Woman's tongue is her sword, and she does not let it rust.
A woman hath nine lives like a cat.
A woman keeps secret only what she does not know.
We believe that a woman is great in all spheres: politics, science, art.
Today we are going to talk about prominent women. It is a very interesting and many-sided problem. Since time immemorial women have always played a great role in the development of human civilization and in the world history. History is not done by itself. People do it. History gives us many examples of a woman's influence on history and politics.
I’m sure all of you have read our wall newspapers and got a lot of information about the famous women of the past and present. Let’s have a short quiz and see how attentive you were while reading them:
T: Whose name means “the beautiful one has come”? (Queen Nefertiti, Egypt)
P1: Nefertiti, whose name means “ the beautiful one has come” , was more than just a beautiful face. Nefertiti was the daughter of Ay, a nobleman who was the brother of Queen Tiy. Nefertiti was also known by her people as “The ruler of the Nile”, “The daughter of Gods”, and “The empress of the Mediterranean”. The wife of Pharaoh Akhenaton, Queen Nefertiti wielded the major political and religious power of her day. Nefertiti was also influential in establishing one of the world’s first monotheistic religions, the worship of the sun-god Aton.
Nefertiti’s preeminence during her husband’s reign is evident in the temple carvings, which dominated those of Pharaoh Akhenaton. This gives a strong indication that Nefertiti matched her husband in religious status. Nefertiti was the only queen addressed in prayers and therefore was accorded divinity while her husband was still alive. Nefertiti was also the mother of six daughters. One of Nefertiti’s daughters, Ankhesenamon, was the wife of King Tutankhamon.
Nefertiti’s famous life-size bust depicts a beautiful woman and it precisely echoes her praise in an Egyptian hymn as “youthful forever and ever”. The bust eloquently speaks to her ageless beauty. It is one of the artistic masterpieces of all time.
T: Under whose 45 – year reign did England become a strong European power? (Queen Elizabeth l )
P2: Elizabeth was the only child of Henry Vlll and Ann Boleyn. With a childhood full of political intrigue, it was assumed that Elizabeth would never become queen. But she did, and as queen managed for Catholic population with acts of tolerance, to promote government reforms, to strengthen the currency, and to forward the growth of a capitalist economy. Highly educated , she also turned her court into a great centre of learning . Elizabeth's foreign relations were uneasy. Her greatest success was the defeat of the invading Spanish Armada in 1588. During Elizabeth's colourful 45-year reign, England became a strong European power, a vibrant commercial force, and a place of intellectual accomplishment. The country also grew to great maritime power. The “Elizabethan age” rightly was one of England's most fascinating eras.
T: Who became the Queen of Scotland when she was 6 days old? (Mary Stuart)
P3: Mary led an eventful and troubled life. She became Queen of Scotland when she was just six days old. At the age of five she was sent to France to be brought up in the French court, and eventually married King Francis ll, who died the next year. A widow, Mary returned to Scotland where a series of politically unwise love affairs and her continued adherence to Catholicism in a Protestant country led to trouble and a revolt against her. Forced to flee to England for refuge, she then faced the fears of Queen Elizabeth l who saw her as a rival to her throne. Elizabeth kept Mary under a form of imprisonment for the next 19 years. Watched closely, she was implicated in a series of conspiracies against Queen Elizabeth, and was executed.
T: What Russian Empress came from Germany?
(Catherine the Great)
P4: Ambitious and intelligent, Catherine arrived in Russia from Germany in 1744 to marry the 16-year-old Grand Duke Peter. His unpopularity allowed her to depose him, orchestrate his death, and proclaim herself the sole ruler of Russia. Considering herself a ruler in line with enlightenment ideas, she supported progressive ideas, such as reforms in low, education, and provincial and municipal administration. But she ruled as an autocrat and suppressed Polish nationalists, which led to Poland's partition, and took the Crimea and parts of the Black Sea coast from Turkey.
T: Whose reign was the longest in English history ? (Queen Victoria’s)
P5: Queen Victoria's reign was the longest in England history. Called the “Victorian age”, it was a time when Britain was at the height of its colonial power. Victoria became a symbol of British expansionist foreign policy. She insisted on taking an active part in the decisions of the government, and forcefully backed those ministers she liked. She herself was most proud of her role as a wife and mother – she had nine children. After the death of her beloved husband Prince Albert, she went into a period of deep depression, dropping out of public view for three years. Her popularity increased in her late years, particularly during the time of national celebrations, like the Jubilees of 1887 and 1897.
T: Who was the first and the only tsarina of Egypt ? (Cleopatra VII)
P6: Cleopatra is remembered as the beautiful and ruthless queen of Egypt who, by seducing both Julius Caesar and Mark Antony, nearly succeeded in her aim of ruling the ancient world.
She was born in Alexandria, and became the last of the Ptolemaic dynasty from Greece to rule Egypt. This dynasty from 323 B. C. until the Romans took over in 31 B. C. On the death of her father in 51 B. C. Cleopatra married, and shared the throne Egypt with her brother Ptolemy Xlll Philopater. However, she then engaged in a struggle with her brother for control of Egypt, which she only won after obtaining the support of Julius Caesar, who was in Egypt to settle the succession and secure Egypt's wealth for the Roman Empire. In 47 B.C. Cleopatra became the effective ruler of Egypt.
T: What is the real name of the Orlean virgin (Joan of Arc)
P7: Born into a peasant family, Joan of Arc became a French heroine by leading the army of Charles Vll against the English and raising their siege of Orleans. Captured by the Burgundians and ransomed by the English, she was put on trial on charges of witchcraft and fraud. She eventually was convicted only of wearing male clothes, an offence against the Church, and was burned at the stake. Her legend drew and she became canonized in 1920.
T: Who was the first woman in Kievan Rus who accepted Christianity?
P8: Olga, Saint, also called Helga, was a princess, the first recorded female ruler in Russia and the first member of the ruling family of Kiev to adopt Christianity. She was canonized as the first Russian saint of the Orthodox Church.
Olga was the widow of Igor l, prince of Kiev, who was assassinated by his subjects while attempting to extort excessive tribute. She became the first of the princely Kievans to adopt Orthodox Christianity. She was probably baptized, at Constantinople, then the most powerful patriarchate. Her efforts to bring Christianity to Russia were resisted by her son but continued by her grandson, the grand prince St. Vladimir.
