March is Women's History Month. I thought I'd gather up a list of the women who inspire me--who are my heroes.
Here are my ladies. A short list. I know there are so many I'm missing.
Neko Case. Truth-singer. I just saw her live last night. Her singing evokes a nostalgia like no other. She's so totally herself.
Dar Williams. Another truth-singer. She has been with me since early college and has gotten me through a bunch of transitions. And road trips.
Mary Oliver. Favorite poet of all time. Here's a really great poem.
Jean Kilbourne. Courageous critic who calls out the advertising industry. She's super empowering and I love her. Fight the power!
Judy Wise. Artist. I have only found her recently, but I love her. I watch this video when I am un-inspired.
Adrienne Rich. Pioneering poet and feminist.
Tina Fey. The most funny woman on the TV.
Who are your heroines?
