Women Who Changed the World

With the inspiration of Women Who Changed the World by Ros Horton there is a listing of 50 Women who changed the world.

Starting off Sapho and Cleopatra it is a chronological listing of women who have influenced the world in some significant way; either through literature, music, politics or science.

As with any top 50 list it is possible to find some notable omissions. One could make a good case for notable figures of ancient India such as Radha (devotee of Krishna) or Sita (wife of Sri Ramachandra of the Ramayana). The mother of Jesus, Mary could easily have been given a place.

Despite inevitable difficulties of choosing a top 50, it is interesting to see the diversity of such a list.
