Mother Ann Lee (29 February 1736 – 8 September 1784) was the leader of the United Society of Believers in Christ’s Second Appearing, or Shakers. In 1774 she and a small group of her followers emigrated from England to New York. They worshiped by ecstatic dancing or "shaking", which dubbed them as the Shaking Quakers, or Shakers. Ann Lee preached to the public and led the Shaker church at a time when few women did either.

EMMA GOLDMAN Native Lithuanian Emma Goldman was born June 27, 1869. She immigrated to the U.S. in 1885, where she worked in clothing factories. It was in that setting that she came in contact with anarchist beliefs. A fiery speaker, she was jailed for inciting riots and advocating birth control. She was deported to the Soviet Union in 1919, spending the rest of her life traveling, speaking, and writing. http://www.biography.com/people/emma-goldman-9314556
Mother Teresa became known to the world for her selfless work with the "poorest of the poor" in Calcutta, India. She was born Agnes Bojaxhiu in Skopje, now the capital of Macedonia, in 1910, and began her novitiate in India in 1928. Since its inception in 1950, her order, the Missionaries of Charity, has opened more than five hundred centers around the world to help the dying and destitute. Mother Teresa is the recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize, amongst many other awards and honorary degrees for her charity work. She died in 1997. The Catholic Church is currently reviewing her cause for sainthood.
