"Lyudmila Pavlichenko, Soviet sniper during WWII. A student at the time, Pavlichenko was among the first to volunteer for the armed forced when the Soviet Union was invaded and declined the opportunity to serve as a nurse instead of a soldier so as to put her badass shooting talents to good use. She went on to record 309 kills, making her the most successful female sniper in history."
Christabel Pankhurst: 1880-1958; Christabel (daughter of Emmeline Pankhurst) advocated the use of militant tactics to win the vote for women in England. Pankhurst, with Annie Kenney, unfurled a banner reading "Votes for Women" at a Liberal Party meeting in 1905. Her action received world-wide attention after they were thrown out of the meeting. The two were arrested and sent to prison. Christabel then directed a campaign that included physical action, hunger strikes, and huge rallies.
