This conundrum and its accompanying complacency does not sit well with most of us, but one fearless and fierce female, Robin Rice -- an author and founder of the aptly titled "Be Who You Are" productions, has readied a full on campaign to help shake up these tired notions and set us all straight once and for all.

"Women need to be helping the world move in a more beautiful direction -- a genuinely beautiful direction."
