When the Germans dismantled the clandestine postal network she had set up, she served two years in prison.

She worked for universal female suffrage through her engagement in the liberal party between the wars . Marthe Boël chaired Belgium’s National Women’s Council (NVB / CNF) from 1934 to 1952, in which capacity she recruited talented young women. Her presidency of the International Council of Women (1936-1947) was dominated by the Second World War. In addition to these commitments Boël was the driving force behind the Belgian branch of the YWCA (Young Women’s Christian Association) and the Girl Guides.

Between 1988 and 1994 she was its chair, striving to improve the Council’s professionalism and dynamism.

Bora Katharina von 29.1.1499 - 20.12.1552
Rodila se je blizu Leipziga. Ko je bila stara 5 let, ji je umrla mati. Zanjo so najprej skrbeli v avguštinskem samostanu v Brehna, kasneje pa je živela v samostanu Nimbschen. Skupaj s petimi nunami je pobegnila v Wittenberg, središče reformacije. Zavetje je našla pri slikarju Lucasu Cranachu. Za begunko se je zavzel Martin Luther in se brez obotavljanja poročil z njo. Nemški volilni knez je Lutru dodelil avguštinski samostan, ki je postal prijeten dom mladih. Katharina pa ga je z vso zavzetostjo kmalu spremenila v zbirališče študentov, prijateljev, gostov, sosedov in vseh v stiski. Tu se je Katharina seznanjala z idejami reformacije, sodelovala v diskusijah in s tem dajala velik prispevek k propagandi reformacije. Svojega moža je preživela za skoraj 7 let. 

She was born in a place south of Leipzig. At the age of five, after the early death of her mother, she was taken care of first by the nuns of the Augustinian monastery in Brehna and later on lived at the monastery in Nimbschen near Grimma. Together with eight nuns she escaped from the monastery and arrived in Wittenberg, the centre of the Reformation. She found shelter in the home of the painter and mayor Lucas Cranach. Martin Luther took care of the escapee, and in 1525 decided without hesitation to marry Katharina von Bora. On that occasion, the prince elector gave Luther the Augustinian monastery in Wittenberg, which Katharina turned not only into a pleasant home but soon - thanks to her commitment and openmindedness - into a meeting place for students, guests, friends, relatives and persons in need as well. This open house made it possible to see, hear and discuss with the Reformer personally. Thus, Katharina von Bora made no minor contribution to the propagation of the Reformation. She outlived her husband by nearly seven years.

Žofia Bosniaková was born in Šurany. She was the third of the seven children of Tomáš Bosniak and Mária Kenderessyová. At the time of her birth, her father was a captain at the Castle of Šurany. With his family, he later moved to Fiľakovo to become a captain of the Fiľakovo fortress. At the age of seventeen, Žofia married Baron Michal Serényi and left for Světlov Castle in Bojkovice, Moravia. Because of her husband’s death in the spring of 1626 following a sudden illness, however, their marriage was short. Žofia returned home and entered into her second marriage with František Wesselényi. Thus her new home became Teplička nad Váhom, where she gave birth to her two sons, Adam (1630) and Ladislav (1633). She was a modest, deeply religious and kind-hearted woman, always eager to help. Her deep sympathy for the poor and suffering led her to found and sustain a poorhouse. She died at Strečno Castle, where she and her family were then staying due to riots related to the uprising of Juraj Rákoczi. She was buried at Strečno under the castle chapel. In 1729, her body was found intact and deposited in a glass-lidded coffin in the church in Teplička, the Loretan Chapel of Virgin Mary, built for that purpose by Count Löwenburg. Her great popularity, which went beyond the area of Teplička, is one factor in her potential beatification. Remains of Žofia Bosniaková were burned by mentally unstable man on April 1st 2009.

Burgund Maria von 1457 - 1482
Po smrti svojega očeta je leta 1477 postala Luxemburška vojvodinja. Še istega leta se je poročila z nadvojvodom Mksimiljanom avstrijskim. S tem je preprečila priključitev Luxemburga Franciji, ki je zahtevala lastnišvo na vojvodstvo od leta 1437, ko je izumrla moška linija v Luxemburgu.

She was the daughter of Charles the Bold, Duke of Burgundy (and of Luxembourg); she became Duchess of Luxembourg upon her father's death in Nancy on January 5, 1477. Later in 1477, she married archduke Maximilian of Austria (the Holy Roman Emperor from 1493-1519), an act which effectively prevented Luxembourg from being annexed by French kings who had claimed ownership of the Duchy since the extinction in 1437 of the male line of the imperial branch of the House of Luxembourg. As Duchess of Luxembourg, Marie of Burgundy strengthened considerably the fortress of Luxembourg and equipped the ramparts with cannons. This was sufficient to withstand the assault in 1479 of the Duke of Amboise, the head of a French army. After this failure, serious opposition to the Burgundian rule of Luxembourg ceased. Marie's benevolent acts were instrumental in securing the loyalty of Luxembourg to Burgundy. She restored the granted privileges of many towns, monasteries, and corporations; restored the confiscated seal; and restored the city hall of Luxembourg City.
