Creating your own curriculum for Women Heroes

Ok In my research I found there are hundreds of women who meet my criteria for being a woman Hero. Some are Ancestral, Historical, Religion based, Some are Everyday people.

I need to figure out how I am going to fill my school year and narrow down these ladies. Do I let my daughter choose? If I can't narrow them down I know it would be overwhelming for her to do it.

Now I will be honest Yesterday I ordered some Biblical scripture Heroes for girls along with a couple books.

That is going to be my childs biblical studies and I will fill it in with things from my church youth websites and from a womens blog I enjoy very much http://www.womeninthescriptures.com/ she has some study guides as well I want to purchase for myself someday.

Here are the names I decided to start out with and I think would be easy to find material for all ages.
This would be enough for one woman a week for an entire year with a lot of give. They were mentioned more than once on several websites for kids. I know some of them had adult lives but I am going to focus on their positive aspects not their bad choices because we all make mistakes. If my daughter learns of their bad choices that is what I will tell her too and point out if it was their downfall as well.
