8th March is the day when the whole world celebrates the Women around the world for being an eminent part of the society. Why did we feel to need a day like this? Well, there are years of neglect and struggle for equal rights behind it. But are we able to admire the underlying style of these female achievers completely? Maybe not. Let’s check out the 8 mesmerizing female icons and their style this women’s day.
- Neerja Bhanot
She is India’s youngest peacetime military award recipient, Ashok Chakra. The 23 yr old senior flight attendant, Neerja gave her life while shielding 3 children from the terrorist attack during flight. Why are we featuring her? Because sometimes we fail to realize that a woman is admired not only for her good looks but also because of the acts of bravery which are hidden in them.
- Amal Clooney
Amal Clooney made noises across media when she married George Clooney. Little did we know that it is not going to be an another celebrity-marries-beautiful girl story. Amal is a celebrated lawyer and has been handling high-profile cases on International issues. She has been able to give “proper” answers to the sexist media attitude which tried to personify her as another pretty girl with her no-nonsense attitude. She is the best example of beauty with brains.
- Princess Diana
She was a commoner and still ruled the hearts of masses like a princess. The true princes of Britain were loved and adored by the people for her genuine smile and unmatched beauty. The beauty which shows vulnerability and intelligence at the same time. She worked for various projects of UN actively and kept her unique identity alive and separate from the royal family of Britain. No wonder that people mourned on open streets in the count of thousands when this pure soul left us after an accident.
- Aung San Suu Kyi
One of the most prominent Political prisoners, Aung San Suu Kyi spent 15 years under house arrest and never stopped working for bringing democracy back to Myanmar. The lady got many salutes from the world in the form of Rafto prize (1990), Nobel Prize for peace in 1991, the International Simón Bolívar Prize (1992) and the Jawaharlal Nehru Award (1993) by India along with many more. Her iconic look using the flower as accessory depicted every value she has fought for, grace, love, and peace.
- Angela Merkel
Angela Merkel is the first female Chancellor of Germany who took the leadership in 2005. Trained as a Physicist, Angela made it a point to be never undermined in any sense and by anybody. Her impact on International politics is so hard to ignore that even US government caved in and bugged her. Nonetheless, she retaliated this openly.
In Angela, you can see a lady wearing warm colors to make everyone around her at ease and at the same time having sheer determination in her eyes to get what she wants. There are very fewer people who can balance power and humility so well.
- Oprah Winfrey
One of the most fearless women in modern times, Oprah Winfrey made it in media world by making media world embrace emotions in its rawest forms. She performed well and then reinvented herself as one of the most successful Talk show hosts in history.
Glamor is not exclusive from the overall personality of Oprah and when it comes to mind that how a modern, competent and independent women should be, Oprah instantly comes in mind.
- Billie Jean King
Billie Jean King proved her mettle and beliefs in the famous “Battle of Sexes” on September 20, 1973, at the Houston Astrodome. She defeated Bobby Riggs in straight sets in front of 50 million audiences for the demand of equal paycheck for female players.
