Marilyn Monroe is celebrated for many things – her looks, her physique, her breathy voice. She’s praised for her “size 14” frame and idolised as the epitome of beauty. And she is gorgeous. But she’s also much more than that.She overcame a difficult childhood. It’s not easy, nor is it always possible, but Marilyn was able to overcome her rough beginnings. The difficulties for Marilyn began early. Her mother, coping with mental disability, gave Marilyn up for adoption, leaving her to bounce from foster home to foster home. She was sexually abused on many occasions and was raped by the time she was eleven. At 15, she dropped out of school and, desperate to escape life as an orphan, she married her boyfriend, Jimmy Doughtery. It wasn’t a perfect life, but she made it out.Marilyn didn’t just want fame; she wanted to be taken seriously as an actress. So she studied with some of the biggest acting coaches of the time and even went to the actors’ studio to strengthen her craft. It paid off; she began to gain popularity among filmmakers and with audiences. Marilyn Monroe was forward thinking, smart, loving, sexy, and talented. She was the kind of woman we can all learn from.
