A-Z Of Inspirational Women - S Is For...

Hey Cats,

It has been a while since I did a post on this series but we are getting closer to Z now, so I thought it would be a shame not to finish up. Today let’s explore some amazing and diverse woman who begin with a sensational S. There are obviously far to many to mention these are just women I’ve been drawn to in my life but I would love to hear who you would pick to represent S. Don’t forget to check our others in the inspirational women series.

Shirley Bassey

Dame Shirley Bassey is a timeless powerhouse of a woman, who has touched so many lives. Her voice is beyond stunning and she is most famous for the famous ‘Goldfinger’ song featured in James Bond. Coming from Wales starting from the bottom on a tiny contract touring the UK and now a household name that has stuck around for generations. Dame Shirley has tons of classic glamour and always looks outstanding. I have memories of being a teenager house sitting drunk with my mates dancing round to Shirley Bassey and having a real laugh and every one of us knew all the words.

Shirley Manson

Shirley Manson is the front woman of the Scottish grunge rock band Garbage. When I was growing up everyone was just in complete awe of her stage presence. Not only is she talented as hell with a distinctive sultry voice but the woman has some serious style too. Shirley is full of rebellious outspoken attitude and is definitely a great woman to look up. She speaks up for multiple charities and isn’t afraid to speak her mind at all. Shirley has also showed her talent to acting as well and I’m certainly not mad seeing her everywhere.

Siouxsie Sioux

Siouxsie is the queen of punk rock fronting Siouxsie and the banshees, the creatures and multiple solo projects. She has been a massive influence for so many including Shirley Manson. Well known for her fierce as hell hair and make up but even more so for her hauntingly atmospheric music. A new wave, bohemian punk rock flair that is hard not to be drawn to.

Sigourney Weaver

Queen os sci-fi actress Sigourney Weaver is a complete bad ass best known for her role in the Alien franchise. Sigourney kicks some serious alien ass and looks damn badass doing it, not afraid to not look conventionally pretty for the role and more interested on toting up that alien death count. Sigourney has also played some other killer roles in films like ‘Gorillas In the mist” which inspired her to support a gorilla charity.
