Maggie Brown - Most people will remember her from the Titanic movie, but according to our tour guide, she was quite as abrasive as Kathy Bates portrayed her. And she wasn't some backwater ignorant redneck. At the time of the Titanic sinking she spoke 6 languages and acted as a translator and advocate for the immigrant widows who survived the wreck.

Margaret “Molly” Brown http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Margaret_Brown : philanthropist, women’s/human rights activist and survivor of the sinking of the RMS Titanic.    This badass had to be forced into a lifeboat by three men after she kept giving up her seat for others. Once in the lifeboat she reportedly picked up an oar and gave one of the surviving engineers her coat.
