The Wise One
Suggested age: 40+
Confident, brave, intelligent, compassionate, understanding, political, admired, a leader.
The ultimate matriarch. She's lived through all wars & movements. She fought. She made signs. She marched. She is the strongest woman you know. She has the best & worst stories.
The Sassy One
Suggested age: 30+
Assertive, concerned, positive, caring, stubborn, well-meaning.
A care-giver. Always there to offer advice whether you want it or not. She would give you the shirt off her back. Her love can be overwhelming, but you need her in your life. She'd tell you that a layer of bright red lipstick can fix almost anything.
The Political One
Suggested age: 25+
Outspoken, challenging, compassionate, social, political, a soldier.
The heroine the world needs. She commands a room with ease & she is an excellent listener. If she could, she would change the world in a heartbeat. She wants to follow in the footsteps of those who came before her. Sometimes she falters. She is not perfect & never expected you to think so.
The Young One
Suggested age: 19+
Introspective, challenging, thoughtful, a seeker of knowledge, care-free, impatient.
She wants to know everything there is to know about the world. She spent her life listening to stories passed down from the women who raised her. She is constantly questioning the status quo & searching for answers in a world that is often very confusing.
Payment: Profit share
