“You say that you are my judge; I do not know if you are; but take good heed not to judge me ill, because you would put yourself in great peril”. This quote from Joan of Arc shows only a fragment of the courage and heroism displayed throughout her lifetime. Jehanne d’Arc was born in 1412 in Domrémy-la-Pucelle, France. This was a time of internal war between two factions of the French royal family, sparking an English desire to reinvade. Joan of Arc was an influential and widely celebrated world leader who left a lasting impact in the lives of people all over the world due to her significance in the 100 Years War, sacrifices for the Roman Catholic church as well as the people of France, and her stance for female courage of martyrdom and to pursue a righteous cause.
St. Joan of Arc was then escorted to Chinon as a male soldier for safety. She asked Charles VII to travel to Orléans with the army and he later accepted. The army then won the battle at Orléans and went into many more battles, and they also made a truce with the English. Soon after the truce with England Joan was captured by Burgundian troops, and was sentenced to die in 1431. She had been tied to a pillar and was burned.
From writing books to writing in newspapers. Paulina Wright Davis started the first journals made for women, Una (Una is the latin word unum, which means one). Maybe other women wrote some great books and changed people's lives. For example The Bonte Sisters written by Jane Austen. The Bonte Sisters was a great book that talked about how these three sisters had to work many jobs and suffer to get money to help their families, This book shows us the importance of women and how they always work hard and try to achieve all their goals although sometimes the community makes it impossible because they never provide things that women need , for example education or jobs they were always rarely found in a community that never understood the meaning of women.
St. Joan of Arc is often referred to as a French war heroine, and one of the many patronesses of France. Jehanne is said to be Joan’s true first name, although her last name is unknown. Joan or Jehanne’s real birthdate is unknown, but she was born in 1412 in Domremy, France. This particular patroness was known to have a volatile temper and tended to get upset easily.

Again, in the book, Eleanor has just given birth to her second daughter and her husband, Louis is upset because he does not think that France can be led by a woman. Because of this, Eleanor decides she wants a divorce. This is because she believes that a woman can run France and that women are just as capable as men. Then, five years later she finally gets an annulment, but according to how an annulment works "An annulment,... treats the marriage as though it never existed" (Annulment, Wikipedia). Therefore, an annulment is not possible because they have two kids and their kids will keep the marriage from being erased from history, because the kids are still considered the results of a marriage that is not supposed to exist anymore.
Both children continued a relationship with Parr after Henry's death. Because of her religious leanings, as well as Henry's viewpoints of a woman ruling, Parr was not granted any political power from Henry when it came to the reign of Edward VI, but this did not stop Parr from using the relationship to her advantage. She used the boy's affections for her to secure herself a marriage to a younger uncle of Edward's, Sir Thomas Seymour, the man that Parr had loved for many years. She even went as far as utilizing Edward's feelings for her into making him think that her marriage to Seymour was his idea. In a letter to Parr, Edward writes of his appreciation of her "gentle acceptance of our suit," and promises he "will provide for you both that hereafter, if any grief be fall."

Previously stated in paragraph 9 it states,”It was a job, perhaps just fifteen years old had been training for since her earliest days by her father's side.” This shows she must be confident to be taking such an important role only fifteen years old. In conclusion Hatshepsut was very confident and bold in her decisions which made her a great pharaoh.

According to About.com, after a few marches around nineteen twelve, Paul left NAWSA in nineteen fourteen as she co-founded the Congressional Union, later starting the National Woman 's Party in nineteen sixteen.

There, they were brutally treated and one was reported to be killed as they were sent to unsanitary, frigid, rat-infested cells regardless of age.
I believe Abigail Adams thought citizens should govern. I believe this because Abigail Adams was and still is a hero and idle for many women in the United States.
