37 Inspiring Women Who Shaped Feminism

Celebrate these historic change-makers in honor of Women's History Month

In honor of Women’s History Month, we’re celebrating the women who’ve had huge impacts on the feminist movement. For all its misconceptions, feminism at its core is about fighting for women’s equality. And there are women who have been trailblazing the fight for decades now. From the brave Suffragettes who fought for women’s right to vote, to Tarana Burke launching the #MeToo movement, to Winona LaDuke leading the fight against climate change, these are the women of the 20th and 21st century who are paving the way for gender equality, the real definition of feminism.
