What Female is Inspiring You Right Now
Olga – My mom is still inspiring me despite her passing in 2008. She emigrated from Russia with nothing, worked her ass off as a woman in tech, and battled cancer like a champ. She took risks and was fearless.
Lyndsay– Currently I am a 16 year old girl in high school-trying to spread feminism to fellow girls and stop girl hate, backing up girls after every sexist or rape joke I hear. Angelina Jolie is a female who inspires me. Not only is she an awesome badass, but she is beautiful and my favorite actress. She stars in my favorite film, “Girl, Interrupted”, and she’s in many other movies that I love. I think her roles are always cool roles that I feel like a man would usually have-not to diss men, Daniel Craig is pretty sexy in James Bond-but I just really admire her! I also think she has a ton of courage and I really admire her for that. The latest was her double-mastectomy. I was somewhat surprised by this, just because I’ve seen her have a lot of courage many other times so I wasn’t too surprised by her coming out with this. Breasts are so sexualized in our society and its cool that she could do that without caring, because even with all the “Save The Booby” logos, its only the breasts that are cared about, not the woman. She is just a big inspiration to me and I love her!
