Inspiration: Odd Girls

 Any girl who is strange, weird or just a little bit 'off' according to the rest of the world. To me, they're just awesome.

Kay Kasparhauser Goldberg, RISD fashion design student

Allison Harvard, artist and America's Next Top Model contestant

Wednesday Addams

Enid Coleslaw

All members of Hole, past and present

Liza Thorn, lead singer of BRIDEZ

Ginger and Brigitte of Ginger Snaps

why are you only posting white women? you claim to be a feminist, but as common for many modern feminists, leave women of color out of the equation.

Kay is original, I've never heard of her before! Thanks for sharing the list...I'm a Courtney fan as well.

I think Tavi Gevinson would make a cool addition too, and the Daria cartoon which used to be on MTV

Looking forward to more wierdness.

@ anonymous: isabel's list of all-white females isn't necessarily a rejection of feminism per se. there's a big difference between a list of cultural inspirations, and a list of feminist heros. i hardly think wednesday addams (a fictional character picked because she's she's quirky) and a black feminist like, Barbara Smith, are comparable.

if i were to pick my 4 top surrealist artists from the 1920s - they'd be all white. i'm not consciously neglecting the work of artists who happen to be coloured. i'm merely picking those that, at a particular point in time, appeal most to me.

there is a tendency in western feminist discourse to focus on white women . but i don't think this post is a reflection of this trend. at all.
