Top 10 Inspiring Women
7.51. Angelina Jolie Gallery
I admire her guts, the fact she doesn't give a sh*t what people think and how she is a chameleon. She is and has been, every woman. Shes beautiful, but doesn't rely on it. Clever, witty, intelligent and most of all, she puts her fame to use and what ever her personal reasons, draws attentions to serious issues in our world.
Love her. A true, modern icon.
4.22. Margaret Thatcher
Loathe what she did politically, but I still recognise that shes one of the most powerful women of our times and she ruled in a mans wo rld.
4.53. Hillary Rodham Clinton
Another strong lady who is incredibly intelligent, skilled and sharp. Hated in the US, but they have some funny ideas about women in politics (well anyone in politics;). The real force behind Bill and not the doormat the media painted her to be.
4.84. Jo Brand
Jo Brand is a hugely under rated British comedienne that I adore. She hits the nail on the head about womens rights, equality and patriarchy in a clever, funny way and I admire the way she never conforms to showbizzy stuff, looks or glamour and is truly her own person. Also hilarious, even men laugh at her stand up.
9.15. Marie Curie
A ground breaking woman in the history of science and cancer care. She not only developed a theory on 'radioactivity' she won the nobel prize for physics and also set up the curie research centres that continue today in Europe.
I have gone through love hate periods with Madonnna as she is a woman of many faces. But theres no denying her power in the entertainment world and the fact she came from nothing and made a huge empire and fortune whilst challenging all ideas about women.
5.37. Pamela Anderson
On the face of it, a target for the non thinking 'Feminists' as she fits the barbie girl image. But behind the exterior, a clever, strong and ethical woman who campaigns tirelessly for animal rights. She also seems truly likeable and down to earth.
4.48. Angela Merkel
A modern female politician who has caught my attention. Taking control in the euro zone when all is ready to fall, decisive, strong and commanding.
8.810. Victoria Pendleton
Another woman who the British press have put onto a love hate pedestal. Shes attractive and clearly very competitive and strong willed to win a gold in the Olympics. She is proof that women are a force to be reckoned with in competitive, male dominated sports and also, that you dont need to look like a man to compete like a man.
