JD Williams Inspirational Women
Back in November the BBC released their list of the top 100 inspirational women for 2015 including Nicola Adams who is the first female boxing olympic champion, the makeup artist and entrepreneur Bobbi Brown, Sophie Walker who is the female equality party leader and many others, embarrassingly many of which I don't recognise. I personally feel as though Angelina Jolie, who is a special envoy for the UN high commissioner for refugees and she has done so much to highlight the importance of womens health, should have been included. Additionally I think that Nobel Peace Prize laureate Malala Yousafzai should definitely have been included in the list! 

JD Williams have also released their own mini list of inspirational women that are more closer to home including Maria Pikulski who after loosing her sight has completed the London marathon, sky dived and walked the length of Hadrian's wall - I don't think I could have done any of that! Susan Oldham who is the oldest woman to have swam the English Channel, which is amazing. Tricia Cusden who has brought out her own beauty range for older women and last but not least, the ever chic Michelle Obama, who as participated in numerous charity work. I think that all four of the women included in the JD Williams list are definitely inspirational in their own way, who do you think should have been included?

In terms of the women in my life, my mum is definitely one of the inspirational women I know as she always puts myself, my sister and my dad, as well as friends, before herself. She always makes sure that we are all ok and even though she can be a little embarrassing at times, as all mums can be, she is definitely an extremely important part of mine and my family's life. 

Who are the inspirational women in your life? Who do you think should have also been included in the BBC or the JD Williams list of inspirational women for 2015?

  5. Wow, I'm shocked that Malala Yousafzai did not make the list! Have you read her book? It's an incredible read. She's so young but you can tell that she's an old soul.
    It breaks my heart that young girls are following the likes of Kylie Jenner and not Ms. Yousafzai.
