I do not understand what criteria to use when you say "directed for teenage girls" ... "nothing to do with fashion or crud like that." Thus I have listed 9 extraordinary women who are still alive; who have served as role models, but are not celebrities; whose appearance and/or fashion style had nothing to do with their success; and who have remained positive in outlook and served as role models.

You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience
in which you really stop to look fear in the face.
You must do the thing which you think you cannot do.
- Eleanor Roosevelt [wife of President Franklin D. Roosevelt]
If I am happy in spite of my deprivations,
if my happiness is so deep that it is a faith,
so thoughtful that it becomes a philosophy of life.
If, in short, I am an optimist,
my testimony to the creed of optimism is worth hearing.
- Helen Keller
