Tomorrow, October 17th, is National Boss's Day! Traditionally, it is a day for employees to thank their bosses for being kind and fair throughout the year.
But today we're going to be celebrating the Boss Babe. What is a boss babe?
I have made a few posts before celebrating some boss babes in the forms of Badass Women of WWII and Inspirational, Badass, and Strong Women in Fiction!
So for this post, I'm going to feature a few of the boss babes that I colored in the book and talk about why they are boss babes!
Jane Goodall is an animal rights activist and the world's foremost expert on chimpanzees.
Jane was one of the first scientists to name her subjects rather than use a numbering system. This was controversial and generated a lot of criticism because numbers eliminated the chances of becoming attached to subjects.
While studying chimpanzees in their natural habitat, she made the discoveries that they:
-Create and use their own tools
-Use language to communicate
-Were not vegetarians, but actually ate meat
-Engage in warfare with neighboring communities and create their own weapons
-Have a social system.
She got her PhD without first having any other kind of college degree.
She has written 27 books to help educate people on the ethical treatment of animals.
Besides being the first woman to win a presidential primary (and hopefully election!), Hillary Clinton is a boss babe for so many reasons.
She was one of only 27 women in a class of over 200 students at Yale Law and went on to become the first female partner at her law firm in Arkansas. She was named one of the 100 most influential lawyers in 1988 and 1990 and was the first First Lady to have a post graduate degree.
She was the first woman elected to the Senate in New York and the first former First Lady to hold an elected office.
By the time her term as Secretary of State is over, she will have traveled over one million miles, making her the most traveled Secretary of State in history!
Forbes named her the #2 most powerful woman in the world.
Mindy uses her geeky childhood as a source of comedy.
She speaks openly and honestly about her experiences as an Indian woman with her own show in an industry mostly dominated by white men. She's the first woman of color to executive produce and star in her own show!
She's a body image role model. She refuses to lose weight just because she's on TV and she refuses to make body criticism a major point in her show for character growth or any other reason.
She's unapologetically girly and she's someone who you'd love to have as your best friend.
Want to win your own Boss Babes coloring book? I think you do! I think this coloring book is perfect for people who don't have the patience for most adult coloring books because there aren't so many intricate designs and tiny details to color in. As well as being full of pictures of boss babes to color in, it has lots of fun activities in it as well (MAD LIBS)!
This giveaway is US only (sorry!) and runs until October 30th at 12:00 am.
Tell me in the comments who some of your favorite boss babes are!
