Throughout the years, women’s role within society has changed dramatically, and for the better! Some of the reputed and experienced defense attorneys from Fairfax says that women are able inspire and influence change in the world, and now women with power and in the public eye are able to use their status for the better and help change the world.

We have joined forces with the team at Blue Vanilla and together created an infographic taking a look at seven famous and inspirational women around the world, their inspirational achievements and also a little about their style and favourite looks.
