Princessified

This awesome article was shared on FB and shows 10 female role models as Disney princesses. The art begs the question why we reduce any women to the mold of skinny, wearing a glittery dress, and always sporting a big smile. The women Dave Trumble, the artist, chose were: Ruth Bader Ginsberg, Hillary Clinton, Rosa Parks, Susan B. Anthony, Anne Frank, Harriet Tubman, Jane Goodall(in shorts!), Marie Curie, Gloria Steinem (who gets to wear sparkly pants), and Malala Yousafzai.

I think my list might include Goodall and Yousafzai. I would probably include Wangari Maathai, Mother Jones, Maya Angelou, Sojourner Truth, Ada Lovelace. Possibly Justice Sotomayor. I guess with Parks, Anthony, Frank, Tubman, and Curie I feel that these figures are already visible. I would want to draw out some less visible role models.

All of these women are great choices, but what would your top 10 be?
