Extraordinary Women of Style, Substance, Passion, Vision, Talent . . .
Today and from the past. This board began simply as ladies of style, but I couldn't resist expanding to women who seemed to have a veracious need for independence and the desire to go beyond limits!
Linda McCarthy with Paul. Although she grew up rich, she left a legacy of progressive causes including vegetarianism and kindness to animals. So sad that she died so young. Thankfully, her daughter Stella follows in her footsteps.
Vanessa Redgrave again: I adored her in Julia, but my favorite role of hers was as Ruth Wilcox in Howards End.
