We're often asked, 'who inspires you?' WELL...
All of the women above, are who we look up to. They have pushed themselves to make a difference, for example Lady Gaga challenges beauty standards, and protests in the name of the LGBT community and more. Ching Shih was one of the most successful female pirates and created the pirate code. All the women above, are powerful women who we aspire to be like.
Our work is focusing around feminist issues, with the goal to make a difference, or a change in someones life. We challenge the way people see things, and ask everyone to question why? in our society. Why is Kylie Jenner adored for having big lips and a lot of money when other amazing women go unnoticed? Why do men get paid more than women?
The list goes on and on. Women are so powerful, and we can't forget that. These inspirational women should be the ones we look up to. Please feel free to add comments on who you look up to, and we can add them to the list.
Love, Banshee x
