   You're right, Mazier..the answer should be acknowledged one way or the other! Thanks!   

Now, let's see if you can guess who this famous poet is:



She’s a famous Canadian poet who writes in both French and English. She’s world-renowned and her work has been translated into Portuguese, Slovene, Spanish, Basque and Bulgarian.

Okay, this is an easy one!





Rumor has it that this woman was photographed more than Marilyn Monroe. She was a Mexican born painter who had polio as a child. Her father was a Hungarian-Jew born in Baden-Baden, Germany and her mother was a Spanish-Mexican Indigenous Native. Who is she?

   Maziar, I believe that is Helen Keller! If so, she was a fascinating woman...deaf and blind from childhood, she overcame all obstacles in her way and did not let her disabilities impede her intelligence and determination. She was a strong woman!

Here goes my 1000 post in AE and I'm dedicating it to one of the most influential modern women in the world today (she has been named as one of China's most influential women. Her blend of Chinese heritage and U.S. education and business experience has provided her with a unique skill - she negotiates with her local Chinese government and is just as comfortable negotiating with U.S. based companies. She is responsible for the music network growth in China and has done more than most to narrow the cultural divide between East and West. WHO IS SHE?

   OMG, Maziar, this is a no-brainer for me. One of my brothers is an avid foreign film watcher, and this actress is one of his all-time favorites. He raved about her in 8 Femmes. Her name is Danielle Darrieux and she was a hot commodity in her day! She did some American films too. She played the part of Olympias in "Alexander the Great" with Richard Burton and "The Rage of Paris" with Douglas Fairbanks Jr. She was also in the musical "Coco", where she replaced Katherine Hepburn, based on the life of Coco Chanel. She was also married to the famous playboy, Porfirio Rubirosa.

She was young, and pretty, and innocent. American soldiers broke into her home, murdered her father, her mother, and her 5 year old sister in cold blood. They then stripped her naked, raped her for hours, and then shot her in the head before burning her lower body-specifically her vaginal parts- so that no semen or fluids could be traced back to the perpetrators.
 
Who was she?
 
She was a child of Iraq.
 
She was a daughter of Iraq.
 
She was the honor of a Muslim Iraq. Her name was Abeer Qasim Hamza.
 
She was 15 and she was a martyr of Iraq.
