@Elmud,
The wives of influencial men. And the men's mothers. But since I'm swedish I have to mention the author Astrid Lindgren. I'm sure that many strong women of today has been inspired by her Pippi Longstocking, and the rest of her stories has provided some comfort to children who really needs it and some laughs for generations of children, at least in Sweden. Just a shame that she never got the Nobel prize...

@Elmud,
If the definition of greatness includes brave, influential, and motivating, the following comes to my mind.
Mrs Kasturba Gandhi, wife of Mahatma Gandhi
Mother Theresa
Mrs Indira Gandhi, daughter of Jawaharlal Nehru,
Annie Besant
Hellen Keller
Ms Wangari Mathai
Razia Sultana
Rani Laxmibhai of Jhansi

What good did she do, or, well, she tried to be equal with Adam, but God kicked her out. So she's neither influencial nor well-known. But of course, she was the first feminist, can't argue with that.

As I interpet it, she only became a demon/witch after the expelling from Eden ...Iirc.

Imo quite unfair and unreasonable handling of the situation.
