Random Thoughts Thursday: Heroines Then and Now12:02 AM
Growing up I wish there had been more characters like Katniss. Instead I remember a lot of the Disney princesses being rescued by guys and just crying if something went wrong instead of fighting back or coming up with a solution. Except Mulan...she kicked ass.
But apparently even Mulan isn't immune to tears. Can someone please explain why all Disney princesses cry in the same position? Anyways, I could always rely on books to give me the role models I yearned for when movies where just not cutting it. Here are a few I loved.
I loved these characters...especially Samantha Parkington...she was my homegirl. Can you think of any others I missed?
Now my role models are a little different living in dystopian worlds and what not, but they still have the same basic characteristics of the heroines above that I love. Here's a short video on my current favorite heroines.
Do we have any in common?
Who are your favorites?
