    I'm a big fan of Christine Lagarde and Valerie Trierweiler.
    Why Lagarde ? because the IMF does such a brilliant job in running the global economy ? enforcing austerity and empowering the global war warmongering elite

    "7) The IMF's policies hurt women the most

    SAPs make it much more difficult for women to meet their families' basic needs. When education costs rise due to user fees, girls are the first to be withdrawn from schools. User fees in public health facilities make it unaffordable to those who need it most. The shift to export agriculture also makes feeding one's family increasingly difficult. Women have also become more exploited in the private sector workforce as regulations are rolled back and sweatshops abound. The general lack of economic opportunity has meant an increase in prostitution and other black market jobs and indentured servitude"


    The IMF number 1 policy is to force developing countries to cut welfare and cut tarrifs. The IMF is an enabler of a undemocratic one world government. Together with the trilateral commission it wants to establish a New World Order

    I'm not a great fan of the IMF per se. I mean what she has achieved, and the power she holds as a mere woman. You are, of course, right in some of what you say.

    From your flag I can see why you might think that However, I believe even in modern-day France it was a very gutsy, if reckless, action. I'm also impressed with how much she's achieved in her journalistic career, and you have to admit that she makes a refreshing change from the subservient if likeable partners such as the Duchess of Cambridge, the First Lady, Mrs Cameron and so on. I'm not saying that they're 1950s housewives, only that they're not very strong presences.

    There's not really any good girl drummers. Sheila E., maybe. People always think of that woman from the White Stripes.

    It is because women are inherently sexist. Women in general do not consider it to be a woman's role to be "right" wing and a robust leader. Women are supposed to be self satisfying useless do gooders that the Guardian write about in the culture section.

    Evelyn Glennie? The deaf female drummer who was in the Olympics Opening Ceremony? I'd never heard of her before but she is awesome. And the Whip has an awesome female drummer as well.

    Apart from that my female role models are probably:

    My Mum
    Aung San Suu Kyi
    Condaleeza Rice
    Ursula K. LeGuinn
    Annie Lennox
    Mary Wollestonecraft
    Anne Applebaum
    Anna Reid
    Robyn

    JK Rowling for obvious reasons. :love:
    Why?

    All she did was write some **** books with absolutely no original ideas or narrative in them and make a **** load of money.

    Why does gender matter when it comes to 'role models'? >_>



    I don't really have any role models, but there are people that I respect and gender is just irrelevant in that regard.
    Shouldnt matter too much, but come on, to be fair you can 'relate' better to someone your own sex... Just like you can relate to someone your own race, does your sport, comes from the same country etc...

    That's all it is in my opinion... Relating yourself... Thinking your role model is you from the future... Your future self, what will happen to you if you act like them etc

    Amelia Earhart and the Bronte sisters were the first that sprung to mind for me.
