Cleopatra is one the famous women who had not only conquered lands but also the hearts of great men like Julius Caesar, who was said to be one of the greatest Roman Emperor. Cleopatra was the last pharaoh of the Ancient Egypt, before it was fully conquered by the Romans under the ruling of Augustus, who is the legal heir of Caesar. She was not only known for her great beauty or for being a tempest but she was also known for her wit, charm and agreeable disposition. It was said that her beauty was just a face, but what attracted men to her was her soothing voice and the way she talks that gives delight to any man.
Another one of the famous women that made a difference in the world is Helen Keller. She is not only known for her writing skills but she is also known as the first blind/deaf person who had graduated from college. Being blinded, deafened and muted at the age of two, her illness did not hinder her to strive and be more than she can. Even with her illness, she has the motivation to succeed and be more than what is expected of her. Being a woman in her time (around 1900’s), it must have been difficult to finish college, but being robbed by the basic senses (sight, hearing and speaking), it may almost seem impossible. Yet, she was able to conquer all obstacles and empower herself to show people that anything is possible with hard work and perseverance.
In the modern times, Lady Gaga is one of the most famous women that had a great influence especially to teenagers and young adults. Her diverse and flamboyant style in music and clothing has made her popular and an inspiration for most people. Her most influential single is “Born this way” because it talks about being proud of yourself, no matter what you are or what you chose to be. She also owns a non-profit organization that has same name as her song, the Born This Way Foundation. It focuses on helping the youth to be empowered and inculcate anti-bullying behavior. The foundation also teaches self-confidence and career development for young people. She also has strong conviction about the rights of gays, lesbians and bisexuals. She says that she owes her success to the gays that had first fallen in love with her style and music.
