There is no such thing as an ordinary woman, but not all of them can change the world. You are one of the few who are both smart enough and strong enough not only to make a difference for themselves but for others as well. You are young, beautiful, kind, empathetic, and you make the world a better place for your members. You inspire them, as well as the people around you, and you are the living proof that a woman doesn't need a man to take care of her. You started early, you've reached the top, and the merits are entirely yours.
You know who else did it? Nina Markova, Forugh Farrokhzad, Alva Smith, and Lorena Hickok, to name only a few. If you don't know who they are, you don't have to feel ashamed, you will find out soon. They are some of the strongest women in history, but they have another thing in common: they are the main characters in some of the best selling books of recent years. In the following, we will present only a few of them, and you will choose which to "devour" first and who do you resemble the most. Enjoy your reading!
