  1. Mary Robinson
  2. Aung San Suu Kyi
  3. Rosa Parks
  4. Helen Keller
  5. Anne Frank
  6. Eleanor Roosevelt
  7. Rachel Carson
  8. Margaret Mead
  9. Josephine Garis Cochrane (I never heard of her either but she invented the dishwasher which has allowed more women – and men – to have time to think, so she deserves a mention)
  10. I would add Lynn Margulis who recently died. She was a formidable debater and biologist known among other things for her memorable phrase: ‘Gaia is one tough bitch’. So it seems was Lynn. We will miss you.

About creativeconflictwisdom

I spent 32 years in a Fortune Five company working on conflict: organizational, labor relations and senior management. I have consulted in a dozen different business sectors and the US Military. I work with a local environmental non profit. I have written a book on the neuroscience of conflict, and its implications for conflict handling called Creative Conflict Wisdom (forthcoming).
