This is from the Indian Trust website:
 
"Ms. Cobell is a recipient of the 1997 "Genius Grant" from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation's Fellowship Program. In 2005 she received a "Cultural Freedom Fellowship" from the Lannan Foundation, an award that cited her persistence in bringing to light the government's "more than a century of government malfeasance and dishonesty" with the Indian Trust. In 2007 she was one of ten people given the AARP Impact Award (for making the world a better place) and in 2004 The National Center for American Indian Enterprise Development presented her with the Jay Silverheels Achievement Award."

She received her Honorary Doctorate from Montana State University (USA) and her professional background is in accounting and community development. She is the great granddaughter of one of the legendary Native American Indian leaders of the West. She is admired by many for her work on the project to reform the U.S. Government’s management of Indian trust assets and was one of the lead organizers of the first national bank located on an Indian reservation and owned by a Native American tribe. Who is she?

Well done, Cok Qec! Sorghaghtani Beki was a Kerait (a Turkic origin tribe). Her uncle was Ong Khan, ruler over the Keraits.   She was the daughter-in-law of Genghis Khan a/k/a Chinggis Khan (married to his youngest son Tolui). She was a Nestorian Christian, although she patronized Buddhism and Taoism to gain approval of her Chinese subjects. She had eleven children, four of whom went on to become Great Khans. She was very savvy and politically influential in setting in place the accession of the future rulers of the Mongolian Empire. She got the powerful nobles to side with her and against the regent, Khanum Oghul, by pointing out that future khans should be the direct descendants of Chingiss Khan, therefore, making her eldest son, Mongke, the victor.   

There is much unanimity among historians and observers of the 13th century that she was praised by many. A European missionary named John of Plan Caprini (on a visit to Mongolia) wrote that “this woman [Beki] was highly honored among the Tartars, the only exception was the emperor’s mother…”. She was praised by a Hebrew physician named Bar Hebraeus (of the Middle East) as “a queen who trained her sons so well that all princes were amazed by her administrative skills.”   Rashid al-Din (Persian historian) wrote that she was “extremely talented and able and that she was elevated over all other women in the world.”

Had it not been for the political involvement and manipulation achieved by this woman, descendents of Tolui might not have been able to replace Ogodei’s line as the main Mongolian royal line in East Asia.

She was born in Darmstadt, Hesse, Germany in 1872. She was known by some to be obstinate, cold and withdrawn, but also known by others to be loyal to her country and family. Her brother died of hemophilia and, three years later, her mother and sister died from diptheria. She became engaged in Coburg, Germany to a famous Russian, and married him for love, even though their families didn’t agree. They were married for 23 years and had five children. The empire rejoiced with a 301 cannon salute at the birth of the heir to the throne (the only son they had). She ruled with her famous Russian husband, but they were disliked by certain groups. Ultimately, thinking she was posing for a photograph, they were assassinated.

Who is she?

Well i am not sure, i remember my history class in school's time. We have learned something about slavery and imperialism in Africa. I took a look at my old school books and i found this woman:  Nzinga Mbande. The story was about a Dutch alliance and Nzinga Mbande against portogal.
Am i wrong ?

She was born in 1582, of Angoloan descent and was a member of Jagas (an ethnic militant group against Portuguese slave traders). She waged war, as a military leader, against European slave hunters. Totally devoted to the resistance movement, she formed alliances with other foreign powers to free Angola of European influence. Her struggle helped awaken others that followed her and forced them to mount offensives against invaders, including the mother of the great Zulu warrior Chaka; Madame Tinubu of Nigeria, Kaipkire of the Herero people of South West Africa, and the female army that followed the Dahomian King, Behanzin Bowelle.

Who was she?

Well, she is another women's rights activist from Afghanistan. The more I read about these strong women from Afghanistan, the more impressed I am with them. These are women that risk death for their cause, and yet they are willing to take that chance in order to keep the women's issue on the agenda. My hat goes off to them and I wish them much success!

Her name is MALALAI JOYA

Ahem, now that I have all of your attention:     

This is another brave and strong woman which I highly respect and support. At only 27 years of age, she is the feminist voice in her country and is considered to be the most famous woman of her country. She fears being assassinated, like all the other outspoken women before her, and she knows her mission can get her killed, to which she responds, “They will kill me but they will not kill my voice because it will be the voice of all women of [my country].” I admire her when she says, “ I am not better than any of the others, but I am young and energetic and the women of [my country] need me.”   Every country needs strong women like this one!

Who is she?

Mazier jaan,
 
The western parts of Pakistan, i.e. Baluchistan, the North West Frontier Province, and the Federally Administered Tribal Areas are all AFGHAN areas. 18.99% of Pakistan's population is of Iranic/Iranian descent and these are not refugees, their lands were given by the British when Pakistan was formed in 1947 and the Durand Line expired in 1993 and these areas of Pakistan were to go back to Afghanistan and Iran, respectively.
 
Afghans living in Afghanistan: 31.056 million
 
Afghans (largely Pashtun and Baloch) living in Pakistan: 31.50 million
 
Hence, the reason Hekmatyar enjoys so much support in Pakistan and not Iran (which is largley Shia).
