Girl Talk's Top 15 Female Leaders

Girl Talk wants to celebrate just a few of the amazing female leaders that inspire us! We want to bring attention to the power that girls have, and highlight the girls that have embraced that power and used it to make a difference in the world. So, we have compiled a list of famous females to inspire all the girls out there to strive for their dreams just like the leading females of today have.

 Taylor Swift

"Anytime someone tells me that I can't do something, I want to do it more."

Taylor Swift is one of the most popular role models for young girls today. We admire the example she sets for girls, and the encouragement she gives to all her fans. In 2013 Taylor was awarded the Pinnacle Award for having achieved a national and international prominence through record sales and concerts that is rare in country music. Despite her explosion of fame Taylor has remained grounded in who she is and maintained a positive image.

Oprah Winfrey

"The big secret in life is that there is no big secret. Whatever your goal, you can get there if you're willing to work."

There are a million reasons for why Oprah is an amazing leader. Girl Talk loves Oprah's view on life, and how that perspective has allowed her to accomplish so many things, from The Oprah Winfrey show, to "O magazine." She's a prime example of what you can accomplish with hard work, and a true inspiration for all females that want to make a big difference.

Britt Nicole
 "There's a really big world at your fingertips, and you know you have the chance to change it."
Britt Nicole is an inspiration because of her positive, uplifting music. Her commitment to producing music based on her faith and her desire to reach out to people, especially girls, has made a huge impact on the lives of her listeners. Some of the messages in her songs, such as her song "Set the World on Fire," display some really big dreams that ignite your heart and make you feel like you can do anything. 

Malala Yousafzai

"Let us make our future now, and let us make our dreams tomorrow's reality."
Malala is a great female leader because, at the age of 17, she received the Nobel Peace Prize, making her the youngest person to ever receive the award! She is a great example for all young girls who want to stand up for what they believe in. Her book titled I Am Malala tells the story of her fight for education and her dream of writing. This book is life changing for girls and a testament to the fact that we can do anything we want, as long as we believe we can. 

Bella Weems                         

"I have always believed you can do anything you set your mind to."

We think Bella belongs in our top 15 females because she has always worked to accomplish her dreams, even from a young age. When she was just 14 years old, Bella started a special jewelry business called Origami Owl, and since then has built the business into a very successful jewelry line that gave her the money to buy a new car! Bella sets a perfectly practical example for all girls that have a dream, and just don't know what steps to take to reach it. Bella's journey really helps to show girls the right steps to success.

Michelle Obama

"Success is only meaningful and enjoyable if it feels like your own."

Michelle Obama isn't a female leader simply because she is the wife of President Obama. As the First Lady of the United States, Michelle has accomplished many successes on her own and proven herself as a phenomenal role model for all the women of her country. Michelle Obama is famous for her huge heart for serving, and giving back to the community. Since the beginning of her time as the First Lady, Michelle has led many community service efforts and consistently shown herself as just like any other woman.

Cindy Monroe

Cindy Monroe is the founder of Thirty-One Gives and a true inspiration. Girl Talk is grateful for her determination in creating Thirty-One and the company's partnership with Girl Talk. Cindy Monroe's generosity towards Girl Talk and all the women she comes in contact with proves that giving back to others is an amazing way to impact the world. Thirty-One is a truly phenomenal company that any company could learn from.

 Patti Hughes

Being the founder of Natural Life, Patti Hughes is definitely a female leader that Girl Talk wants to celebrate. We are so thankful for the vision Patti had in creating Natural Life, and we love seeing the impact the company has on girls today! The company's jewelry and many other items always portray a positive message and make a girl feel special. There's no question Patti loves what she does, and therefore has been successful with Natural Life.

Julie Foudy

"What a wonderful lesson for all of us in sports and life. Believe. Believe again."

Julie Foudy is a perfect example of female strength. By accomplishing her dream of playing soccer professionally, she is an example for all female athletes that have dreams to make it big. No matter how tired and discouraged you are, Julie encourages everyone to never stop believing. This is a great message for all the young girl athletes out there that are truly passionate about the sport they play.

Rachel Simmons

“Be yourself and you will find, who minds doesn't matter and who matters won't mind.” 

We admire Rachel Simmons for writing her novel The Odd Girl Speaks Out, and for continuing to share her wisdom to help build self-esteem and confidence in young girls. Her words and lessons are invaluable to the Girl Talk cause of inspiring and building young girls into strong women. One lesson she teaches that Girl Talk likes is about female bullying and how destructive it is in a young girls's life.

 Carrie Underwood

"Every day is a new day, and you'll never be able to find happiness if you don't move on."

Ever since her humble beginnings, Carrie Underwood has proven to be a flawless example for girls of all ages. Girl Talk admires the messages in the songs Carrie sings and the way she carries herself with humility and grace on and off the stage. Her song "Play On" encourages her listeners to keep fighting when times get hard because that's the only way to find the happiness in store for you in the future.

  Beth Moore                                                          

The truth in Beth Moore's novels and speeches is always so inspiring. We admire her hard work and enthusiasm in sharing love and kindness to everyone. The determination she shows in traveling all over to share her beliefs and values is a quality Girl Talk loves to see in a woman.
"To possess dignity is to be worthy of respect. Worthy of high esteem. Absorb this: you are worthy of respect."

 Demi Lovato                                                        

"I try to keep it real. I don't have time to worry about what I'm projecting to the world. I'm just busy being myself."Demi Lovato's authenticity in everything she does is a great example for girls her age. The way she is completely honest about her feelings shows girls that they should never be ashamed of what they feel, but embrace their desires and go for them! Girl Talk loves how Demi takes her role as an example for other girls seriously, and never passes up an opportunity to show her true self to her fans.

 Mo'Ne Davis

"No matter who you are, you should be able to do what you like to do and what you've always dreamed of doing."

Mo'Ne Davis is a 13-year-old girl who can throw a baseball faster than any other kid her age, and she played in the youth world series. Her determination and bravery in doing something never done before is a fantastic example for all girls and boys that play sports, or any other activity. Mo'Ne's story should encourage all girls that their dreams matter and that they can be whatever they want.

Sheryl Sandberg

"What would you do if you weren't afraid?"

Author of Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead, Sheryl Sandberg knows a lot about hard work. Girl Talk admires Sheryl for her writing and her success as a leader for girls today. Her novel has proven very successful, and has encouraged many women to embrace their desires to lead and shown them what correct leadership looks like. Her book is a great motivation for girls who want to face their fears and be the leader they were meant to be!

We hope this list inspires each and every person that reads this post to make their dreams come true! If all these ladies can do it, then so can YOU! Don't ever forget the power you have inside yourself.
