Throughout history, women have made extraordinary contributions to their societies. Some are well known, some less so, but all have been trailblazers. United Nations wants to celebrate International Women’s Day with an interactive timeline spotlighting remarkable women through the ages.
Explore a small selection of these women and learn what the reality still is today for many women and girls worldwide.
For International Women’s Day a group of artists that go by the name of Monday begins on Saturday have launched Remarkable Women in History to celebrate amazing women, who, if not changed the course of human history, definitively influenced the world we are living in today.
The artists want to underline how difficult it is for women even nowadays to follow their passion, build a successful career and at the same time have a fulfilled private life. Very few women, despite all the odds of the male-dominated society, managed to make a contribution to the humanity and raise talented children and have a family.
Celebrate and admire all those amazing women with us today!
