VISTA, Calif., March 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Of all the courageous, daring and strong women in history, who is most likely to win the Hunger Games? March is Women's History Month and Astroglide is on a mission to honor the world's bravest women—and answer the questions that no historian would dare ask. Today, Astroglide presents bold women, living and dead, who embody what it means to be a Fearless Female.
Most Likely to Have a Sex Life We're All Jealous of - Betty White
"I've enjoyed the opposite sex a lot. Always have. Always will."
If we believe the words coming from America's only active 92 year old sex icon (Mr. Hefner is 87), Betty White must have had a sex life we can only dream of; Robert Redford may be the only man on Betty's list without a checkmark—for now.
Most Likely to Win the Hunger Games – Joan of Arc
"I am not afraid... I was born to do this."
Frenchwoman Joan of Arc kicked the pulp out of the British until her capture in 1430. She was burned at the stake for heresy in 1431, partially for her decision to wear male military clothing. If this fearless female could shake off a blow to the head from a stone cannonball (while climbing a ladder no less!) we're pretty sure she'd OWN the Hunger Games.
Most Likely to Defeat IBM's Watson in Jeopardy – Judith Polgar
"When men lose against me, they always have a headache ... or things of that kind. I have never beaten a completely healthy man!"
If your first question is, "Who in the world is that?" clearly you have not been keeping up with the international chess circuit. In 1991, Judit Polgar became a grandmaster at 15 and she's currently the only woman ranked among the top 100 chess players in the world. Polgar and her two older sisters also broke the chauvinism of the Hungarian Chess Federation, which tried to stop them from playing chess against men. And by the way, Judit has an IQ of 170, which is higher than Albert Einstein's estimated 160.
Most Likely to "Go Commando" on a Daily Basis - Jane Goodall
Not only did Jane have the courage to study chimpanzees in the wild, but she became the lowest ranking member of a primate troop for 22 months. No human had ever pulled that off before. This is a woman who needs no barrier between herself and nature, and for that primal courage, we salute Jane!
Most Likely to Outlast Any Man…In a Debate – Wendy Davis
"Lawmakers, either get out of the vagina business or go to medical school."
Wendy Davis was the Texas Senator who held an 11-hour filibuster against a state bill that would ban abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy. Although the bill eventually passed, Wendy made an unforgettable stand for women's rights and left us with gem quotes like the one above.
Most Likely to Ruin an Episode of Extreme Makeover - Marilyn Monroe
"Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world."
A cultural icon and sex symbol long after her passing, Marilyn was her own woman from head-to-toe. This was a woman who ignored others' opinions and forced makeovers to define her own style—and we 'pity da fool' who dared try to change her.
From the bedroom to the chess table, from medieval France to the African wilderness, history's women show fearlessness in all forms. If we missed a Fearless Female who the world needs know about, honor her with your own superlative by Tweeting us at @Astroglide with hashtag #FearlessFemales.
