5 Influential Women from History

by Hannah

A message from our founder: 

When I founded this brand, I envisioned creating a space where women could come together and indulge in the simple pleasures of life – the scent of a beautiful candle, the warmth of a cosy home, and the comfort of a pampering bath. I wanted to create a community where women could support and empower each other, a haven where we could all come to recharge and refuel.

So today, on International Women’s Day, I want to remind you all that you are valued, loved, and powerful. Keep shining your light and inspiring others, and never forget your incredible impact on the world.

Together, we can achieve anything. Happy International Woman’s Day!’ – Claudia, Founder


Discover 5 of the most influential women from history. 

We celebrate the women who have made their mark on history, and all of the inspiring, empowering women who continue to do so throughout all aspects of our lives. We believe that International Women’s Day is the perfect day to reflect on some of the most influential women whose impact will be felt for generations to come. 

 1. Coco Chanel (1883-1971)

“Don’t spend time beating on a wall, hoping to transform it into a door.” – Coco Chanel

Coco Chanel is considered to be one of the most influential fashion designers of all time. Challenging the traditions of a woman in her time, she worked to emancipate the stuffy, restricting feminine wardrobe, popularising wearing trousers in public and the infamous little black dress. 


2. Margaret Thatcher (1925-2013)

‘’If you want something said, ask a man; if you want something done, ask a woman.’’ – Margaret Thatcher

A revolutionary politician, Margaret Thatcher became the first female Prime Minister in 1979 during a very tumultuous time in British history. She paved the way for women in politics, and throughout her term as PM, proved to naysayers that she did indeed deserve the term ‘Iron Lady’ and that women belong in politics. 


3. Vivienne Westwood (1941-2022)

‘’The only possible effect one can have on the world is through unpopular ideas.’’ – Vivienne Westwood


Oftentimes, fashion is overlooked as being ‘’influential’’, however, Vivienne Westwood challenged this idea, using her designs and shows to make political statements. She is celebrated for her undying commitment to sustainability and activism, including her commitment to the environment and human rights. 


4. Zaha Hadid (1950 – 2016)

“You have to really believe not only in yourself; you have to believe that the world is actually worth your sacrifices.” – Zaha Hadid

From stunning architectural marvels to her continuous support of Arab women, and the rights of women in general, Zaha embodied the true meaning of tenacity throughout her life and career as an architect. Being an outspoken feminist, she consistently contradicted the norm of her field, speaking out against rampant sexism and staying true to her radically unique designs despite the critics. 


5. Maya Angelou (1928-2014)

“Hoping for the best, prepared for the worst, and unsurprised by anything in between.” — Maya Angelou

A renowned author and activist, Maya Angelou underwent severe sexual trauma and racism throughout her youth which led her to choose being mute for 6 years following the death of her attacker. Her book, ‘I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings’, which speaks out against abuse and racism has become a staple in classrooms around the world.
