Real Women Superheroes - Barbra Streisand

I guess Barbra isn't a superhero in the same way that some women have been, like Billie Holiday or even the warbrides. At the same time, she has accomplished so many things in her life and started out just a normal, everyday girl, that I think she deserves the "Superhero" status that my awesome lowly blog bestows on select women. She's a musician, actress, and vocal representative of the democratic party.

Not to mention incredibly classy

"I am also very proud to be a liberal. Why is that so terrible these days? The liberals were liberators—they fought slavery, fought for women to have the right to vote, fought against Hitler, Stalin, fought to end segregation, fought to end apartheid. Liberals put an end to child labor and they gave us the five day work week! What's to be ashamed of?"

—Barbra Streisand

To read more about her, here's the wikipedia link - Barbra Streisand.

This superhero seems to dress a lot in black, so here are some Streisand inspired etsy picks.

This is the Barbra Streisand hybrid rose, seeds sold here
I think there needs to be a Charity Blaine hybrid rose, please.
