This is a sad occasion. Miriam Makeba, singer and civil rights campaigner from South Africa, just died aged 76. She obviously suffered a heart attack after a concert in Italy.  :'(



Rest in peace, "Mama Africa"!

I can't belive she's not yet in here!


Actress Kristin Scott Thomas



I first noticed her in Four weddings and a funeral. All women went weak
for Hugh Grant, which I never understood,
I only thought you keep him, I go with this woman. The Horse Whisperer was
a tough call between her and Robert Redford :laugh:.

;D  This is a great post Chrissi!!  Kristin Scott Thomas's character definitely was great in Four Weddings and a Funeral... very alluring.


Also!  I want to welcome this classic, wonderful and long-running thread to its new home in the Women Today forum!!  :D

I have been so remiss in not sooner expressing my warm thanks to Milli for all the inspirational and interesting women you have brought to our attention over the last month or so. Thank you!!:-*

I must admit that a number of them I hadn't even heard of - probably I myself and a curriculum hell-bent on repressing women's contributions to society and human progress are at equal fault in this. All the more grateful I am that you've posted about them so that my knowledge was improved, as well as my admiration for strong, gorgeous women throughout history and at the present day.


Here's another strong and gorgeous woman, whom I discovered for the first time when on vacation in the US this September. The Rachel Maddow show became my immediate and only "must see" while over there. This is one extremely sharp and intelligent, knowledgable, witty and positive woman with immense powers of expression.  I just love her, and after I returned home I've regularly continued to watch bits and pieces of her show on YouTube, her interview with Barack Obama, her visits to Conan o'Brien and Jay Leno etc. Wow, can that woman ever hold her own!
