Famous Romanian Women

The women of Romania have always impressed the rest of the world with their perseverance at work and their strong will to be the best at what they do. Romanian women are all about abiding by great work ethic, and standing by their feminist goals, even though sometimes they face sexism and are often looked down upon. But their total badass attitude of fighting for their rights is what shaped the present Romania to be more conforming toward the Romanian women. Romanian women like Aurora Gruescu, Elisabeta Rizea will be always remembered for their dauntless stories toward progressiveness. Besides deserving all praise for their grit throughout the years, Romanian women are also quite popular for their natural beauty—hazel to dark eyes, and their feminine way of dressing, adding on to their already beautiful aesthetics. Can the Romanian women be any more interesting? Read on and find out more about famous Romanian women who are taking the world by storm!
