Marie-Laurence Jungfleisch

Marie-Laurence Jungfleisch, born on the 7th of October, 1990 in Paris, France is a German athlete whose sport is the high jump. She finished fourth at the 2017 World Championships and won the bronze medal at the 2018 European Championships.

Her father is from the French island of Martinique and her mother is a German. As a six-year-old, she moved with her family to Freiburg in Breisgau.

This tall beauty is 1.82 metres or 5 ft 11 1⁄2 inches tall and she has personal bests at 2.00 metres outdoors in 2016 and 1.97 metres indoors in 2014.

Jungfleisch won the first international medal last year with a bronze at the home European championship. She was also promising in Doha, but stopped and took time off with concerns of an achilles tendon injury three weeks before the World Cup.

She does not like to remember her school days in Freiburg. She says she had to fight hostility because of her skin color and therefore even changed schools.

"I have become more confident through sport," said the 28-year-old, who is committed to an initiative against right-wing extremism.

Georgina Monti

Georgina Monti, born on February, 13th 1995 in Southend On Sea, Essex, Great Britain is a Kiteboarder whom is sponsored by Agent Eight, Richys Kitesurf School and Kitepix.

For as long as Georgina can remember she's loved being in the water. From a young age, her parents would take her brother and her barefooting, waterskiing and to the coast to boogie board and surf - they just couldn’t get enough.

Throughout school, she loved to swim and would compete in interschool events too. Like most little girls, she loved horses and got her first horse when she was only seven - which forced the watersports into the backseat for a while.

In the meantime, Georgina competed nationally with her rescue horse Rodney, who she trained to become a Grade C affiliated showjumper and they won many competitions together.

It wasn’t until she was 16 years old that she took up wakeboarding at a new local wake park, which reignited her love for watersports.

Emma Timmis

British adventurer Emma Timmis, born on the 19th of February, 1980 considers herself a normal person even though she has run across Africa, almost twice.

When some people want a fitness challenge, they set themselves a small, achievable goal - such as running a 10-kilometer race or working out three times a week. Then there are others who fancy pushing themselves and they go to extreme lengths.

From cycling to hiking, climbing to skating, running, jumping, dancing and prancing. Emma has a passion for travel and tries to make her journeys as active as possible. "I have a desire to see the world but don't want to view it through a car window flying past at 60mph..."

At the age of 27 she became the first female to run the Freedom Trail, a 2,400 kilometer through track from Durban to Cape Town in South Africa. This later led to running West to East across the continent of Africa, from Namibia to Mozambique.

This mammoth run took Emma 89 days, covering the distance equal to 94 marathons, or almost 4,000 kilometers.

Over the last three years Emma has not been able to continue with any physical endeavours as she has struggled with an undiagnosed leg condition. But she decided to turn adversity into opportunity and recreate her life. Visit her profile at the link below and see how you can encourage her in her efforts.

Troublesome Patriarchal Dominance - Time For More Women in Positions of Power

unique women of the world

Women from around the world that are living on the edge, doing something special, making a difference or generally in possession of a unique nature. In my book these women should be put in positions of power and allowed a chance to see what they would add to our world, instead of the men that promise blah-blah-blah and then fill their own pockets as well as the pockets of their buddies. The way I see it, any of this diverse group of women would be an improvement...

These are the kind of women that should be put in positions of power. They would make positive contributions with their time and resources and leave the world better for having been here. And not to mention the fact that they all certainly look far more appealing...

From century to century throughout history the men have ruled the roost in politics and business and relegated the home as the place where the women were to direct their attention and efforts. The women have done their job admirably, but the men have failed miserably in most cases. Their politics are corrupt and their businesses have turned into large greedy corporations. The patriarchal model is evidently not working so well - so maybe it's time to hand the reins over to the women. The wars and conflicts around the world are the result of male dominance in politics, and more often than not, are set in motion to benefit male controlled corporate interests. Turn on the evening news anywhere in the world and you'll see images of angry men in conflict and women and children in flight. It is time for change...

Women Of Substance - Interesting and Unique Women

unique women of the world

Worldwide women are asserting themselves and taking charge of everything from the corporate boardroom to more artistic and unique positions in the world of art, design, cuisine and adventure travel. On the African continent women are raising themselves into postions of power in politics, the arts and business. Women are no longer to be kept within stereotypical confines and are no longer asking for empowerment, but are simply taking charge over their lives and the situations and events that affect them. Above are just three of these self empowered females.

When it comes to being on the front lines amidst the unrest that has been reshaping countries around the world, it is now women who are placing themselves at risk to bring news to the rest of us about not only the conflicts that mainstream media reports, but often to expose corruption and abuses that might well never surface if it wasn't for these women on the ground in these locations bringing these misdeeds to the attention of a worldwide audience. The women above are three - one from Tunis, one from London, and one from Cairo that played integral roles in bringing the world's attention to injustice.

unique women of the world

The patriarchal cultures around the world have dominated for thousands of years and more often than not have brought conflict and mayhem. The women of today are not the incompetent and helpless creatures that, in times past were portrayed as inferior to me and therefore needed to remain on the sidelines to let the dominant males run everything. Todays women are physically strong, mentally tough and talented at whatever they put their minds to. So, it is bloody well time that the men stepped to one side and ceased to deny these remarkable women like the ones above their due.
