Places Named After Women

Of all the places named after people on Planet Earth, 92% are named after men. This list shows some of the 8% named for women. The cover image shows the Italian Astronaut, Captain Samantha Cristoforetti, who held the record for the longest uninterrupted spaceflight of 199 days & 16 hours until it was broken by U.S. Astronaut Peggy Whitson. I am really hoping Earth gets its act together and names someplace Terrestial or Stellar after this incredible woman.
