It is time to celebrate fierce women again and this time we are on to the letter L. The most obvious choice for me straight off the bat would be Lunachicks but I will save that for a whole other post as they are a huge influence for me but I would be kidding myself if I didn't at least give you a soundtrack to this post to kick you off.
Another fierce musician that took the world by storm and certainly created discussion is the ever talented and glamorous Lady Gaga. You either love her or hate her but even if you do hate her you still want to know what she is up to. Actress, performance artist and singer she can turn her hand to many talents, A huge following of monster fans who feel their awkwardness finally has a home. If you have been watching American Horror Story Hotel you will have a whole new love affair with Gaga. Just watching her hold herself so high in super power outfits completely empowers me,
A step back into the past for an instillation artist who explored sexuality, death and the body,
Louise Bourgeois' work explores bodies and their isolation from the outside world and the domestication of women. Although not associated with feminist art her work certainly makes a huge statement. One of her most famous pieces was Maman. A huge spider like creature that represented the strength and protection of mothers,
Lily Allen is the personality the UK mainstream charts needed. Gobby and outspoken in all the good ways and she certainly channels that into her music .She is funny and rocks that London cheek. After having success in the charts herself she launched her own record label and supports other artists. With creative videos and bags of style not bad for someone who dropped out of school at 15. She stands up for what she believes in even if it means speaking out to the houses of parliament. Also famous for making trainers and dresses cool showing you can be a tom boy and still look bitching in a dress.
