DAILY TRIVIA # 432 Ladiezzz Day Out.

This being the Centenary year for International Women's Day,Q-BIT salutes the ladiezzz in its own way.A rather hurried post.Hope you like it.And Shrillax,tohfa kubool karo :P
1.On the 50th anniversary of Queen Victoria's rule in 1906,a Jubilee flame was taken all along the country to celebrate her rule. When the flame reached Punjab, Bishna and Manda  misheard the word ‘Jubilee’ for X and started writing verses that channelled the anger of the region against the British as symbolised by the Jubilee flame.X became a metaphor for the growing unrest against the British.Today X is used to refer a rebellious, fiery female character in many songs.Whats X?
2.This question owes its existence to the great find by Shoaib Daniyal.Identify this beauty.
3.Though the idea for this competition came from the lady on the top,the competition gets its name from another lady's name who took up the idea forward.Identify this trophy and both the ladies.
4.The lady on the left wrote a blog which chronicled her attempt to cook all the 524 recipes contained in the second lady's recipe book.This blog became famous and was resulted in being the source of a famous movie.Name the movie/the two ladies.
5.Every Lady wishes to own the bag that Neeta Ambani is shown here with.(Almost every time I read a fashion article this name pops up :P)This very famous bag is named after another lady shown below.Name this bag.

6.Aamir Khan is shown here wooing which lady.This happens to be her only appearance in films.
7.Though I have asked this ques earlier I believe this lady deserves an encore.Identify this actress who is known more for her invention than for her acting prowess.
8.Blue-Collar worker:-A worker in manual labour.
   White-Collar worker:-A professional or tertiary-schooled worker in an office environment.
   Pink-Collar worker:- ???
9.Here is Sidharth Malik's addition to this post.Identify these women and what unique feats have they achieved in motorsports?
