1. Geena Davis

“Whatever happened to Geena Davis? She used to be in movies and she’s not in movies anymore…”, Stewie asked Chris in one of the classic Family Guy episodes, and this was 11 years ago. It was as if they predicted Geena’s career move. Of course, She didn’t stop acting completely, but she did kind of ditch the whole busy Hollywood career thing to pursue other things in her life.

Geena is a woman of many talents. Aside from acting, she is also a pretty successful writer, producer, model, and even an athlete. Currently though, Geena’s most important role is the one of a full time social activist.

The former actress decided to found the Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media, which focuses on increasing the presence of women in the media.
