About.com's Top 100 Women of History

http://womenshistory.about.com/od/lists/tp/top_100_women.htm

Glad to see my girl Pocahontas shows up there :) And Eleanor Roosevelt, a favorite of mine for how she helped the country while helping her husband.

I was hoping to see one of my favorite women in history - Hedy Lamarr on the list. She was not only a beautiful actress, but check this out, she goes ahead and helps develop Spread Spectrum Frequency-Jumping communications system that was used to conceal communications during WWI against the Nazis. It was later used on Naval ships to help them avoid torpedoes. It then helped lead the way for cellular communications. Damn girl!

"If you use your imagination, you can look at any actress and see her nude. I hope to make you use your imagination." - hedy Lamarr
