It's always important to know your place in history, to pay respect to those who have come before you and made your dreams more possible to reach. If the strong women on this list had cowered or been less courageous, we wouldn't have Hilary Clinton. We wouldn't have Oprah Winfrey, or even Beyonce. Women throughout history have paved the way for modern feminism and have built a foundation for today's powerful women that can't be ignored 

These women are freedom fighters, suffragettes, and leaders in their fields. These evocative images capture strong feminists who created a path for us today. The fight for equal rights is still an uphill battle but it used to be a mountain.

Let your senses be pleased, your curiosity peaked, and your intellect fed as your eyes and hearts check out these moving photographs of women in history. These women opened doors and set the stage for many powerful women to come and are still inspiring feminist symbols today.
