A change-maker is someone who takes action when they see something needs to be done in their society and the world. Women excel as leaders who are change-makers as they are relentless in pursuing their goal. “The hand that rocks the cradle, the procreator, the mother of tomorrow, a woman shapes the destiny of civilization.” Such women challenge the status quo and use a deep-rooted sense of empathy for others, identify a specific problem or opportunity to tackle and do something about it, turning the society into a place of equal opportunity. They are women of dreams and passions who persevere with purpose and determination, and they dazzle by taking the road less traversed, fighting against every atrocity with zero tolerances towards violence, harassment, and oppression. From science to war to religion, they brought revolution and created history. They are Marie Curie, Jhansi Rani Lakshmi Bai, Mother Teresa, Ida Scudder, Williamine Fleming, Rosalind Franklin and so on.
