I think in some form or fashion, ALL women have the capacity bad-asses. We get up every day and show up, looking that fickle witch called Life straight in the eyes, unblinking. We wear our hearts on our sleeves, even after it’s been shattered time and time again. But that doesn’t stop us – we love and nurture and wear everyone else’s hurts and sorrows upon our own souls like a cloak.
We’re fiercely loyal, to a fault, not caring about the toll on ourselves. We’ll give and give every part of ourselves, often pouring from an empty cup. And we won’t stop. Ever. No matter what.
We relinquish control over our own bodies for nine months to an alien invader, then enjoy the feeling of a tiny T-rex rip outwards to freedom. A few hours later, we’d do it all again. Why? Because we are tough, we are brave, we are resilient. We’re all bad-asses, don’t you see?
USA Today bestselling author Alex Owens lives in coastal Virginia with her family, a cranky horse, seven cats and a bull-headed chocolate Lab. She exists solely on caffeine, books and cuss words– but not always in that order. Find out more at authoralexowens.com.
I’m a rocker at heart so I’m totally going to say Cristina Scabbia of the gothic metal band Lacuna Coil. She’s wicked beautiful and absolutely fierce on stage. If she can fight the way she can sing, she’d be the gal I’ll stand behind. Now, if I have to pick someone I actually know, then it’s my daughter. The newly-minted college freshman is absolutely kick-ass without even trying. When she was in grade school, we nick-named her “Enyo” and wow, did she live up to the name. 🙂 She’s trained in mixed martial arts, loves weaponry (she got a collapsible baton for her 17th birthday and came home from Europe with a knife collection. The rest of us got t-shirts), and can handle herself in the front stage crowd of a raucous concert. Through it all, she deals with the challenges of having bipolar II disorder. The overwhelming mood swings often threaten to derail her plans and ambitions but she manages to conquer and persevere. She puts her passion into social justice and the protection of those who can’t protect themselves. She never lets her symptoms make bad choices for her and she doesn’t let her chemistry beat her down. I admire her strength and her beauty and her ability to use her super powers for good, not destruction–and that’s a kick-ass heroine anymore can admire.
