5 women born in the 1800s who are still alive today

Very few people can claim to have lived through an entire century! These 5 women here have done it and more! They all have in common that they were born in the 1800s! To give you an idea, Nietzsche, Oscar Wilde et Émile Zola were all still alive at the time of their birth! It's something! Bravo to these 5 truly exceptional women! (via Bored Panda)
