4 Female Fictional Role Models and Life Lessons they Taught me.

It is Day of the Girl, so I thought it was a perfect opportunity to tell you about which female characters inspire me to be the kind of person I am today. I was actually planning on posting this yesterday, but I wasn’t feeling 100% and then I found out this morning it was Day of the Girl, so I think it was fate 😛

I’m so disappointed by the lack of Spinster’s Club fanart.

 

Lottie from Holly Bourne’s Spinster’s Club series is the character that actually led me to write this post. She’s a kick-ass feminist, sex-positive romantic, outspoken and super smart.

What she taught me:

You should fight for what’s right, even if it’s hard, but mental health is very important so don’t lose yourself in the process.

Every little action adds up to something much bigger.


Arabella Celestine Idris Jezelia of Morrighan (Lia)

Lia from The Kiss of Deception Series by Mary E. Pearson has inspired me ever since I finished The Beauty of Darkness. Not only did I steal her name (hehe), her mentality and individuality inspired me to be a better person.

What she taught me:

Every story has multiple sides and you shouldn’t judge before knowing the full story. Not everything is how it seems.

Trust your gut. Trust yourself.


Hermione Granger

Hermione from the Harry Potter series by JK Rowling has inspired girls for years and I’m still a little sad I only got to know her when I was almost an adult. Hermione is smart, determined and wants to do right by everyone.

What she taught me:

Stand up for those who can’t stand up for themselves.

Be unconditionally you, don’t ever diminish your intelligence because other’s don’t appreciate it.

Reading is cool.


Fa Mulan

 

Mulan. Also a good drawing reference for someone holding a sword
fanart by ?? I can’t find the original artist.

 

Mulan from the movie with the same name is one of the strongest female Disney characters I’ve yet encountered. She is strong, won’t give up and is willing to sacrifice so much for her family.

Girls. Kick. Ass.

You don’t have to be strong to win, being smart is key.
