Who run the world? Girls!

 I’m on a bit of a female empowerment bender at the moment having watched ‘Suffragette’ (I know it’s not perfect particularly in racial terms but I still found it incredibly moving and powerful) and having attended a charity night fund-raising to keep girls in developing countries in high school- we saw all 12 girls being sponsored and while they are AMAZING young women I still felt so angry that they had to pay so much for education that they couldn’t actually attend school without sponsorship- education should be free to 16 regardless of race, gender or background. Anyway… here are some wonderful female writers- many of whom have influenced and changed my thinking! I loved drawing authors because it made me realise how little similarity there is between these women and yet they were all united in expressing themselves on paper :) I’m going to try and draw some more women soon- maybe political activists or athletes…

I know this is only a very small selection of female writers- who would be on your list and why?
