Women who Changed History

Categories: History

There are women who are truly worthy of respect and admiration. They change history, go all-in, are not afraid of any changes, nor the ridicule of society, nor the dangers to life. They fly into the sky and even into space, voluntarily go into captivity with their beloved husbands, bravely save children and ... calmly drink tea on the ruins of their house. Such people play an important role in every era, and there are many women worthy of respect and memory in every segment of history. It is to such women that this post is dedicated.
