Name a successful, highly loved female leader who didn't sell out/oppress her peers or ended on a burning stake/prison/whatever?
This is pretty lol.
Firstly, name a *male* leader which fulfils your criteria. It's very difficult to be a leader and not sell out or oppress someone (at least from their perspective)
Also, many great women leaders were burnt at the stake or imprisoned precisely because of your kind of bigotry.
When Joan of Arc was captured, the british gave her a choice of being hanged if she wore women's clothing or being burnt at the stake for wearing men's clothing and they charged her with "witch craft".
This was a successful, independent woman who had achieved great things.. and men burnt her for witchcraft. *that shit* is why there arent as many women leaders. It's because men like you burn them.
As for great female leaders:
Isabella I of Castile
Elizabeth I (who is arguably the greatest monarch Britain has ever had)
Victoria I (who presided over the largest empire ever seen)
Catherine the Great
Queen of Sheba
Olympias, Queen in Epirus
Empress Wu Zetian
