This selection of Times obituaries from 1872 to 2014 revisits the lives of 125 women who have all, in their own way, played an important part in women's educational, professional, social, cultural and emotional journey over the best part of two centuries.
From pioneering aviator Amy Johnson (d. 1941) and talented singer-songwriter Amy Winehouse (d. 2011), to Nobel-Prize-winning biologist Rosalind Franklin (d. 1958) and civil rights activist Rosa Parks (d. 2005), alongside a foreword by acclaimed historian Lucy Worsley, The Times Great Women's Lives is a celebration of some of the world's most remarkable people.
