Who's Your Shero?

Urban Word of the Day

August 02, 2006: Shero

a female hero; a heroine

That girl just saved my life! She's my shero!


So, who's your shero? Go ahead -- share. I need a little inspiration right now anyways.

this may not be very inspirational and is probably mostly dorky

and i'm not sure it counts as a shera

but i sure wish i had even half the soul and song of aretha franklin

My friend Judith. She kicks butt. And she never gives up or backs down.

Man, nobody wants to play? No one has a female hero?

I'm just not into the hero thing. I couldn't name one person...too many people have inspired and saved me. And sometimes I don't even know about it until I reach a higher level of maturity. And sometimes the simple inspirations end up being the most powerful.

And sometimes the greatest fanfare is really just smoke & mirrors. Bah humbug, right?

Let's see, today my shero is my former boss from NY. She was always mother, mentor, friend, inspiration. She gives very freely of herself and is generous without anyone knowing she's doing it and she put me in my place lots of times.

She just lost her husband to Lewey Bodies Disease after caring for him for a decade. Prior to that, she was caring for her mother and her mother-in-law. And, of course, her kids (who now have kids). All the while being a kick-butt theatre management guru and one tough cookie in a boys' world. I've been thinking a lot about Diana today, so here's my little dedication to her.

I've been thinking about this one since you posted it, and I feel like most of the women I've met in my life are my sheroes in some way. And probably a lot of the women I haven't ever met. At least they should be, because it takes a lot of courage and sheroism just to be alive and a woman these days.
