The bold and the beautiful

Flip through the pages of history, and there's no shortage of iconic female characters who are both strong and inspirational. Cleopatra, Pocahontas, Marie Curie, Harriet Tubman, Amelia Earhart – the list could go on and on. Much has been written about each of them.

Which is why, instead of covering already-traveled ground, we went digging for a different angle. Meetings ensued. Discussions were had. What did we come up with? Female superheroes who inspire us, and have also appeared on magazine covers. Niche? Sure. Intriguing? You bet.
