Real Influential Women Role Models (Real and Fictitious): Ellen Degeneres

      Ellen Degeneres After having her own sitcom and now her own talk show, Ellen Degeneres proves that you can be funny without vulgarity or gossip. On her talk show she has a warm relationship with all of her guests and audience members. She is also a big believer in both animal and gay rights. She had the courage to be, from my understanding, the first character to ever come out on a sitcom. It was a way for her character to come out and for Ellen Degeneres herself to come out in real life as well.

Ellen Degeneres

The part of the "The Puppy Episode" from the sitcom "Ellen" when the character Ellen, and Ellen Degeneres herself, comes out on TV. It was one of those moments that went down in TV history. This sitcom brought a more positive light to the idea of homosexuality while also challenged the negative connotations that go along with it.

One of my favorite Ellen videos on YouTube!
