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.

heck yeah!! you know what a badas biatch this makes her?! First of all to be Indonesia's Minister, second to be incorrupt enough not to take bribe from the illegal fishing boat and sink them instead unlikely many of our politicians who'd done complete opposite. Third, everything else that she has done in her position #badderthantaylor

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 :)
