These women never married and LOOK how they changed the world

Valentine's Day? Tut-tut. Who fancies hearts and roses when they're single? 

Not these leading ladies. While we're all for love and romance, Valentine's Day knows how to turn every genuine sentiment into a cliché which is why we've got major respect for these single ladies who've never let their bachelorette status get them down. 

Notable women throughout history have actually chosen to be unattached their entire lives and many of them have even helped shape the world as we know it.

So don’t spend V-Day weeping and self-loathing. Instead, think of how different the world would be without strong solo women like these.

For that extra boost of single girl confidence on the most romantic and couple-driven holiday of the year, have a look at how these 10 women influenced the world without ever relying on a man.
