Sophie Scholl, from the anti-Nazi resistance group The White Rose. She was executed in 1943 when she was 21.

(It can also be someone awful who you find interesting!)

Harking back to my family, a not so distant female cousin apparently blew up a Nazi cafe and was executed. I don't know her name alas.

Most of my Polish family were in the resistance.

There's such a lack of fabulous women in mainstream history, it's no wonder certain female monarchs get all the attention.

Speaking of which Catherine the Great was QUITE the leader.

For what it's worth, I don't think the history forum will (or should) be any more out of bounds for nonsense than elsewhere on Moopy. So I'd make peace with that quickly
That's fine, but we have a Eurovision forum and it's rather exhausting so many references in here.

Just to get a female artist in: Artemisia Gentileschi

Forced to marry the man that raped her, she spent her life making very ANGRY paintings, including several versions of Judith beheading Holofernes with a supreme coldness in her face :disco:

Oh I remembered that slightly wrong - he refused to marry her so her dad took him to court and he got exiled and she married someone else. But STILL. CUNT!
