Women? They pretty much rule. Since, like, none of us would be here without them. And American women... well, they're so cool that Lenny Kravitz sang an annoyingly catchy song about 'em. So, obviously, that debate's settled.
But you know what debate isn't final -- which woman from each state is the coolest ever. (Or maybe it is, we'll judge from the number of comments.) Earlier in the year we named the coolest dude from every state, and now it's time to do the same for America's better half. Obviously, "cool" is a subjective term, something you kinda sense/know when you see it. But we also think other qualities factor into what makes someone cool, everything from their profession/level of success and lifetime achievements, to how they contributed to (or bucked) society and their general "I don't give a f***" attitude. We took them all into consideration.
So, without further ado, our super-team of America's 50 coolest ladies.
