For millennia, women have left their mark on the world, at times changing the course of history and at other times influencing small but significant spheres of life. We have created a short list of some well-known women in history. Their stories are full of adventure, romance, loss, and triumph. Pocahontas for example, who helped establish peace between the Natives and the colonists. Or Harriet Beecher Stowe, who wrote  ”Uncle Tom’s Cabin”  and brought attention to the horrors of slavery. A far-famed name is Marie Curie, a famous chemist and physicist who held many achievements for women. She won the Nobel Prize twice and as influential in the world of chemistry.

Of course there are many more inspirational women in history. Explore Europeana to find out: Marie Curie, Amelia Earhart, Joan Of Arc, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Florence Nightingale, Queen Elizabeth I, Helen Keller, Pocahontas, Queen Isabella, Catherine The Great, Louisa May Alcott, Cleopatra, Mary Magdalene, Hildegard of Bingen, Mary Wollstonecraft, Jane Austen, Rosa Luxemburg, Helena Rubinstein, Coco Chanel, Eleanor Roosevelt, Annie Besant, Billie Holiday, Marilyn Monroe, Anne Frank.
