Next on our heroine line-up: State Senator Wendy Davis.
This powerhouse for women’s rights did something most people couldn’t: filibuster for 11 hours straight. In case you’re unfamiliar with US filibuster rules, representatives keep the floor as long as they hold the floor. They may not sit, lean on anything, eat anything, drink anything, excuse themselves to use the restroom, and they must remain on-topic for the duration of their filibuster.
We’ll admit, watching her take such a powerful stand got us a tad emotional.
Also, pink sneakers are highly encouraged, but optional, for any badass feminist political action.
