Woman Crush Wednesday – Maggie Q

Maggie Q is one of very few (maybe three if you include Angelina Jolie and Scarlet Johansson?) female action stars in film or television. That alone makes her notable. She goes by Maggie Q because she started out working in Asia, where they had trouble with her full last name, which is Quigley. Margaret Quigley? A very Irish name, that.

Why She Is Awesome:
Maggie Q does a lot of work with animals. She works with the Best Friends Animal Society, Global Animal, Animals Asia and PETA.

Global Animal is an organization that helps animal advocates stay informed.

Best friends Animal Society is an organization that works with the public and humane groups to end the problem of homeless pets.

PETA, or People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals is an organization that intends to defend the rights of animals, though its members do sometimes go to extremes.

Animals Asia is an organization that promotes compassion and respect for all animals, working to bring about long-term change. The organization is focused in China and Vietnam.
