Women always stood out from the general society in the world. Even if it was duty, responsibility, care and love, the sisterhood kept them going.
Here are a few of the top women in the world who made a change in their own space.
1. Like a boss
The top two IQ scores ever recorded belonged to women.
One of those women is the renowned author and columnist, Marilyn vos Savant. To this day, she is the Guinness World Record holder for “highest IQ.”
Today, if you have a high IQ, you’re called a ‘savant’. #MarieForQueen
2. She’s got great chemistry!
Marie Curie, the first woman to be awarded a Nobel prize, discovered radium and helped create the first-ever ambulances.
She never patented her work – deciding it was for humanity, and not for personal gain.
3. Fly me to the moon
Margaret Heafield was the director of software engineering for NASA’s Apollo space program. She wrote the mathematical sequence that enabled the Apollo moon landing to be successful.
4. Hit me with your best shot
Stephanie Kwolek was an American chemist who invented Kevlar, the material used most famously bulletproof vests and body armor – but also for planes, boats and tyres.
Ada Lovelace was an English mathematician and writer – and the first to recognize that a computer could do more than just calculations. She became the first ever programmer in the world as a result.
6. The OG head of state
Sirimavo Bandaranaike became the world’s first female prime minister in 1960.
7. Long live the ladies!
In almost every country in the world, the life expectancy for women is higher than men. Scientists believe it might have to do with estrogen improving immune function.
8. The Kiwi to Success
The first country to grant women the right to vote in the modern era was New Zealand in 1893.
9. Wipe away your worries
The windshield wiper was invented in 1903 by Mary Anderson.
10. No Fabulous?
In 1770, the British parliament proposed banning lipstick – because it had the power to seduce men, which was considered witchcraft. Thankfully, that law was binned.
11. Go Coco!
Love your Little Black Dress? It was invented by Coco Chanel.
12. Young, Wild and Free
At 14, Malala Yousafzai became the youngest person ever to win the Nobel Peace Prize.
The list of the Top Women in the World could not be limited to this list, but here is a heads up for you to know that there is nothing stopping you because you are a woman.
Women around the world have worked at their fullest potential to change how the world thinks. Stay Happy – Stay Confident!
