Harriet Ross Tubman, 1911. In my opinion one the most interesting women in the world, past or present. Its difficult to summarize her bio in 500 characters.

I chose this image because it fits her other name, "Moses". http://www.math.buffalo.edu/~sww/0history/hwny-tubman.html, http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/aia/part4/4p1535.html, http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/aia/part4/4p1535.html.

And look at her: as regal as any Queen who ever reigned.
