Let's face it, even though women have come a long way to achieve gender equality, we still have a long way to go. For women of color, the journey is even further and far more difficult. There's something to be said about women of color who manage to beat the odds and become successful in their fields. I'm not saying I am only inspired by women of color, but as a Black woman, I have a greater appreciation for women who dominate industries and also happen to look more like me. Oprah once hosted an event for all the living legends who inspired her. In the same vein, I'll write about women of color who inspire me.
