Women in Bosnia started tattooing their children with Christian symbols during the Ottoman invasion in order to prevent their forced conversion to Islam and to conserve their identity if dragged into slavery.

I think I might be a little in love with Mary Leakey.  To wit:

"[Her mother] placed Mary in a local Catholic convent to be educated, following the example of her own life. Later, Mary boasted of never passing an examination there.Mary could not even excel at French, although she spoke it fluently, because her teacher frowned upon her provincial accent. She was expelled for refusing to recite poetry, and then expelled from a second convent school for causing an explosion in a chemistry laboratory.” (wiki article)

Not to mention that she was a pretty badass paleoanthropologist in her own right.  She found the first Paranthropus boisei skull while out walking her dogs at ass o’clock, while Louis was sick/possibly sleeping off a hangover back at camp.
