Doing 34 the Female Way

Being 34 years old, you best believe we’re going real specific here, and female is the way to go!

Successful women are coming up in their talents and seeing unprecedented fame at this age. I’m going to focus on two specific women: Serena Williams, who was just named “Sportsperson of the Year” by Sports Illustrated; and Amy Schumer, who is currently nominated for a Golden Globe from her role in Trainwreck.


(Just for funsies, let’s not forget Miss Queen B herself: Beyoncé Knowles! She’s got too many awards to list; follow this link to check it out. Oh, by the way, she’s 34.)

Women are topping lists, hitting it hard on the comedy scene, and showing others they are fierce competitors. Williams, took the 2014 victory in the U.S. Open, and continued for another 3 solid wins in 2015. Unfortunately she didn’t complete a Grand Slam with the 2015 U.S. Open, but, her efforts were recognized as remarkable. This allowed her achievements to be recognized by the sports syndicate. Schumer, not only hosted SNL, but won an Emmy for her Comedy Central hit Inside Amy Schumer. She’s now currently nominated for the 2016 Golden Globes in the category of Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture.

The best part of this is that these ladies are doing it their way.

Beautiful, gross, strong, thin, fat, pretty, ugly, sexy, disgusting, flawless, woman. Thank you @annieleibovitz

You may recall earlier this year, photos taken by artist Annie Liebovitz with a semi-nude Williams and Schumer. The photos were for the annual Pirelli Calendar available for 2016. It was the artist’s interests to allow the pictures to show the women exactly as they were in raw un-edited form. A task accomplished and applauded. Williams chose to continue the empowerment of feminism by her chosen pose and clothing for the cover photo of Sports Illustrated shown below.

The cover? Serena’s idea, intended to express her own ideal of femininity, strength & power

Schumer and Williams are showing the world what it is to be strong powerhouse women dominating national attention. As another woman in her thirties writing this, I’m glad to see these two at work.
