The name Bianca Jagger conjures thoughts of a rock star muse and a woman riding through Studio 54 on a white horse, but she’s so much more than just the ex-wife of the Rolling Stones front man. Born in Nicaragua to a successful import-export merchant, Jagger has spent her life on a picaresque journey that’s taken her from wealthy heiress, to actress, party girl, and finally human rights activist. Even before a life changing event in South America she was well on her way to being one of the most inspiring figures of the 20th century. Her life story is absolutely fascinating and it proves that she’s more than just a last name or a pretty face.
