When I first started this series, the term "girl crush" was under fire because a new country song was being pulled from the radio. But I decided I wanted to share a different type of girl crush on The Modern Mosaic.
I am inspired by the women around me. Whether they influenced me directly or through the pages of a book, I've been taught so much about life from women; from following my gut, to treating others with respect, and that everyone deserves to be loved -- regardless of sex or gender. At the end of the day, what's more crush-worthy than inspiring someone to be a better person?
This list is not ranked in any order. All of these women are equally awesome. I think you'll learn to love these bad ass women, as I have, and maybe they'll inspire you too.
