Today, in celebration of International Women’s Day, Madame Tussauds attractions across the U.S. chose a variety of strong and empowering female figures to highlight at the front of their attractions and various iconic landmarks around the nation (Pictured: Madonna wax figure at Madame Tussauds Las Vegas).
These legendary women were chosen for inspiring others by leaving their unique imprint on society, forever changing lives in some way. In Las Vegas, Madonna is being honored for not only her strong will to break down barriers in the music industry, but for her impact on society through her philanthropic efforts, inspiring movements, and so much more.
Celebrating females from all walks of life that inspired others by leaving their mark socially, politically, or artistically, figures included Rosa Parks, Marie Tussaud, Serena Williams, Laverne Cox and more.
It’s all in the name! The success of the famed brand is based on the drive of one inspirational entrepreneur, Marie Tussaud. Born Marie Grosholtz, her incredible talent and determination, made her one of the most known and successful artists and entrepreneurs of her era, and history. Rising to fame during the French Revolution and opening her first permanent exhibition in London in 1835, Madame Tussauds legacy still lives today with over 23 unique locations around the globe.
