One of the questions we asked on our Feminist Theory + Lemonade conversation wall was: Who is a woman/womxn who has inspired you during this past year? We thought we’d share the responses here, as we approach our next event, which is: Galentine’s Day, a celebration of female friendship.

Who is a woman/womxn who has inspired you during this past year?

  • Jessica Todd + endless mores…
  • Hillary Rodham Clinton, since 1993 and on…
  • My mom Stephanie ❤
  • Any that refuse to shut up. And there are several.
  • Pam Raiford ❤
  • Nancy Pearson, Badass Extraordinaire ❤
  • My grandmother
  • My mother
  • Atyia Martin (Chief Resilience Officer – Boston) ⭐ Yes!
  • Abbi + Ilana ❤
  • Women in my community who I met thru activism
  • My 84 year old mother!
  • adrienne maree brown — read Emergent Strategy
  • Ellen Degeneres
  • Numerous women scientists / environmental practitioners working to save the planet
What a list! And we love that many had hearts or stars added to them. We could really feel the love in these responses! Who would you add — who has inspired you this year?
