Unfortunately, throughout most of history, women from marginalized backgrounds are more often than not forgotten. In an effort to remember the powerful Jewish and Roman women who resisted during the Holocaust, one Twitter user created a thread dedicated to the figures of dissent. Since it was first posted, Zojacobi's Twitter thread has gone viral, gaining more than 12,500 likes and 5,900 retweets on the social media platform. "We did not go like animals to the slaughter, meek or willing," the user affirmed. "We fought with every breath. Every moment that of resistance." Many fellow users expressed their gratitude for her work, as they had never been taught about these icons in school. Here are 17 of the icons they highlighted.
