Monday Menagerie #15

 


 

Women who WORK IT.

There are way too many inspiring women out there to compile them all in one Menagerie, but this is an itty bitty selection of women who stood out to me this past week.


 

Baddie Winkle.

Holy smokes, I seriously adore this woman!!!!  I know her whole getup is purposefully styled and meant to “impress” in a way, but you can just see the genuine spirit in this woman, the pure love for irreverence, silliness, and fun.  I think it’s SO cool that her family takes part in this, and helps to share her sweet funness with the world.

(check her Instagram, I was dying all over the place looking at it!!)

ELIZABETH HOLMES

She’s the “World’s Youngest Self-Made Female Billionaire”.  Yup.

“She dropped out of Stanford her sophomore year in 2003 to found Theranos, a company that develops more effective, easier-to-use blood tests.  At the age of 31, Holmes was named the world’s youngest self-made female billionaire.”

Read more and watch this interview with her from Makers.

Julie Taymore

I caught this interview with her on Alec Baldwin’s Here’s The Thing (one of my faaaaave podcasts).  I never heard of Julie Taymore before, and was surprised to learn that she co-wrote and directed one of the most beautiful films of all time (in my opinion), Across the Universe, among many other grande accomplishments in film and theatre.

These Rascally Feminists

French Feminist Group “Renames” 60 Paris Streets For Notable Women In Overnight Stunt.  How great is this?

 


 

This Fictional Mom and her Superhero Son

What a fun and clever way to approach a comic book series.  I love this.  (read the article via Good.)


 

Rebekah Steen for Goldfish Kiss

Rebekah Steen.

She runs this little blog called Goldfish Kiss, it’s something simple and just lovely to look through.  She’s an artist, traveller, and beach-junkie– three things I can’t get enough of.

The Women Behind Daughters Rising and Rise Up Shop

They’re fighting sex trafficking and empowering young women through their non-profit Daughters Rising, while also supporting artisanal handiwork by selling beautiful goods (really beautiful!!) through their Rise-up shop.  Good stuff all around.

The First Female Army Ranger Grads

As most of us know already, the first two women to ever make it through the Army Rangers training program graduated just recently.  Impressive on so many levels, and certainly inspiring.

“I was thinking really of future generations of women that I would like them to have that opportunity so I had that pressure on myself,” Griest said. “And not letting people down that I knew believed in me, people that were supporting me.”  Story via NPR.org

Fiona Hall

I stumbled upon the artwork of Fiona Hall the other day, looking through some images of this year’s Venice Biennale art show.  She is considered one of the leading contemporary artists in Australia today, and her exhibition at the Biennale–entitled Wrong Way Time— is ” an immersive installation that deals with global political, financial, and environmental issues and events.”  Read about her and see more amazing artists in this article and slideshow from Buro 24/7 .

Lake Bell

A couple nights ago I watched the movie “In a World…“, directed by and starring Lake Bell.  Loved the movie and the entire cast, and Lake Bell is now my new fave actress.

These Ladies.

“Find Your Sanctuary”.  Grown women talk about slowing down and cherishing moments of life. It is genuinely touching and moving.
