I am woman!

I have this cute, lil, Lego keyring of Wonderwoman that i got for Christmas from m brother on my set of keys that i see everyday. 
I love WonderWoman and as silly as it may sound, every time that i see it, the inner Wonder Woman in me feels ready to take on the day and whatever it throws at me.
I think Wonder Woman is an awesome female and let's face it, she's damn hot! I always think of her as a strong woman to kind of look up to, as silly as it sounds as she's just a fictional character, but not only is she gorgeous and graceful, but she's also powerful and strong and kicks absolute ass! While still having her hair flowing majestically while she flies across the skyline and looking amazing in her fiery red and royal blue get-up! Before her, the only role models young girls could look up to in comic books were ones who got married and lived happily-ever-after, or bubblegum teens such as Betty and Veronica. But then Wonder Woman came along, who didn't need a man to be happy and was the one who rescued the dude-in-distress. But females all over can still relate, she had to balance all kinds of aspects of her life, just like us. And this got me thinking of all the female figures that appear in the public eye that i personally think are inspiring.
Joanna Lumley
I absolutely love her as Patsy Stone in Ab Fab and is just one of the funniest and most hilarious women in comedy, and her co-star Jennifer Saunders is just as an amazing also. Not only does she make the world laugh while always remaining sophisticated and charming, but she is also involved with more than 70 charities, probably most famously with helping Gurka veterans win the right to settle in the UK.

Tina Fey
Another hilarious woman made a real impact in the male-dominated world of work and comedy and became SNL's first female head writer. Creating a cult-classic, that is Mean Girls, that gets quoted by millions, and creating and starring in comedy favourite, 30 Rock, showing that you can work in a world that can seem like a boys' club, without succumbing to their testosterone ways and that you also can have a personal life without tastelessly exploiting it to become successful. Amongst all this, there is no cliched, female bitchy-ness, she respects and admires smart and talented women, like herself, such as Amy Poehler.

Jessica Ennis
The poster-girl of team GB for the 2012 Olympics, she is a breath of fresh air of hard-work, discipline and graft, in a sea of feckless flakes in our popular culture. With a gold medal hanging proudly around her neck for her hepthalon, brought on from years of hard work, she is beautiful inside and out as she remains humble and engaging. She has also shown young girls that they don't have to strive to a particular female form that society has seemed to deem as perfect, and making sure that girls are not afraid of sport. Her, along with all of the females of Team GB, are an inspiration. Inspire a generation, they definitely did.

Emma Watson
Being part of the most successful film series, she has grown up in the public eye, yet it hasn't seemed to affect her in ways that it has to other young stars. Education has always remained important to her even while balancing Liberal Arts at Brown University with being a fashion icon and playing the part of Hermione in the Harry Potter series. With her fashion work, she has been involved with People Tree, who provide fair trade and organic clothing, showing that you don't need the world and society to suffer for fashion. And despite being a beautiful young woman, her success isn't due to her sex appeal, it has purely been down to her hard work and talent.

Dakota Fanning
Another beautiful, young actress, who has worked with the likes of Tom Cruise and Sean Penn while still going further with her education by studying at New York University. So much so that her absence was noticed at the Twilight Saga: Eclipse screening so that she could take her college entrance exam. She is such a well-adjusted teenager despite growing up in the public eye and realises that she is a role model to many young girls but that she is also just a human and will also make mistakes like everyone else.

 Dame Judi Dench and Meryl Streep
On the other  end of the age spectrum, showing that Hollywood success has no age limit and demanding more female roles in Hollywood, these two women are still going strong and long may they reign!

Ellen Degeneres
An inspirational woman who has always strived for equality and proud and open about her sexual orientation and being strong campaigner for the LGBT community and anti-bullying with her "Be Kind" campaign. Charismatic and funny, she is proudly breaking stereotypes and prejudice, along with her hit talk show

Miranda Kerr
Being a Victoria Secret's Angels, with her gorgeous flowing locks, gorgeous face and adorable dimples, many would may not see a her as an inspirational woman, but she was one of the first models to promote proper nutrition and exercise and the importance of happiness, in a world of fad-diets. She regularly  promotes having a positive attitude and balances her hectic schedule and maintaining an amazing figure, with being a loving mother. Not only a supermodel, but also a role model.

 Kate Winslet
Targeted by the media many times for her weight, she has always spoke out about the importance of the accurate representation of her curvaceous body. When she graced the cover of GQ's magazine and she was photoshopped without knowing, she spoke out about how not she did not look like that, but more importantly, didn't desire to look like that. Not only has she been outspoken about the issue of body image, but she has also been continuously eliminating the barriers that people with autism, face.

 Audrey Hepburn & Grace Kelly
Both of these women are just the epitome of an era of classical and timeless beauty of a time gone by. They don't make them like that anymore. The were both effortlessly elegant and beautiful, inside and out. Audrey Hepburn gracefully portrays all the roles she played in movie, many of them being m favourites, but was always modes. She sent out such a positive attitude and was an ambassador for Unicef, helping in humanitarian issues and travelling and aiding with those less fortunate. Grace Kelly filled the role of the Princess of Monaco also, and founded a Monaco-based, non-profit organisation which promoted the well-being of children all around the world. Both of these women are icons and unforgettable.

This is just a short list of the amazing women at there in the world, there are so many out there that i could go on and on and make an endless list about, but none of them top my mum. She is Wonder Woman in my eyes, for reasons i won't go into, but all of these women are magnificent in my eyes and beautiful, inside and out, and if don't agree, well, i'll leave you with Wonder Woman herself in action below ;)

What women do you think are inspirational? Do you have any role models in your eyes?
