Female Role Models

Over the last few weeks I have had some heated discussions about the concept of female role models. Everyone has an opinion on what a good female role model is and of course we all have our different critierias. This topic really got me thinking when International Women's Day hit last Tuesday and The Guardian published a pull out in the G2 section listing the top 100 female role models. The list included a lot of great and wonderful women - some of the people I liked were on there but a few were not. So it got me thinking about what made a good female role model so I suggest the topic as a guest blog post for Wendi from Wendi B Writes and you can read it here.

Feel free to go over and have a read, tell me what you think of my little list of female role models and tell me who your own role models are.

Sistah..Thanks for sharing this. What upsets me is that in this day and age, there are very few female role models. It seems that no one has home training or class anymore. Reality TV is off the hook full of sex etc. No one wants to hear about how to be classy, but love to imitate bad girls like Rihanna, NeNe leaks and so forth. It is very very sad.
