Because women have done more in the past 10,000 years than just pop out babies and make sandwiches.

Helped establish the Tang Dynasty, after raising an army of 70,000 warriors and peasant rebels and earned the loyalty of the rural provinces (by not allowing her men to rape and pillage, and distributing food and drink).  Crushed the army of the emperor, while also recruiting its skilled officers, before joining up with her father’s army to descend on the Imperial Palace.  When she died two years later, was given a funeral worthy of a general. (Li Zhao, Princess Pingyang)
