Welcome to Feminist Truths

We are reborn! Getting shut down by lawyers working for the mafia (it is a long story) hasn't put an end to Feminist Truths.

The good news is that Feminist Truths is back and I have made it my quest in life to deliver truth to the masses.

The World's 100 Most Powerful Women?

POLITICS - According to Forbes the list down below shows the world's most powerful women in 2010.

However this list is extremely Americentric. 70% of the women are Americans, quite a few of them are entertainers (ie. Does Lady Gaga really deserve the #7 spot? Or Katie Couric #22?)... And to be honest, most of them you probably have never even heard of because they're not that famous.

A lot of the non-American women are presidents, CEOs or First Ladies of their countries, with very few exceptions. One of them is just a presidential candidate in Brazil... so apparently just running for president in a country makes you one of the top 100 according to Forbes.

A few are supermodels or athletes. Seriously, how does that make them powerful? By selling lingerie or tennis raquets?

Its all utter nonsense.

So BOOOOOO to Forbes and their phoney baloney list. They are just like making lists apparently to fill space, satisfy their idiot readers and get attention. Boooo!

  2. Me personally?

    Anyone who stands up for the rights of others.

    I wouldn't pick any celebrities. Their primary goals are money, fame and other ulterior motives. I have yet to see a celebrity who is doing what they do because their PRIMARY goal is to promote the rights of others.
