Fearless Southern Women - The Short List

A fearless southern woman is a lady who beguiles with a smile
and tells it like it is.

Rosa Parks - Civil rights hero
Dixie Carter - Actress
Henrietta Lacks - Mother of the HeLa cell
Rose O'Neal Greenhow - Confederate spy
Harper Lee - Author of To Kill A Mockingbird
Ma Rainey - Mother of the Blues
Oprah Winfrey - Duh!
Kate and Jean Gordon - Social reformers and suffragists

The list could go on and on and on. Who would you add to this list and why?

Margaret Mitchell- in a time when woman writers weren't taken seriously she made her way.

Caroline, you are so right. Margaret Mitchel must be added to the list.

I'd love to hear others.
