ten things tuesday...

In honor of International Women's Day on March 8, here are ten women who inspire me in a variety of ways:

Oprah Winfrey: inspired me to get involved in my community, especially working with children and teens.

Lisa Ling: the voice of my generation

Rachel Carson: Silent Spring was eye-0pening.

Sally Ride: dream the dream and then go after it.

Samantha Smith: and a child will lead them. The real reason the Cold War ended.

Fannie Flagg--love her comedy, acting and writing.

Mother Jones: the original voice of those with no voice--advocate like no other.

Maya Angelou: an amazing, inspiring woman.

Alice Paul: indelible impact and advocate.

I love your choices.

And may I add that your (new to me) profile picture fits right in next to that list, because you inspire me. ;-)
