Top 5 Female Role Models

OK, I promise I'm not bowing out of this week's Top Tuesday because of vacation, but rather because I just don't "do" role models. Maybe it is a side-effect of being an Asper, but other people just don't have enough of an influence on me to affect how I behave or strive to behave. Someone might have a cute outfit or hairstyle that I might copy, but other than that...nada. I'm not even sure I believe in the concept that one should be a "role model". It sets too high a standard for humans, probably the most fallible of creatures. Even Mother Theresa had her faults. Besides, with the likes to today's role models, parents should teach their kids the Asperger way...I'd hate to think that the likes of a certain ex-Disney star or the plethora of reality stars are influencing the next generation...help us all!

So, head on over to Kate's and Tiff's blogs to see their Top 10's (or Top 5) for the week and if you want to join in, just let Kate know. I'm sure both of them left out the aforementioned examples (or at least I HOPE they did!).

I think role models are highly over rated. There are people I respect, but that doesn't mean I want to be like them.

Interesting point. When I tried to think of my role models I came up with women I actually know whose work and actions impress me.

One is a woman called Sue who is a parent's advocate in the special needs world. She is an amazing woman and is a formidable weapon to have on your side in a meeting!
Another is a woman called Lynne who has relentlessly campaigned for an autistic-specific school for the academically able in our county. She's had so many knockbacks but is ploughing on and looks like she will be successful this year.
