Here's a little girl power for your Instagram feed. Julie Van Grol, an illustrator and art instructor in Minneapolis, Minnesota is illustrating 100 powerhouse women as a part of a daily illustration project called "100 Days of Badass Babes."
For the last couple of weeks. Van Grol has been posting her babe of the day to Instagram with the hashtag #100daysofbadassbabes. The selected subjects range from supreme court justices to rock band members, all illustrated with vibrant, funky patterns and bright colors. Lucky for you, she's only a quarter of the way into the project so you're all invited to follow along for the duration of the 100 days. Below are a couple of the illustrations from the collection so far.
Day 4 of #100daysofbadassbabes: the one and only Ruth Bader Ginsburg. She was the second woman appointed to the SCOTUS and the first Jewish woman to have the job. She's been fighting for women's equality for over half a century and stands up against discrimination of all kinds. Folks, give a curtsy and a fist pump for our girl #RBG . . #ruthbaderginsburg #feminism #babe #scotus
Day 7 of #100daysofbadassbabes brings us Malala Yousafzai. Malala is only 19 and has already done so much through her advocacy for education--especially for girls and young women. Education is a right that so many of us take for granted. And even at a young age, Malala saw that the key to fighting hate, poverty, abuses of power, and injustice all traces back to education. Think of all the untapped potential that's out there--and how we would ALL be better off if we recognized this necessity. Malala and her family are such inspirations to so many, and we need to follow their example. #malalayousafzai #educationforall #illustration
