Women in history

Starting with the Ancient period, briefly going into the Medieval period, then introducing the European Age of Discovery and the Enlightment, and finally emphasising on the Industrial Revolution period, as well as the 20th century, our history classes have given us the broad lines of History. 

Some events, as well as some figures are familiar, thanks to our history classes, but also because of cultural representations. Among those figures, how many women can we name ? 

In this section, I am introducing women who have had a considerable impact on our civilizations and our History throughout the world. I am also interested in groups of women, or women whose names we have no trace of, but also whose voices, whose actions and whose role in historical events has only been a footnote.
