Female actors, activists, comedians, designers, and artists use their popularity for good.

From Coco Chanel to Emma Watson, female influencers are not keeping it G-rated.

Instead, they are using their powerful voices to show young girls and women that we've got this taken care of. That we know how to get things done in this world and it's on US to make that difference.

These famous women are on the same page and it's clear that we shouldn't be afraid to step out in this world and take charge.

Especially if you take a superhero pose. (Seriously try it out, it’s a confidence booster AND looks really effin’ cool.)

With the new (GIANT) release of Wonder Woman by director Patty Jenkins, we've recently seen a new light spark up in Hollywood with a female main character; the beginning of a NEW normal that has been a long time coming. And I gotta say it’s pretty dang cool.

The best line from the trailer comes from Wonder Woman herself, Gal Gadot, and it is “What will I be if I stay?” This is a message to all women that if we stay complacent we will be nothing. Women can be more, and ARE more than what was thought in the past.
