    Emma Goldman -- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emma_goldman

    Anarchist, atheist, feminist ...

    She used to live in the same neighborhood which was my favorite in Rochester, New York.



    Emma is such a hero of mine. I have a picture of her hanging on my wall.

    David Wong, regarding Chicago
    Six centuries ago, the pre-Colombian natives who settled here named this region with a word which in their language means "the Mouth of Shadow". Later, the Iroquois who showed up and inexplicably slaughtered every man, woman and child renamed it "Seriously, Fuck that Place". When French explorer Jacques Marquette passed through the area he marked his map with a drawing of a brownish blob emerging from between the Devil's buttocks.

    Emmy Noether is responsible for possibly the most beautiful theorem in theoretical physics. It says that (basically) symmetries in the law pf physics imply associated conservation laws.

    Hatshepsut (1508 to 1458 BC), Pharaoh of Egypt for 22 years, first long ruling female Pharaoh. Despite successful reign she was erased from the historical records and all the monuments and temples of the Pharaohs for 3000 years since this was a traditionally male position and her step son was pissed off for having to wait to take the throne. Instead of just using armies to conquer she sent them south in one of the first great trade missions.

    Ching Shih

    Ching Shih (1775–1844) was a prominent pirate in middle Qing China, who terrorized the China Sea in the early 19th century. She commanded over 300 junks manned by 20,000 to 40,000 pirates another estimate has Cheng's fleet at 1800 and crew at about 80,000 — men, women, and even children. She challenged the empires of the time, such as the British, Portuguese and the Qing dynasty. Undefeated, she would become one of China and Asia's strongest pirates, and one of world history's most powerful pirates. She was also one of the few pirate captains to retire from piracy.


    Nancy Wake

    Nancy Grace Augusta Wake AC, GM (30 August 1912 – 7 August 2011) served as a British agent during the later part of World War II. She became a leading figure in the maquis groups of the French Resistance and was one of the Allies' most decorated servicewomen of the war. After the fall of France in 1940, she became a courier for the French Resistance and later joined the escape network of Captain Ian Garrow. By 1943, Wake was the Gestapo's most wanted person, with a 5 million-franc price on her head.

    After reaching Britain, Wake joined the Special Operations Executive. On the night of 29/30 April 1944, Wake was parachuted into the Auvergne, becoming a liaison between London and the local maquis group headed by Captain Henri Tardivat in the Forest of Tronçais. From April 1944 until the liberation of France, her 7,000+ maquisards fought 22,000 SS soldiers, causing 1,400 casualties, while suffering only 100 themselves.
