Women Who Are Awesome & Remind Me That I Am, Too

This is a shorter list than it should be, because there are so many, some of them mentioned quite recently. But here are two young women who remind me that kids can do whatever they want and that women can do whatever they want:

Emily Yeung, hostess of a TV show in which she learns to do stuff and has fun doing it,

and Savana Redding, who stood up to adults who treated her like less of a person.

Thanks for being awesome. Please share your own in the comments 🙂

    My contributions (besides *you*, xJane!) are female drummers: Meg White of the White Stripes, Janet Weiss of Sleater-Kinney and Kathi Wilcox of Bikini Kill (all riot grrrl or post-punk bands). They’re a rare and strong group of women.

    I’m reminded of a wonderful presentation I attended at ALCON in ’02 titled “Five remarkable women at the Crossroads of Astronomy”; you can see the notes here.
