If you haven't been following newly-elected Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez yet, now is the time. This action-oriented activist's record-breaking upset wasn't her only crowning moment. She's been walking her talk since day one, from challenging opponents on social media and educating people while she cooks on Instagram to participating in global warming protests to make our leaders finally focus on something important. Ocasio-Cortez is the voice of the new generation and we need 100 more Congresspeople like her.
Even if you're not that interested in the youthful Congresswoman, her refusal to be silent or judged as a woman and her responses to critics is something to behold. This list of just a few times she spoke out about injustice, ridiculous commentary on her clothing or looks and other ridiculous criticisms is inspiring as well as funny.
What do you think of the Congresswoman? Do you support her platform and call for universal healthcare and to fight climate change?
