7 Empowering Women Who Should Always Be Your #WCW ...


These days, there are so many empowering women in the media that it is almost impossible not to come up with the perfect #WCW every Wednesday.

Whether you’re looking for someone who’s changing the world, like Malala, or your new favorite lady on TV, like Mindy, you are sure to find some of your favorite new empowering women for your #WCW!

1. Malala Yousafzai

Malala Yousafzai takes every stereotype about teenage girls out there and completely obliterates them.2

At just seventeen, she’s changed female education more than people decades older than her.

She’s the youngest recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize, and she’s one of the most courageous people in the world right now, and definitely one of the most empowering women.

If she isn’t your #WCW every Wednesday, I’m not sure who is.

2. Nora Ephron

Where do I start with my love for Nora Ephron?2

Besides the fact that she was one of the first female directors, and wrote and directed some of the greatest romantic comedies of all time, she’s also the coolest feminist you’ll ever come across.

She has some of the greatest quotes out there, like “You can’t meet someone until you’ve become what you’re becoming” and “Above all, be the heroine of your life, not the victim.” If you haven’t been acquainted with her work yet, I suggest you cancel your plans for an entire weekend and just enjoy it all.

You won’t be sorry.

3. Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

If you are like me and haven’t stopped listening to Beyoncé’s Flawless since it was released a few months ago, then you know who Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie is, even if you think you don’t.

She’s the woman behind the wonderful monologue in Beyoncé’s Flawless.

I was first introduced her, and her now famous speech, as a freshman in college, and it was life changing, to say the least.2
