Marie Claire’s 100 most inspirational women
Clockwise from top left: Emmeline Pankhurst, Josephine Baker, Marie Curie and Mary Pickford
Why she inspires us: Although she wasn’t perfect, she demanded equality for woman as the leader of the suffragette movement. Her efforts led to the vote being granted to some women (those over the age of 30 who owned property or were married to a man who owned property) in 1918.
What she taught us: Underestimate the power of a fearless woman at your peril – suffragettes threw themselves under horses, chained themselves to railings and starved themselves for the right to vote.
Why she inspires us:Ederle was the first woman to swim the English Channel – and she did it wearing motorcycle goggles…
What she taught us:True grit: ‘I knew it could be done, it had to be done, and I did it.’
Why she inspires us:Having lost her sight and hearing at a young age, Keller defied expectations to achieve a bachelor’s degree and inspired generations as an activist for disability rights.
What she taught us:Keller refused to live life as a typical ‘invalid’. In her own words: ‘Life is either a great adventure or nothing.’
Why she inspires us:Prevented from holding a pilot’s licence in the US due to the fact that she was both black and a woman, Coleman moved to France and became the first woman of African-American and Native American descent to earn an aviation pilot’s licence.
What she taught us:Sometimes, thinking outside the box and bending the rules is the best way to achieve your dreams.
