Greetings Good People,

It’s been awhile since I’ve participated in the weekly, social media tradition that is Woman Crush Wednesday (#WCW), so I figured I’d put on my groupie hat and have at it. There’s a long list of women in the public eye that I’ve had a little boy crush on, but there’s only a certain percentage that I can say I have genuine respect for. Whether it was through their art or message—if there’s a difference—the following entertainers, scholars, and activists have kept my attention and have shown me why women are so dope. Hopefully, I’ll be able to meet one of these ladies one day.

A man can dream, right?
