We know that lots of little ones dream of becoming a princess and why shouldn’t they? But don’t forget, there are also lots of other fantastic female role models for them to aspire to, all offering many important qualities worthy of emulation.

Here’s our Top Ten of humanitarians, sportspeople and celebrities who we feel are some great female role models for young people to look up to:

1. Reese Witherspoon is an American actress, producer, and entrepreneur. The Academy Award winner is among the highest-paid actresses in the world and has been named one of the 100 most influential people in the world (Time)and one of the World’s 100 Most Powerful Women (Forbes).

4. Emma Watson is a British actress, model and renowned activist. Her first professional acting role was as Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter film series, having acted only in school plays previously.
