Taylor Swift is trying to rebrand herself from an "innocent girl who cries while writing love songs" to a "heartless tyrant who sits on a golden throne surrounded by snakes," but the internet isn't buying it. When @xnulz posted a still from Swift's music video "Look What You Made Me Do," asking people to "Name a badder bitch than Taylor Swift," they started an unstoppable storm of stories celebrating strong women throughout history.

From determined politicians and activists to artists and performers, these women have been pushing society to change for the better long before Taylor Swift dropped her album Reputation. Bored Panda has compiled some of the most hilarious and inspirational replies to the challenge. Scroll down to check out the responses, upvote your favorites and let us know if you agree with the Internet on this one in the comments.

What is fucked up is that I was born and raised in Poland but never heard of her untill now. All the war heroes we talked about in school were men.

This girl is Malala Yousafzai, and is beyond brave...She now travels the world,advocating the importance of education for women in various countries,a woman that is so determined that even the Taliban couldn't stop (despite an attempt on her life)...It must take so much courage to stand up for what you believe in ,in her circumstances...What a wonderful, inspiring young woman.

Really? Did you even read any of the TRULY inspiring responses? You're in absolutely no danger here and so what's so bad ass about you and your sign? It might as well read "Look at me! Look at me!" You're not facing down a tank or anything. What is it exactly that you think you've accomplished? Self-indulgent vulgar twit does not equal bad ass. Sigh...

This woman is just an idiot. That sign is literally nothing more than a personal insult. It offers no substance whatsoever (no issue, no solution, nothing to make you ponder). If you have an issue with what someone does/says, address the damn issue, don't just spout off an insult.

I'm disappointed this has so many upvotes. One of the top criticisms of Trump is that he resorts to bullying and name-calling. How is calling HIM names show that we're above such tactics? In my opinion this was a wasted opportunity to express real concerns in favor of a nice chuckle.

You have been downvoted already and that's so frustrating. Bored Panda is full of people who ignore what people say and just see the thing that triggers them and react based on it. The saddest part of all is that you seem to be on their side. This is why SJW's are so awful.

There are comments on here about women fighting Nazis and escaping slavery.. and you're holding a sign up in a place where you have every right to hold up that sign. Have you no shame? Are you serious? And to the message in your sign: it takes one to know one.

As an Irish woman I completely agree with you Muiscon, Mary Robinson made her name by campaigning tirelessly in the 70s for women's rights and in the 80s for the right to abortion. I know this as a fact because my mother worked with her. We have had referenda about abortion. And the politicians have done their job by putting it forward. I am ashamed to say no one is to blame but the voters of Ireland. It was the voters of Ireland that said no.

Ok I mentioned this earlier but here's what Grace did in part...Grace O'Malley an Irish Piratess who held off the English, got Queen Elizabeth to side with her against the Queen's own captain, robbed and stole many English ships with her men, married twice, taking her second husband's fort as collateral as she declared divorce to him. Had a lover- a Spanish sailor from the Armada when it broke apart on the Irish shores, had a child on board ship and then got up and led her men to victory when they were losing as she was giving birth. She died peacefully at a late age too :)
