Show Me...People Who Changed the World (Your Input Requested)

I'm working on a poster design that lists notable people. The goal is for people to be able to filter their thoughts through what they know about these people. I'd like this group of people to be as diverse as possible, so I'm crowd sourcing. AKA I need your help.
  1. The individuals should be inspiring, revolutionary, or challenging.
    Or any combination.
  2. They should include an equal mix of men and women and people from around the earth.
    Men who are famous are a dime a dozen, your help in finding women is appreciated (especially as my perspective is male).
  3. They can be obscure but should be researchable.
    It wouldn't be diverse if we picked only people known to the majority of a western audience. But it would be impossible to use if it included only obscure figures.
  4. They don't have to be perfect, but not evil.
    Ayn Rand OK, Adolf Hitler NOT OK. Not legitimizing that.
  5. Adding a picture and description isn't required.
    But makes this list more interesting. And helps their case for getting chosen.
  6. The poster won't be perfect.
    It is not a best of list or ranking. One person might be chosen for the poster to represent the movements that others played a huge part in. It's not perfect, there have been a lot of people in the world and posters are only so big.
  7. I've gotten you started with examples, suggest away!
    Your input is super appreciated, and in some way if this actually gets printed, you WILL be thanked.
  8. Update
    The suggestions so far have educated me and are more diverse than I ever could have created. Most of my initial suggestions are white Americans. Keep 'em coming.
  9. Henry Ford
    He got us moving, revolutionized manufacturing and production, catalyzed American industry dominance, and (with controversy) did so fairly ethically (at the time).
  10. Thomas Jefferson
    America's most beloved and conflicting founding father.
  11. Alexander Hamilton
    Yup yup yup, we know.
  12. Prince
    Perhaps I should also include Dave Chapelle. More than just a musical genius, his contributions to the art world, unique character, ping pong skills, and bizarre stories of anonymous charity earn him contention.
  13. Zaha Hadid
    Including a building image instead of a portrait so you get it if you don't know her. She is indisputably the most notable female architect and a strong contender for most important architect of the last 20 years. She was an early victim of our 2016 losses but her firm is charging forward with more brilliant projects. Used sheer mathematical brilliance to build unreal structures.
  14. Frank Gehry
    The biggest living starchitect, some people hate him, some love him, nonetheless he has made a huge, wavy, shiny dent in architecture.
  15. Elon Musk
    Do you need me to explain what this dude is doing for the world?
  16. Steve Jobs
    You're holding the reason in your hand (even you, Android user).
  17. Massimo and Lella Vignelli
    Lella's death today inspired me to restart this project. I've included them together as they were an inseparable couple who collaborated on everything.
  18. Frank Lloyd Wright
    Such a boss. Probably not a nice person but WHAT a boss. Marched to the beat of himself.
  19. Hillary Clinton
    Leslie said it best. Also I'm not going to be politically "balanced" here for similar reasons involving "legitimization".
  20. Eleanor Roosevelt
  21. Harper Lee
    She wrote only one or two books (you decide) but their impact on American culture was huge.
  22. Coco Chanel
    I've recently begun to understand the impact this woman had on culture. Huge. Huge.
  23. Franklin Delano Roosevelt
    Considering both him and his wife as each individually contributed to culture in different ways.
  24. Ellen DeGeneres
    Mostly considering her because if you asked yourself what she would do, you would make decisions that would generally make most people happy.
  25. Confucius
    Note that I'm looking for notable thought leaders: Jesus, Muhammad, etc will be included.
  26. Martin Luther King, Jr.
    No caption necessary.
  27. Elizabeth Cady Stanton
    The Boss.
