#1. If it weren’t for her savage brilliance, you wouldn’t be reading this right now.
But it wasn’t all in vain, because Hedy Lamarr’s invention grew into a massive viral whirpool that allows me to remind you (and millions of others) that you wouldn’t be talking to Siri, streaming music on your portable speaker, or using Waze to navigate through traffic without her brilliant, persistent, beautiful mind.
#2. She was so fierce, even China gave up trying to fight her.
#3. 19th-century trolls were running amok, but this glorious goddess took it straight to the bank.
#4. Not at all lacking in bravery, this impassioned woman slayed the entire state of Massachusetts to claim her freedom.
#5. This queen refused her widespread rejection with one little hashtag…
#6. I doubt she thought it was funny, but she definitely got the last laugh.
#7. Mini-Queen Milla wanted to do more than prove them wrong, so she led by example.
#8. When a heroine spreads her wings, everyone begins to fly.
#9. She wasn’t satisfied living only half her dream, so she followed both her callings to become an expert on the Virgin Motherboard. (sorry.)
Nun of you should be surprised. (again, so sorry)
#10. She was more than just an children’s author, but no one was interested in her scientific works…
…until now. Because look at that fierceness!

#12. Perhaps they were inspired by this lady, who was so ferociously smart that NASA called upon her to double check all their computer calculations.
