A ‘strong female character’

DOES NOT NECESSARILY MEAN

  • a character who is physically strong
  • a character who is mentally strong
  • a character who is emotionally strong

ABSOLUTELY MEANS

  • a character who makes her own choices, even if they’re mistakes
  • a character whose point of view is explored at least briefly
  • a character who is the hero of her own story whether she knows it or not

And that’s just a strong character, really.


So many expectations…They make you sing and sing and sing. Be gentle. Love your husband. Be pure. Bear his children. Be beautiful. Remember your courtesies. Fade into the background. Stay silent. Want nothing. It’s too much, and it means too little. No matter what you do, your worth is next to nothing.
