In a world that’s full of social media, filters and a lot of other stuff it’s easy to get mixed up in all the shiny things. But we think it’s incredibly important to have solid women to look up to, that are doing amazing things and seem to have it all together. While the news and news sources tend to focus on all the bad going on, there’s still a LOT of ladies doing some pretty remarkable things that have us in awe over them. We thought it would be fun to chat about some of the fierce females we admire to bring a little positivity to your day.
She was a gymnast that made waves in the Olympics this past year. Not only is she a powerhouse athlete but she made history by becoming the first African American woman to take the gold medal for the individual all-around. WOW, right? You may recall Gabby was dealt some pretty harsh criticism during the Olympics in 2016 related to her appearance, but she held her head high and kept positive breaking more walls down in doing so. In fact, she even created a “Shero” Barbie that was launched shortly after the Olympics. Aside from being an athlete, it’s clear Gabby is determined to help spread love and body positivity throughout the world.
We can all agree that Michelle Obama is a remarkable woman. She’s set forth to do some pretty incredible things in the US like working to end childhood obesity, among many other community based campaigns she’s worked on during her husband’s presidential term. Of course, she’s made waves as the 1st lady for her style. But we can’t deny the fact that she’s held the title of the first lady with such grace and passion, all while raising a family.
Regardless of your political beliefs something that we can all agree on is how fierce of a female she is for being the first woman to get so close to becoming the president of the United States. The fact that the US had a woman running for president alone, is history for sure. We can all admit that it’s a position only a fierce female would stand to consider as an option for her life, and the fact that Hillary stepped out there to be the first is proof that there are other women in the country that can get up and be fierce along with her.
While she’s known for being a fun and funny host on her daytime talk show, Ellen isn’t just about the jokes. She’s done her part to raise awareness for the LGBT community and raising awareness for breast cancer. The fact that she’s made it a priority to raise awareness for causes that effect so many people in so many ways, all while building and maintaining her entertainment empire is definitely a fierce female if you ask us!
