I'm looking for a list of real-life female role models. Who are some of your raddest baddest lady muses?

Times are tough, and I'm looking for icons to inspire me to buck up and carry on.
Last weekend, I was talking with two female friends of mine, and the conversation veered toward people whose lives and work we admire. Most we talked about were men, but it's not out of lack of inspiring women. Please share your role models with me. I'm in need of some.
They could be your style icons from forgotten eras, unheard-of intellectual superstars, CEOs and scientists I should know, artists or writers or anybody else whose power you invoke when you need a boost. I'm looking for as diverse and rich a roster as possible, so I'll hold off on naming names of my own for now.
Thanks in advance, looking forward to your responses.
