We all need heroes. Joseph Campbell wrote numerous books on the importance of the hero’s journey. Yet where are the heroines?
Even as an adult woman, I felt inspired and encouraged by the women portrayed in these women. Al of them pushed forward against great odds. I loved the gutsiness and innovation of the women in the film hidden figures. And my heart soared when Diana charged the enemy and inspired and army of men to follow.
There are real world living heroines living among us. We need to shine a light on them for more women and girls to see and be inspired.
