Women’s History Month is a time to celebrate the impact of positive female role models that have shaped the discourse of what a classy, intelligent and strong woman looks like. Although there are still stereotypes of women flourishing across the entertainment stratosphere, thankfully we still have some women who have managed to eliminate that negative reputation of women that has developed over the years by breaking the status quo of interiority and degradation.
It’s important for these women to be celebrated because without them, we are creating a discouraging path for our next generations to come. Young girls need to be raised to be future female leaders, businesswomen, and successes in their craft. Here are 10 women who have defied negative connotations and have been female heroines in a society where they are scarce.
“You may not always have a comfortable life and you will not always be able to solve all of the world’s problems at once but don’t ever underestimate the importance you can have because history has shown us that courage can be contagious and hope can take on a life of its own.” -Michelle Obama
