    Okay, so let's kick this off. While I'm still thinking about the best way of making this work, I think we can already start collecting female great people to include in this mod.

    I know that this will be hard to impossible for some older civilizations, but at least for the modern civilizations I'd like to have at least one female great person per civilization in every category.

    So if you have ideas, go ahead, it would save me a lot of research.

    Gudit can be included as an Ethiopian GG.

    Rabia Basri can be an Arab GP.

    Ching Shih could make an interesting GG for China.

    Emilia Plater could be a Polish GG.

    This is all I can think of off the top of my head.

    Wa, this forum moves fast! While you were all busy creating this thread*, I was thinking through the question of gender in Civ from first principles and came up with a more systematic solution:

    http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?p=13453407


    (read that before continuing)

    I started off with a serious suggestion and it ended up in Completely Dumb Ideas... The basic flaw is the idea that Great Women are in a different category from Great Artists, Great Merchants, etc.** Obviously you can be a Great Woman and a Great Scientist. However, I do wonder whether there is something in the argument that it's the best we can do given the limitations of the graphics system and that something is better than nothing....

    [SMALL] * The danger of relying on Tapatalk subscriptions is that you miss exciting new stuff - I also only just discovered Australia, Canada, Sweden, etc.!
    ** Great Priests is more complex. [/SMALL]

    Those unit models are nice, but the face buttons look a bit out of place. The art style of the faces seems so much different from the base style, so I think they would have to be edited a bit to better match the current male face buttons.

    Raden Ajeng Kartini (R.A. Kartini)
    She is an aristocratic Javanese daughter that support and encourage emancipation in Indonesia so woman and man are equal; previously man work and woman stays at home waiting for marriage. I don't know what GP she is supposed to be in-game, but she is indeed a Great Person.

    Tribhuwana Wijayatunggadewi
    Queen of Majapahit that appoint Gajah Mada as the prime minister to pursue massive expansion of the kingdom. She also led some battles herself (Great General)

    Tjoet Nja' Dhien
    Heroine of the Acehnese people of the Sultanate of Aceh in a guerrilla war against Dutch. (Great General)

    Keumalahayati
    The first woman admiral in the modern world, also belongs to the Sultanate of Aceh, and equated to Semiramis and Catherine the Great by several historians. References to her can be found in many Western/Chinese literature. Her reputation as the guardian of the Aceh Kingdom led England to choose a peaceful, diplomatic method by which to enter the Malacca Strait. Great General

    Anggun Cipta Sasmi (really debatable)
    Indonesian singer - now French naturalized - famous in Europe for singing the hit single "Snow in Sahara" and many more. She also represent France in Eurovision Singing Contest 2002 in Azerbaijan. Great Artist

    Gayatri Rajapatni
    A devout Buddhist, queen consort of the founder and first king of Majapahit,Raden Wijaya. Tradition mentioned her as a woman of extraordinary beauty with exceptional charm, wisdom and intelligence. She was an influential figure within Majapahit inner palace and said to laid foundation of the philosophy of the Majapahit kingdom and become a patron, sponsor and protector for Gajah Mada; raising him to be what he was capable of. At some point, she renounced her worldly affairs and retired as a Bhikkuni. She was enshrined in several temples and posthumously portrayed as Prajnaparamita, the Mahayana Buddhist female boddhisattva of transcendental wisdom. Great Prophet

    Ratu Sima
    I actually prefer the Indonesian wiki since it's more detailed. Ratu Sima is the queen of the Kingdom of Kalingga in northern Java (exact location still unknown, recent research leads to Pekalongan). She is infamous for her fierce law against thievery, which encouraged her people to be honest and uphold absolute truth. According to tradition, one day a foreign king placed a bag filled with gold on the intersection in Kalingga to test the famed truthful and honesty of Kalingga people. Nobody dared to touch the bag that did not belong to them, until three years later when Shima's son, the crown prince, accidentally touched the bag with his foot. The queen issued a death sentence to her own son, but was overruled by a minister that appealed the queen to spare the prince's life. Since it was the prince's foot that touched the bag of gold, so it was the foot that must be punished through mutilation. What a great Queen, isn't she? I don't know though which category should she belong.
