parts of the world, volunteering for various causes and contributing to the welfare of humanity.

More and more women are finding their voice and becoming independent. This is surely what we want as a society. Because, when a woman is happy, the family is happy. When the family is happy, their neighbors, their town, their county will be a happier place. This is a philosophy I truly believe in.

Supportive men

At present, many men have become cognizant of women’s struggles and are supporting women in all aspects. I would say they are raised by great women. Don’t you agree? I find this scenario highly desirable and admirable.

Even so, some situations do exist where women are all alone and are left to fend for themselves and even their children at times. These women without losing their spirit, show what they are made of to the world. They lead excellent and fulfilling lives.

Many ladies who sacrifice their career to stay-at-home and care for their children while their partners work, are no less. They are even more inspirational to me.

Without doubt, it is truly a daunting task juggling jobs and taking care of the household. These women are truly inspirational and motivate us to face any challenge head-on.

  1. I think bias against women does still exist in this day and age, but we continue to prove that we are not just equal, but better than men at times. Thank you for writing and sharing this post.

  2. “At the end of the day, we can endure much more than we think we can”-Frida Kahlo
    Loved this post! We have endured much throughout history and we still endure injustice in the 21st century. All the women pictured above are inspirational, but there are many more that have fought and still fight today that are not pictured or are not famous but are equally inspirational.

  3. I think that there has always been men that are biased against women. It’s something that happens in every culture…some more than others. I believe that God created woman to be a complement for man… not a slave to them. God also intended for man to be respectful to women and assign them honor. But sadly, we live in a world where few live by bible principles and feel that it is their right to belittle women no matter the cost. The women you listed were beautiful and both overcame and accomplished so much despite many obstacles.
