Women’s History Year: Powerpuff Girls to Amelia Earhart

by Annemarie McDaniel

For the October installment of Women’s History Year, I sat down and spent a few minutes talking about women in family, in media, and in history that have inspired me. These role models—my mother, the Powerpuff Girls, Nancy Drew, and Amelia Earhart—each had a unique way of teaching me what being a courageous woman could look like. You can watch it below, and if you want to be a part of the project, send us your own videos at!
