In celebration of International Women’s Day and Mother’s Day, we’re asking:

Who is your Female Hero?

Ronnie Alecio, 29,

“Hildegard Von Bingen – a Christian mystic, Benedictine abbess, and polymath – for being her 12th century mystical vegan queen realness.”


Amanda Richards, 32,


“Hayley Williams, lead vocalist of the rock band Paramore, for her music and how open she is about her mental health.”



Justin Bautista, 29

“It would have to be granny and mum, both women that continue to inspire me daily. No matter what life throws at them they always persevere and show up with a smile.”


Sophie Clifton-Tucker, 30,

Editor of this mag!

“Apart from the wonderful women that make up my family and friends, it’s got to be the grandma in the viral video who attacks some would-be thieves with her handbag. Chapeau!”



Gosia Prudzienica, 30,

Purchasing Assistant at Standard Glas Ltd

“That would be my sister Kasia – a kind of everyday hero. She escaped a bullying boss, created a very successful landscaping company, and still had the time to kite surf and do cross-country cycling while keeping an open house where everyone is welcomed. Plus, she’s always available for sisterly chats.”
