Sachs Nelly 10.12.1891 - 12.5.1970
(pravo ime Leone Sachs)  je pred nacisti 1940 zbežala na Švedsko, kjer je živela in delal do svoje smrti. Bila je usodno čustveno prizadeta zaradi nacističnega preganjanja Judov in vsa njena poezija je s tem povezana. Pomembnejša dela: pesniške zbirke: V bivališčih smrti (1947), In nihče ne ve naprej (1957), Beg in preobrazba (1959), Razdeli se, noč (1971), zbirka povesti Legende in pripovedke (1929), ter drama Eli: Misterij o Izraelovem trpljenju (1951). Leta 1966 je skupaj z J. Agnonom prejela Nobelovo nagrado.

The poetic voice of Leonie Nelly Sachs,  developed when the rise of Nazism and the Holocaust forced her to find a means of expression that would "make the unspeakable bearable." In 1940 she escaped to Sweden from her native Germany with the help of the writer Selma Lagerlof. Awarded the Peace Prize of German Publishers in 1965, she accepted it in the spirit of loving forgiveness that underlies her poetry. In 1966 she shared the Nobel Prize for literature with S. Y. Agnon. The basic theme of her unrhymed poetry is the annihilation of European Jewry during World War II. Her often quoted poem, O the Chimneys, in which the smoke from the chimneys of Nazi extermination camps symbolizes Israel's body, provided the title for the first selection of her poems in English (1967). A second volume, A Seeker and Other Poems, was published in 1970.

Sand George 1.7.1804 - 8.7.1876
(pravo ime Amandine-Lucie-Aurore Dupin). Imela je več razmerij: s pisateljem J. Sandeaujem, A. de Mussetom, od 1838-46 pa z F. Chopinom.
George Sand, pseudonym of Aurore Dudevant, was the most famous woman writer in 19th-century France. A prolific writer of novels, stories, plays, essays, and memoirs, she represented the epitome of French romantic idealism and unconventional iconoclasm to the whole of Europe, including Russia. She was married at 18 to Baron Casimir Dudevant and had two children. Profoundly unhappy in the marriage, she left her husband, established herself in Paris with another man in 1831, and out of financial necessity began writing. Her first independent novel, Indiana (1832), the story of an unhappy wife who struggles to free herself from the imprisonment of marriage, explicitly called a form of slavery, made her an overnight celebrity. Subsequent novels, such as Valentine (1832) and, most notably, Lelia (1833), astounded her readers with their frank exploration of women's sexual feelings and their passionate call for women's freedom to find emotional satisfaction. Sand never advocated "free love" but remained an idealist, exalting the idea of marriage between equals and condemning the social system of male dominance that made such marriages impossible. Legally separated from her husband in 1836, she kept up a furious pace of literary composition throughout her life to support herself and her children. Her reputation for iconoclasm grew not only from the themes of her novels but from exaggerated reports of her unconventional behavior: her occasionally masculine clothing, her habitual smoking, and her series of love affairs with such well-known artists as Alfred de Musset and Frederic Chopin.

Sapho 630 pr.n.št(BC) - 

The most famous woman poet of all time, known for her lyrics, Sappho was born at Eressos on the Greek island of Lesbos. About her life there is much anecdote, little fact. She was married and had a daughter and sometime between 604 and 595 suffered exile in Sicily. Of her nine books of poems only fragments remain, some recently discovered on Egyptian papyri. Celebrated for her marriage songs (epithalamia), she also wrote hymns, mythological poems, and personal poems of love. Of the last, most are addressed to women, possibly members of a literary circle with strong emotional attachments. Several poems invoking Aphrodite suggest that they may have shared some cult or ceremonial practices. Famous in ancient times for her depiction of passion, Sappho delights in sensuous images of flowers, the moon, the sea, and the night. Her style is straightforward, delicate, melodious, graceful, and witty. The Roman poet Catullus imitated her, and Ovid depicted her legendary love for Phaon in his Heroides.

