Wine and Women Wednesdays

10 Apr

One of the best things about books these days is the amount of badass female protagonists there are. Long gone are the days the damsels in distress ruled society’s vision of the perfect woman and romance (not that we still don’t like handsome princes, mind you). But we are now living in an era where feminism has promoted independent, self sufficient, ass kicking girls into literary and cinematic limelight.

Brave

Case in point – Disney‘s Brave.

We have all grown up with the idea that the fairy tale prince coming to rescue us is the way us weaker sex is supposed find true love. Let’s just all point our fingers at Disney for giving us that illogical idea. Thanks Snow White, Belle, Ariel for creating unrealistic romances for me to swoon over! You ruined my life! But not you Mulan, you…you’re effing awesome. Nowadays though our little princesses are being taught that “Damnit, you can save yourself! If you even need saving in the first place.” Which is pretty awesome. We can really start seeing this big transition of women taking the leading roll as heroes in the original Charlie’s Angels series. And from there… a great wide world of wonderful women emerged.

But what type of morals are these strong women really teaching us? Especially in YA books, heroines have a lot of different takes on love, life and values.

Thus is brings me to wanting to create “Wine and Women Wednesdays” where we can focus on all different kinds of awesomeness of females in literature.

There’s going to be some good discussions so grab a glass of wine, settle in with a good book and get excited now because I’ve got some legit shiznat coming up.

cheers
