A few times on this blog I've heard women lament the lack of female role models. There are few women to look up to, to learn from, to be inspired by. Its hard then for women to have a direction to follow, for in all honesty most of us are not the lone pioneer sort. I've sorely felt the lack of female mentors in my own life as well.
Although they may not be visible (yet), I know there must be fantastic female role models out there. Perhaps through this resource of a web we can connect to discover the voices we haven't yet heard. Can we start to tell their stories?
I encourage the readers here to share with us about the women they look up to. Be she famous or not, published, in ministry, local, family or whatever please tell us her story. Tell us about who she is, what you admire about her, link any public items like books, blogs, or speeches. Use the comments section or create her own post.
I'm interested to hear these stories and meet the women who inspire you.