Schleimer-Kill Catherine 1884 - 1973
borka za ženske pravice

Catherine Schleimer-Kill was one of the first Luxembourg women to be bold enough to enter the political arena. The right to vote, secured in 1919, was, for her, only the first step towards a co-administration of women. Starting with the first general elections in 1919, she participated in several district and national elections and even introduced in 1928 her own purely feminine party, Action féminine . Thanks to this association that she had created, she undertook for almost 15 years important activities to raise awareness of women’s and social issues. On the long path women have followed until today in their struggle for equal rights, her struggle for emancipation was a decisive first step : « It is the route within their own power, the path towards independence. United in their solidarity, women must carry out the work of women. »

Rodila se je kot Clara Josephine Wieck in se od petega leta učila igrati na klavir, do 1835 pa so jo že v vsej Evropi poznali kot čudežnega otroka. Leta 1838 je dobila odlikovanje avstrijskega dvora, izvolili pa so jo tudi v članstvo prestižnega dunajskega Društva prijateljev glasbe (Gesellschaft der Musikfreunde). Kljub očetovem nasprotovanju se je leta 1840 poročila z Robertom Schumannom in rodila osem otrok. Čeprav so družinske obveznosti precej ovirale njeno kariero, je še naprej poučevala na konservatoriju v Leipzigu, koncertirala in skladala. Pisala je dela za orkester, med drugim koncerte za klavir, komorno glasbo, samospeve in solistične klavirske skladbe. Leta 1853 sta se Schumannova profesionalno in osebno spoprijateljila s skladateljem Johannesom Brahmsom. Clara je nadaljevala to prijateljstvo tudi po moževi smrti 1856.

Trained by her father, Friedrich Wieck, who also taught Schumann, she made her debut in 1828 and undertook several tours in the following years.

She was an inveterate traveller, visited other parts of the Caribbean, including Cuba, Haiti and the Bahamas, as well as Central America and Britain. On these trips she complemented her knowledge of traditional medicine with European medical ideas. In 1854 Seacole travelled to England again, and approached the War Office, asking to be sent as an army nurse to the Crimea where there was known to be poor medical facilities for wounded soldiers. She was refused. But she funded her own trip to the Crimea where she established the British Hotel near Balaclava to provide 'a mess-table and comfortable quarters for sick and convalescent officers'. She also visited the battlefield, sometimes under fire, to nurse the wounded, and became known as 'Mother Seacole'. Her reputation rivalled that of Florence Nightingale. After the war she returned to England destitute and in ill health. The press highlighted her plight and in July 1857 a benefit festival was organised to raise money for her, attracting thousands of people. Later that year, Seacole published her memoirs, The Wonderful Adventures of Mrs Seacole in Many Lands.

Leta 1644 se je poročila s pripadnikom bretonske plemiške družine Henrijem de Sevignejem in ta jo je uvedel na francoski dvor. Leta 1651 je bil ubit v dvoboju in jo zapustil z dvema otrokoma, še prej pa zapravil ves njen denar. Kljub temu se je markiza de Sevigne še naprej gibala v visoki pariški družbi in se veliko ukvarjala s svojima otrokoma. Leta 1669 se je njena hči Francoise Marguerite poročila in se odselila v Provanso. Gospa de Sevigne jo je močno pogrešala, zato ji je pogosto pisala. Ta pisma so njen največji literarni dosežek. Nastalo jih je kar 1700, večinoma v prvih sedmih letih po hčerinem odhodu. V njih markiza sporoča novice iz mondene družbe. opisuje pomembne osebnosti in ljudi, ki so jo obiskovali, komentira tekoče zadeve in piše o podrobnostih iz vsakdanjega življenja. Razpravljala je tudi o svojem literarnem okusu. V pismih so sicer podatki, ki jih je mogoče najti še drugje, vendar je njen način pripovedovanja nepozaben. Domišljija, ki se je prebudila po naključju, je v njej predramila čutnost in moč literarne umetnice in se sprostila v duhovitih in očarljivih pripovedih. 

