  1. You have no idea how wide my smile was when I was scrolling through this list that seemed to be never-ending 🙂 I’m truly glad that women are increasingly getting the opportunity to express themselves in these forms of outlets and take the lead. It just shows that we should not limit ourselves but get involved behind and in front of cameras. Let #thereelwomen shine.
