5: Margaret Brent
6: Margaret Brent 1600 to 1671. Margaret Brent is best known for he speech about how America should be the first country to allow women to own land, settle land disputes, and raise armed volunteer groups. After being turned down for her plea to own land she moved to Virginia and lived for the rest of her life until she died at the age of 1671 at the age of 71.
7: All these women together contributed in many ways for what they thought was right. Many of them just wanted everyone to be treated equally man or woman. In my opinion all these women helped make America what it is today.
