Top 10 standout historical women

There’s nothing we love more than a woman who is willing to take a chance and do something frigging unbelievable. The following list examines women in history who’ve had gigantic lady-balls big enough to spar with even the toughest of men — and win. They’ve done everything from rule nations to fly planes to question authority at the risk of losing their lives. These women have faced adversity greater than some of us may ever know, but they’ve always come out on top and they continue to inspire. And if Aung San Suu Kyi or Indira Gandhi are any sort of example, maybe one day we’ll actually see our first female American president. Or maybe we’ll have to keep fighting for that one until that mythical glass ceiling shatters into a million tiny pieces. Feeling moved by these daring women? You’ll be just as amazed watching four new daring women in history on PUSH GIRLS, where disabilities stop no woman.

10. Amelia Earhart:
This one’s a given. This lady, with all her guts and glory, was the first woman to ever fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean. And that’s not all — she was an author, an educator, a feminist and a pioneer when it came to aviation and adventure.

Though she may have been lost at sea on her attempt to fly around the world, and the mystery of the trip still haunts us all, no one could deny what a total badass she was.
