It seems that women get more attention these days for going naked on Instagram or ranting on Twitter than for their achievements and worth.

Let's forget social media heroines (and I use that word lightly) and meet some incredible women who really did bring value to womanhood and made our world a better place.

1. Lucretia Mott (1793 – 1880)

Lucretia Mott (1793 – 1880)

Lucretia Mott was a Quaker who pioneered much of the early women’s rights movement.

She fought for equal rights for all citizens and in 1833 helped to found the Philadelphia Female Anti-Slavery Society.

She was also one of the principal organizers of the 1848 Seneca Falls Convention which history sees as one of the landmark women’s rights gatherings in the movement.

2. Maya Angelou (1928 – 2014)

Maya Angelou (1928 – 2014)

You would be shocked at just how many young people have no idea who Maya Angelou was.

An acclaimed and respected author and poet, Maya Angelou used her writing to speak out for civil rights and women’s rights in the USA and all over the world.

Her classic poem β€˜I Rise’ is seen as one of the defining messages of female empowerment that has ever been written.

3. Sacagawea (1788 – 1812)

Sacagawea (1788 – 1812)

Sacagawea was a Native American woman who was a member of the Lewis and Clark expedition.

Part of the Shoshone tribe, she married a French fur trapper and her impeccable language skills made her an invaluable member of the expedition team that Jefferson sent out.

Being a Native American woman who was held in great esteem by all, Sacagawea inspired many for generations to come.

4. Madeleine Albright (1937 – P.)

Madeleine Albright (1937 – P.)

Madeleine Albright’s contribution is there for all to see, she became the very first female U.S.

Secretary of State.

When Bill Clinton became President, he recognised Madeleine’s impeccable worth ethic and talent and promoted her to the ground breaking position in 1996.2

Born in what was then Czechoslovakia, Albright often says that becoming an American was the greatest thing that ever happened to her.

Sojourner Truth (1797 – 1883)
