Queen Elizabeth I
Born to a great King and a mother who brought about the Reformation, Henry VIII’s youngest daughter made her reign a much more calmer affair than those of both her father and her elder sister.
She promoted exploration of the seas in order to discover new lands, which precipitated British domination on the world stage. 
Much less inclined to bloodshed than her father and sister, Queen Elizabeth maintained a relatively safe balance between Protestants and Catholics. Devoting herself to her reign and her people, she died without  producing an heir to the throne, thereby ending the Tudor dynasty (Father would not have been pleased!) 

These women of the Sixties and Seventies took to the streets and fought in courts of law to procure access to contraception and safe medical terminations for us.
You don’t have to agree with abortion, but just because you don’t believe in it doesn’t mean that it should be denied to those who truly need it.
Who would wish a return to girls and women dying in dirty kitchens from botched abortions? Who would look at a fellow woman, a victim of rape, and force her to carry a child that she may not want? And what madness is going on in the world that a woman suffers the tragedy of a miscarriage and is held criminally accountable? 
We have fought long and hard for these rights. There are people in positions of power who want to take these away from you, want us to return to a position of subordination and dependency. Don’t let them!

“In the winter of 2011, photographer and furniture designer Ana Kraš flew from her home in Belgrade, Serbia, to Los Angeles, where she’d been sent by a European magazine to photograph artist-musician Devendra Banhart. Within five minutes, he asked her to marry him. Despite her initial impulse to flee, she stayed—and the two have been together ever since.”
