Recently I was reading a celebrity profile in a women’s magazine.The article talked about her fears, guilty pleasures, body image issues, relationships, etc.
Social media and shows like Entertainment Tonight have created a society that wants to know everything about the rich and famous. I don’t much care about their favourite colours or designers. But I’ll admit I’m interested in what successful, creative women think about world issues as well as every-day issues that all women face. (Oprah, Hillary Clinton, Margaret Atwood and Annie Lennox come to mind.)
But as I was reading, I realized that I don’t know what the beautiful, intelligent women in my life think about some of these things. So I sat down and made a list of 52 women I know – but that I want to get to know better.
In the next year, I’ll talk to each one to get to know her views, likes, fears, etc. better. Then I’ll pick an important story in our history, add photos and introduce one great lady each week through this blog. Maybe you’ll know some of them too. Or maybe there’s someone in your life just like one or more of these fabulous women
I’ll also touch on other subjects dear to my heart: writing, family, special moments and hope to find kindred spirits along the way.
