There is an endless list of women who are trying to make a positive change in the world, many of which go unnoticed. 

Of course, most famous women are mainly known due to their roles in films and other public appearances, but that doesn’t mean that these women don’t have lives of their own and don’t have goals of their own. 

On the contrary; many women are doing as much as they can to make a difference in the world, and we will be shining a light on just a few of them in this article.

We will be talking about just a few women who you may not have known are philanthropists and humanitarians, trying to make the world a better place in their own individual ways, without needing to bring it to the attention of the world.

Alex Scott

First up on our list; Alex Scott.

Sure, Alex Scott is an excellent footballer who could probably run circles around us when it comes to knowing the Champions league odds, but even though she has seemingly fallen off a little when it comes to her football career, she Is still doing her part to help people all over the world. 

Very few people seem to know that Alex Scott is a humanitarian/philanthropist, and it appears that this is exactly the way Alex wanted it to be. This speaks more about her character than anything else could, and it shows she genuinely aims at helping people and Is not only doing good things for public notoriety. 

Alex Scott is constantly doing her part to help the world by donating to charities, being a part of a plethora of projects and campaigns, and standing up against any injustice that she sees fit. 

Alex really is an inspiration to women everywhere, and she really sets the standards of what Famous women can achieve if they set their minds to something. 

Natalie Portman

Natalie Portman has done almost too many honourable things to list, so much so that Natalie was even rewarded a humanity award along with £50,000, which of course she donated to charity. 

Natalie has donated a large portion of her earnings from her career to a wide range of different charities, and she takes part in a multitude of different organisations that aim at making the world a better place. 

Even though Natalie Portman is a huge star, starring in an impressive array of successful films and being widely known by the general public, very few people seem to know about Natalie’s ventures as a philanthropist. 

Sure, similar to Jennifer, this speaks to Natalie’s character if anything, and it shows she is not doing it just for the positive public perception. 

Although, on the other hand, If Natalie Portman's efforts to improve the world were more widely known it could encourage a vast number of her fans to partake in her voyage, meaning more people may donate to charities or get involved in some way.  

Either way, Natalie Portman is an inspiration to women around the globe, and her aims at making the world a better place are truly honourable. 

Angelina Jolie  

Angelina Jolie needs no introduction. Being one of the most successful women ever in Hollywood as well as being one of the people that’s stayed in Hollywood for the longest, Angelina Jolie is a household name.

However, even with her unworldly success, very few people know about how she spares her spare time. 

When Angelina Jolie isn't featuring in some of the most successful movies of all time, she is hard at work being a philanthropist. 

Even though opportunities were not as great for women in Hollywood when Angelina was coming up, she still managed to do her part. Furthermore, now that women in Hollywood do have access to more opportunities, many women have followed Angelina’s path. 

Throughout Angelina’s whole career, she has frequently donated to charities that specify a vast range of different topics, and she is always involved in some kind of charity or organisation that aims at improving the world in one way or another. 

Angelina Jolie has been a role model to women all around the world for decades now, and that is likely going to continue to be the case for the foreseeable future. 

The women in which we have listed are but a few of the many famous women who are really trying to make a positive difference in the world, while still going mostly unnoticed by the public. 

In reality, this list could be so much longer. However, the reason why we choose to go ahead with the actors we did, is because they are all well-known women, who the majority of people have no idea that they are making such an attempt to make the world a better place.
