The first uppity woman to earn hero worship from me, at the age of 8.5 years, after seeing the film Anne of a Thousand Days.

Elizabeth I, Queen of England 1558-1603
Coronation, Age 25
Artist Unknown, National Portrait Gallery, London

Uppity quote selection:

If I were turned out of my realm in my petticoat, I would prosper anywhere in Christendom.
