Geena Davis is pretty much my hero, and we were thrilled to spot her hanging out around our BUST Craftacular space at Maker Faire this weekend. The actress has a long history of debunking female stereotypes in her films. In A League of Their Own she became a female athlete who made history; in Beetlejuice, she portrayed a warm, loving lady ghost who saved a teenage girl from being forced into a marriage with a demonic spirit.