Marie de Rabutin Chantal, marquise de Sevigne became immortalized when her correspondence of more than 1,500 letters was published posthumously in 1725-26. Born into a distinguished family, she was orphaned early but given an excellent classical education by two uncles. She was married to Henri de Sevigne in 1644 and widowed in 1651. She had two children, one of whom was Francoise Marguerite. This daughter's marriage (1669) to the comte de Grignan separated her from her passionately devoted mother, and she became the recipient of most of her mother's correspondence. Delightfully anecdotal, sometimes containing serious reflection, the letters include portraits of Corneille, La Rochefoucauld, Racine, and Turenne, and they also afford an insight into Madame de Sevigne's own nature.

Shelley Mary  30.8.1797 - 1.2.1851
Mary Shelley je bila angleška romanopiska. Med popotovanjem po Evropi je ob Ženevskem jezeru napisala svojega znamenitega  Frankensteina (1818). Do smrti svojega moža je živela v Italiji. Nato se je vrnila v Anglijo, kjer je nadaljevala s pisanjem romanov. Med drugim je napisala Valperga (1823), The Last Man (1826), Falkner (1837).

Daughter of political philosopher William Godwin and women's rights advocate Mary Wollstonecraft and second wife of the poet Percy Bysshe Shelley, Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley is famous as the author of Frankenstein (1818), a novel whose popularity as a horror tale has eclipsed its philosophical content. Having eloped (1814) with Shelley to Europe, she married him after the suicide (1816) of his first wife and bore him four children, of whom only one survived. The marriage brought Mary Shelley into contact with outstanding writers of the period, including Byron; during their conversation one evening, she conceived the idea that later developed into Frankenstein. Upon the death (1822) of her husband, Mary Shelley devoted herself to her child and to literary work. Returning (1823) to England, she edited Shelley's works and her own Journals and letters, which, with Shelley-related material in her other works, are an important source for later commentators. Often using views and characters derived from Shelley and his friends but uneven in quality, her works include History of a Six Weeks Tour (1817), The Last Man (1826), and the auto-biographical Lodore (1835).

Other activities were devoted to the relief of unemployment and to visits to hospitals and homes. In the 1840s she created temporary homes offering accommodation for a nominal rent or rent free. Her untiring practical commitment enhanced her reputation as a pioneer, whose fight for the greater involvement of women in social welfare work.

Sigmundsdottir Sesselja 5.6.1902 - 1974

Sesselja Hreindis Sigmundsdottir was a pioneer in matters concerning the mentally handicapped in Iceland, and established the first foster home for the mentally handicapped at Solheimar in Grimsnes. She studied padagogy and care of children and the handicapped in Denmark, Switzerland and Germany. She emphasized mixing the handicapped and non-handicapped long before these methods gained popularity abroad. Sesselja was ahead of her contemporaries and the first her views were met with suspicion and incomprehension by the authorities and the general public. Public authorities opposed allowing handicapped and non-handicapped children to live together at Solheimar "because the healthy children may suffer mental and physical damage from consorting with the handicapped ones". Sesselja was also a major proponent of organic farming and is often called the first Icelandic environmentalist.

STEIL  Marie-Henriette 1898 - 1930
luksemburška pisateljica

Born in Luxembourg, Marie-Henriette Steil was one of the few Luxembourg women of her times to make a name for herself as a writer. Even though she has been virtually forgotten today, this remarkable and engaging young woman deserves an important place in the pantheon of great national authors. Although Marie-Henriette Steil wrote serials for newspapers, it was above all with her work Tier und Mensch, harmlose Geschichten von Marie-Henriette Steil illustrated by Auguste Trémont that made her famous. Well constructed, her stories, sometimes ironic, sometimes full of humour as Das Lachen des Herzen, were always inspired by reality and were characterised by real compassion for the most disadvantaged as in Der Schandfleck. Unfortunately, she died at the young age of 32 years, before knowing the blossoming of her art and writing career.
