18 of the Most Inspiring Female Celebs of 2016

4. Gabrielle Union

This successful actress from hit movies is all about aging gracefully and having a voice. She told Time magazine, “I want to be 65, smoking a hookah with a crop top on, traveling the world, redefining what it is to be a valued voice as a black woman, as an older woman. There are so many dope women that are blazing a number of trails ahead of me, I don’t think it’s going to be as hard as I’m making it sound. I’m over 40 and I’ve never had this many opportunities. What’s next?
 And who can I bring with me?It’s not enough for me to be there. I want everyone to be in the room with me.”
