Here's one strong, gorgeous woman! My daughter, Front-Ranger, Jr.




I can see her mother in her.  :)

Thanks very much, Jeff! I'm looking forward to feeding you and the rest of my Brokie brood at the BBQ, and I hope you get to meet Jr. altho she will only be there Sunday and you'll be on your road trip!! I'll try to talk her into coming up earlier and staying longer.



Too much to do. . .I don't have time to get old!

Anke, here is a powerful woman who hailed from Erlangen, Bavaria, Germany.

Mathematical Genius,

Amalie Emmy Noether (1882 - 1935)





During the 1920s Noether did foundational work on abstract algebra, working in group theory, ring theory, group representations, and number theory. Her mathematics would be very useful for physicists and crystallographers, but it was controversial then. There was debate whether mathematics should be conceptual and abstract (intuitionist) or more physically based and applied (constructionist). Noether's conceptual approach to algebra led to a body of principles unifying algebra, geometry, linear algebra, topology, and logic.

Christiane Amanpour
(Chief international correspondent for CNN.)




Based out of CNN's London bureau, Amanpour is one of the most recognized international correspondents on American television. Her willingness to work in dangerous conflict zones has reportedly made her one of the more highly (if not the highest) paid field reporters in the world. She speaks English, Persian, and French fluently. Forbes magazine has named her one of the 100 Most Powerful Women.  (wikipedia)

Mary

Even most non religious people will agree that Mary was a strong and beautiful woman. And she gave birth to someone who would one day change the world with a new religion and new ideas.

(And, if it wasn't for her, we wouldn't have Christmas; my favorite holiday!)

This thread is a treasure  :D.

Thanks to all who contribute. I just wanted to add Jodie Foster but Marlen already did. I have a soft spot for her for a long, long time.

Melissa Etheridge

I've heard her music, but never seen her picture. OMG, how gorgeous.
