Microsoft has included Edith Windsor and Diana Nyad in a video celebrating the heroic women of 2013.

In October, Nyad, 64, became the first person to swim from Cuba to Florida without a shark cage. The openly gay Nyad swam for nearly 54 hours and 110 miles to reach the Florida coast, where she was greeted by dozens of supporters and American and Gay Pride flags.

“To Diana Nyad, who persevered,” is captioned in the 60-second video over an image of Nyad during her historic swim.

Windsor is the 84-year-old widow who sued the federal government for not recognizing her marriage to another woman and won. Her Supreme Court case brought an end to the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and led to federal recognition of the marriages of gay couples. The case is also being cited in dozens cases challenging similar state bans, including recent rulings in Utah and Ohio.

An image of Windsor outside the Supreme Court is captioned with “To Edith Windsor, who won a victory for equality.”

Also included in the video for Bing, the company's search engine, are Malala Yousafzai, the late Margaret Thatcher, Adrianne Haslet-Davis, Gabrielle Giffords, the women on the front lines, Janet Yellen, Antoinette Tuff, Angela Merkel and Deb Cohan.
