Females of nature.
Mary Delany (1700-1788) created lifelike portraits of flowers using cut paper. Mind you she did this in her 70’s without current electrical benefits.

The Paper Garden, by Molly Peacock, tells her story.
Similarly, Maria Sibylla Merian (1647-1717) was a trailblazer in the fields of entomology and botany. She was the first person to travel transatlantically for scientific purposes.
Women leading the way.
Stella McCartney is a true inspiration. Not only does she design chic desirable clothing, she does so without harming animals. Her influence has ameliorated some of the repugnant habits of the fashion industry. Stella proves that clothes don’t require fur or leather to be beautiful.
Wear fur without wearing fur.
