Sharlot Hall, Arizona's territorial (and later state) historian. She roamed the unsettled parts of Arizona territory on her own, learning about native Americans and about the early pioneering settlers. She kept careful records, preserved artifacts that might have been lost and left a rich historical record.

Not a woman but a female dog hero. ☺

Honey was the 2006 Dog of the Year, an award she earned by saving her owner from a violent car accident. When she and Michael Bosch found their SUV rolled over and stuck upside down in a deep ravine, Bosch was trapped and knew that Honey was his only hope. With all his strength, he managed to release the dog and hope that she would somehow find help. Sure enough, the then 5 month old English Cocker Spaniel got the attention of a man about a half-mile away and brought him to the scene of the accident. Rescuers concluded that had it not been for this, Bosch would have died.

80 years ago women wore corsets and wouldn't think of being caught in pants.
"Chanel, who decided that women should enjoy the same freedoms as men, and that binding corsets and skirts were physically holding them back."

"I gave women a sense of freedom," she once said. "I gave them back their bodies: bodies that were drenched in sweat, due to fashion's finery, lace, corsets, underclothes, padding."

"Mildred Dresselhaus is often called the "queen of carbon science", and has been studying it in various forms for over 50 years. Graphene is now hailed as a wonder material, and using carbon in electronics is on the horizon. At 82, she's still a professor at MIT and recently won the $1 million Kavli prize in nanoscience."

While Mary Fields, often called "Stagecoach Mary," wasn't an outlaw, she was definitely way tougher than most of the women on this list. Fields was born into slavery around 1832, and after being emancipated at the age of 30, made her way west to Montana. Fields, who was very tall and extremely strong, worked as a general handyman and laborer at a school for Native American girls. She had a reputation for being strong, blunt, and more than willing to get in fights with people who annoyed her. At one point the local medical examiner claimed, she had "broken more noses than any other person in central Montana."

One popular story cites a time that Fields got stranded on a supply run and fought off wild wolves at gun point. Given her penchant for fighting and refusal to put up with (deleted word), Fields was fired from her position after having a shoot out behind the school (during which she literally shot her opponent in the "behind"). At age 60, Fields went on to work for the U.S. Postal Service, becoming the first black woman to work for the service. After 10 years of driving coaches and traveling hundreds of miles, Fields retired and started a cleaning service. But she didn't stop fighting.

Jane Goodall

Primatologist

Born 1934

Best known for her pioneering work with Tanzania's chimpanzees, which she started at the age of 20. This is the longest study of wild animals ever and it has revolutionised how we think about chimpanzees. Her Institute's work has expanded to other areas in Africa, focusing on education and sustainability.

Sister Antonia Brenner, who died last year at 86.

Married twice and divorced twice, she had seven children before she became a religious sister who literally lived with the residents of a notorious Tijuana prison.

"I'm effective in riots because I'm not afraid. I just pray and walk into it," she told The Associated Press in 2006. "A woman in a white veil walks in, someone they know loves them. So silence comes, explanation comes and arms go down."

She could easily have been a victim of the "two churches" mentality. For years after her divorce, she was unable to receive holy Communion. That didn't stop her from eventually founding a new order, following the spirituality of St. John Eudes, in service to the poor."

From an article by Tim Hoopes on Newsmax July 21, 2017
