Being a woman in 2015 and seeing the waves and triumphs of woman's rights, we may forget the work that still needs to be done. From the endless amounts of reality TV that portrays woman, from both the majority and minority, as dramatic and materialistic, to the overemphasis on physical beauty and social media popularity seen through today's "Instagram Model" culture, our fight for true women empowerment is a constant battle against the over emphasis on female sexuality.
When I think of the role models that have had the most impact on my life, I think of women like my mother, Maya Angelou, Phylicia Rashad and Hilary Clinton; women who have used their intelligence and elegance to impact society in a positive light.
We as women and a society as a whole, need to make sure that we are pushing our selves and our future generations for power coming from our minds rather than what comes from our bodies. Education is power and the beauty of a woman's brain will give her more access than she could ever imagine.
