It’s International Women’s Day today, so I want to greet all my uterus carrying bad asses a happy day!
To tell you the truth, I still hesitate referring myself as a woman. I’ve always associated the word to an older female, someone wiser, someone who have already accomplished more than ten things in her life, and I just don’t see myself there yet. But in celebration of today, I’d like to list down (some of) ten (not in any particular order) of my favorite women. Women who have inspired me and just makes me so god damn proud I’m a woman. Spoiler alert: Tina Fey will be here, obviously.
- Joanne Rowling
Who taught me that books can change lives. And how writing can be monetizing.
- Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta
Who taught me that making a moniker for yourself is perfectly OK. And also disco sticks.
- Vera Mindy Chokalingam
Who taught me that flirting, if done right, is OK. And how to rock a dark lip.
- Amy Meredith Poehler
Who taught me that marriage that end in divorce is still a success. And a cackling laugh is a major asset.
- Sarah Kate Silverman
Who taught me that women can pull off a penis joke as well as any man. And brunettes can too have more fun.
- Amy Beth Schumer
Who taught me that it’s OK to make fun of your friends. Especially when they really deserve it.
- Malala Yousafzai
Who taught me that kids can make a difference. And also how to make Jon Stewart fall in love with you.
- Björk Guðmundsdóttir
Who was the very first person who taught me that it’s more than OK to be weird. And also I can marry a cat.
- Kathryn Ann Bigelow
Who taught me how much women can be so courageous. And how to be classy when you’re sitted in front of your ex-husband in Oscars.
- Elizabeth Stamatina Fey
Who taught me so much it’s ridiculous.
So which woman inspires you? Are you following my blog? Maybe you should. Since it’s Women’s Day and all.
