The woman who breaks the corset is unstoppable

The female corset is now a thing of the past: it is a garment that cinges the body from under the chest to the hips. The word comes from the French corset, derived from corps (body). Today the corset is relegated to orthopedic use and also to fetishism.

But the meaning that interests me here is that of "breaking the corset" understood as "liberation" of women, bypassing the old conservative rules (that still persist in many countries and political formations). 

I have compiled the best articles published on the blog Soymimarca, by several authors, and the category "women with brand", which started in August 2011 from Teresa of Calcutta to Hedy Lamarr. Here I make a small preview of his achievements, but at the end of the post you can download the ebook for free.

If you have a minute, I explain it to you in this video: 

The Woman Who Breaks

Throughout the most recent history, much of the progress has come thanks to a woman who breaks her corset and decides not to stay in a second position. I want to thank my friends and colleagues Jordi Collell, Alexia Herms, Elena Tecchiati, Olga Villacampa, Javier Santamarta, Carme Gibert, Celestino Martinez, Maria A. Sánchez, Oianko Choperena and Raquel Gómez their portraits that have contributed to create a compilation ebook that values that inner strength of so many women who have made the world a better place today.

My favorite (and soon yours): Hedy Lamarr

My good friend, the historian, political scientist and writer Javier Santamarta del Pozo, made a magnificent portrait of Hedwig Eva Maria Kiesle, a gifted Viennese who to her 16 years entered the engineering university with a future for science.

However, and under the name Hedy Lamarr, made a career as a film actress, where its impossible beauty would lead it to be image even the face of the popular CorelDraw software for years.

Well, without Hedy Lamarr today we would not enjoy advances like the WIFI, The Bluetooth and the GPS. And as Javier says, The 9 November, day of his birth, "Inventor's Day" is celebrated in his honor.

My muse: Audrey Hepburn

Audrey wasn't just a great actress. As the brand specialist tells in her portrait Alexia Herms, Audrey was and still is a symbol of beauty and a fashion icon for eternity...

Delicate and modern, innocent and sophisticated, with a vision of romantic reality and a sensitivity to the skin.

Yours is this phrase, which has been replicated thousands of times: 

A woman's beauty should be seen inside her eyes, because that's the door to the heart., the place where love dwells. A woman's beauty is not on her face, but true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul.

Diana Spencer, queen of hearts

"In this marriage we were three, too many people." was the phrase that occupied all the covers when the most media-savvy real separation in history occurred.

And the funny thing is that what makes Diana an eternal brand is what happened after that.: the former Princess of Wales dedicated herself to helping the underprivileged, leaving in the background the activity of the British royal house.

Nothing makes me happier than trying to help the weakest and most vulnerable in society.

Diana sided with Nelson Mandela, of the Dalai Lama and Mother Teresa of Calcutta. She never considered myself to be the queen of her country.. But she managed to be the queen in the heart of the people, the queen of hearts. A sail in the wind

Indira Gandhi, swimming against the current

An excellent portrait of the Professor Jordi Collell, where he shows us the real meaning of resilience through which he was Prime Minister of India, Indira Gandhi (By the way, not related to "Gandhi"). 

Daughter of Nerhu, was persecuted by the British Empire. During his school years he surprised his own and strangers by his ability to oratory.

He succeeded in turning India into a nuclear power, launch the first Hindu satellite, supported the sport and India was world champion in field hockey, managed to stem the unstoppable pace of poverty and famine and India was a world-renowned and respected country. Unfortunately, was killed by her bodyguards. I'll take this sentence.:

The world demands results, don't tell others about your labor pains, show them to the child

Thatcher, the iron lady

From humble family, broke a giant corset: in a male-dominated world, she succeeded in winning as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom for the Conservative Party.

She earned her nickname "Iron Lady" after her stubbornness in conserving an archipelago near Argentina, the Falkland Islands (Falklands). His collection of reflections is worthy.

His collection of reflections is lossless, but I'm left with a: 

As soon as women are granted equality with men, becomes superior to it

Frida Kahlo, when pain becomes art

Polio survivor, a los 18 years she was run over by a tram, and those wounds marked his life... and his work.

I tried to drown my pains, but they learned to swim

The phrase sums up well the passage through the life of one of the greatest artists and pop icon of Mexican culture. Suffered more than 30 operations throughout his life and during his convalescence he began to paint.

To the 22 Years, married the Mexican muralist of 42 Diego Rivera years, a stormy and passionate relationship full of infidelities.

From his pictorial work, most of them were self-portraits. When asked why, Answered: "Because I'm alone so often, because I'm the person I know best.".

Marie Curie, Nobel Prize in Physics and Nobel Prize in Chemistry

Maria Salomea Skłodowska-Curie's is an extraordinary case of capabilities. It was the best in everything and the first in everything.

It was a pioneer in the field of radioactivity and health. During World War I Marie Curie proposed the use of mobile radiography for the treatment of wounded soldiers, a car known as the Petit Curie was used.

She was the first woman to win a Nobel Prize in France and the first to win two Nobel prizes, physics and chemistry.

This reflection phrase makes very clear his philosophy of life: 

Humanity also needs dreamers, for those who develop an area so captivating that it is impossible for them to devote their attention to their own benefit.

Nina Simone, pure activism

One of my favorite music lovers, Celestino Martinez, he drew a perfect portrait of this queen of jazz and soul Nina Simone.

With 4 Years, Eunice Kathleen Waynon, he already sang and played the piano with ease in religious services.

With 8 Eunice years, who was already a prodigious pianist, offered a concert in the library of his city. In the front row, his parents were waiting for the concert to begin when they were forced to get up from their seats so that white citizens could take their place.. This fact would forever mark Eunice who would become an active defender of the rights of the African-American population.

After being denied a scholarship, began working as a pianist in an Atlantic City bar. Six hours each night, and there she would adopt the stage name Nina Simone so that her mother would not find out that she was playing the piano in a bar.. The rest you already know.

His biography is titled as one of his best songs: "I put a spell on you"

And much more
