I participated in the San Francisco Women's March this past Saturday. It was an incredible experience. The massive crowd turnout and kindness towards one another was something that has refreshed my faith in humanity. I thought that in the spirit of the marches I would reflect on some women I find inspiring that are making changes. I decided to illustrate just a few below. Experimenting with a new character illustration style was a fun exercise. 

Ruth Bader Ginsburg
Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States

 

Michelle Obama
Former First Lady of the United States

 

Yusra Mardini
Olympic Syrian Refugee Swimmer

 

Malala Yousafzai
Female Education Activist

 

Amal Clooney
Lawyer and Activist

 

If you've never heard of any of these women or their stories I recommend looking into them. What women have inspired you?
