Women in Hollywood have never been more powerful than they are today. There are women in the industry demanding to be taken seriously simply by being the best at what they do. There are numerous female celebrities staking their claim in the dog eat dog world of fame and fortune.
One of my favorite examples of this is Jennifer Lopez. She came onto the scene in the late 90’s as a pop artist, and she has a great list of 1990’s comedies she’s been a part of.. After staring in her first featured role as Selena in 1997 she become a face the public would come to recognize. Currently she has a thriving music career, a show in Las Vegas, and a new tv series on NBC. She is breaking boundaries and stereotypes and paving the way for all the women to come after her.
Scarlett Johansson sexy starring roles is another example of this. Even though she sticks mostly to film, she has done acting and lended her voice to some famous animation characters as well. Scarlett may be a seem little newer to the Hollywood scene but she is certainly making her way. She has been in over forty movies since the early 90’s. Her most popular role is as the coolest female superhero to hit the screen in years. Her role as Black Widow has inspired young girls to be their own saviors and that they can do anything they set their minds to.
Even with just these two examples it is exciting to see the potential for women in future roles and how far the next generation will go.
