Women who really matter

Charmaine, at Reasoned Audacity was shocked that the show's creator, decrying the absence of "iconic" women, was able to name only Oprah as a potential iconic figure. (I'm always amazed that we still have the capacity to be shocked at the silliness radiating outwards from Hollywood.) She seeks contributions to a hall of fame she wants to prepare identifying maybe just a few more of those women who have helped shape the feminine side of America's identity. Click on over if you want to add to this list. The names I posted, after only a few minutes of thought, and despite being too old to have experienced a full multi-culti education, are Susan B. Anthony, Eleanor Roosevelt, Nellie Bly, Julia Ward Howe, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Rosa Parks, Abigail Adams, Dolly Madison, Sally Ride, and Golda Meir, Americans all. Hat tip: Suitable for Mixed Company
