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

DISCLAIMER: We make no claim that all women featured here are saints. They did awesome stuff; the women themselves might not have been. Keep that in mind before sending angry notes.

Captured the city of Camulodunum and systematically demolished it, followed by Londinium and Verulamium, slaughtering 80,000 Romans along the way.  Though ultimately defeated, the rebellion led the Romans to take a much more conciliatory stance to the native Britons, and never fully conquered the island.  (Boudica)
