Today is International Womens Day, a day to celebrate women and all of their achievements. It is also a day to raise awareness about the inequality and social issues women face in society. I could easily pick hundreds of female musicians/girl-groups who are an inspiration to me, but I’ll whittle it down to 10:
Outspoken model, singer and actress Grace Jones is hugely influential in her controversial fashion and music – she was one of the first women to truly embrace androgyny. Jones was the original Gaga; completely wacky, artistic and immensely talented. I became a true fan of Grace Jones when I was lucky enough to see her perform at Wireless Festival in 2011, she immediately inspired me with her incredible energy – I definitely hope I can still hula hoop when I’m almost 70!
