In case you’ve been living under a rock and somehow haven’t heard, March is Women’s History Month. Not that we need an excuse to do some serious girl-crushing on our favorite inspirational women, but this is the perfect time to celebrate the trailblazers who have helped pave the way for the rest of the female population. Since that list is very long, today we’re spotlighting 10 women who have not only been recognized for their political efforts but have also become fashion icons.
From political leaders such as Michelle Obama, Shirley Chisholm and Madeleine Albright to badass activists like Gloria Steinem and Marlene Dietrich (she did way more than just act!), the well-heeled women ahead have kicked ass in serious style. These women are more than tastemakers and fashion designers’ muses — they’ve changed the landscape for women’s rights and human rights and refused to stop pushing the boundaries for women in business, politics and media. This month and every month, we applaud them and aspire to be more like them.
