Noteworthy Female Celebrities

From a very young age, we have idolized women who have come across our tv screens, movies, and our stereos. We want to look like them, act like them, and be like them. In today's society, a lot of female celebrities are not just focused on acting or singing. They want to make a name for themselves in the world. They are starting up foundations and charities. They are promoting female positivity. They are making their voices heard. There are many female celebrities I could've picked to mention. I narrowed it down to  5 though, and these are the ones who stand out for me.

 I am quite proud of each and every female celebrity who has wanted to be a role model for young adults. The media may love to focus on every little mistake they make, but you know what? They keep trying to set a great example. Here are some noteworthy  female celebrities!

Oprah- Unless you have lived under a rock for the last few decades I am sure you have heard of Oprah Winfrey. She is one of the most influential women in the world. Coming from a childhood filled with poverty and trauma, this woman built her empire from nothing and is now one of the richest women in the world. Oprah not only dedicated her life to her empire, but has also funded several organizations aimed at women such as Women for Women International and Girl Effect.

Meghan Trainor- This singer has focused her songs on body positivity, female empowerment and modern womanhood. From the moment her first major label cd debuted, she became an instant role model for female youth everywhere. Meghan even removed one of her music videos, because someone digitally manipulated her body without it being approved. Meghan has promoted individuality and in an industry where females prefer to wear clothing promoting cleavage and skin, Meghan has preferred to wear clothing that covers her body, but still looks amazing. 

Emma Watson- Depending on how old you are, you either know her as Hermoine Granger or Belle. Emma Watson has done a lot in her short life so far. She has been appointed as a UN Women Goodwill Ambassador, due to her incredible work promoting education for girls especially in countries such as Bangladesh and Zambia. She also went on to launch a campaign called HeForShe, which is targeted at getting men to advocate for gender equality.

Ellen Degeneres- This woman has done something that most people couldn't even dream of doing. She came out in a episode of her tv show. Even though being the first openly gay actress to play an openly gay character was a stepping stone forward for LGBT community, it did also result in her show being cancelled. To know that would be a possibility for your career, that takes a lot of courage and she paved the way for a lot of lesbian actresses. She also uses her powers for good, by helping out different animal organizations. She often also dedicates episodes with celebrity guest stars to helping out different charities and raising money.

Emma Stone- This actress has never shied away from voicing her opinion. She even spoke up in an interview when her then bf, Andrew Garfield, made a sexist comment. The media had a field day when both of them used the paparazzi to help bring awareness to several different organizations. They hid their faces behind signs that read " We just found that there are paparazzi outside the restaurant we were eating in. So... why not take this opportunity to bring attention to organizations that need and deserve it? Have a great day!" Simple, easy and effective.
