Maybe we should start a list of women that we genuinely like?

For their brains, talent and looks? Just to counteract of increasing list of women that put our backs up? For me I would say Jo Whiley she's bright, attractive and looks great for a mum of four at 45. I love her! (Now I know someone is probably going to put her in our other list!)

I agree with most of these, but for those who mention Camilla P-B would you also add Diana to your lists if she was still alive? Am really in awe of her re-invention (not a fan of either tbh)

Emma Thompson she seems so compassionate and intelligent
