As a little girl I grew up learning a set of rules: I should aspire for marriage, but be independent. I should be emotional, but not crazy. I should speak my mind, but not make anyone uncomfortable. I should be sexy, but modest. As a young woman, I'm trying to unlearn everything. Being a woman is a battlefield of ambiguities and contradictions. For Women's History Month, I collected stories from people who were inspired by a woman. The women honored ranged from their moms to Michelle Obama. Every day in March I illustrated and shared a story answering "Who is Your Shero?" This was a celebration of strong women and an oral history of what it means to be a woman.
