  1. Ten strong female characters from our own history:

    1) St. Joan of Arc
    2) St. Catherine of Siena
    3) St. Maria Goretti
    4) St. Cecilia
    5) St. Philomena
    6) St. Teresa of Avila
    7) St. Therese of Lisieux
    8) St. Faustina Kowalska
    9) St. Hedwig of Poland
    10) St. Bernadette Soubirous

    The closer fantasy heroines are to these ladies, the more feminine, admirable, appealing and powerful they are.

      Really?

      How about NOT using christian icons, so we can have women that exist and shine beyond their “virginity” or their “faith”?

      1) Hatshepsut, Queen of Egypt?
      2) Cleopatra, Queen of Egypt?
      3) Artemisia of Caria, queen and general of Xerces?
      4) Hypatia, astronomer and martyred by christian zealots?
      5) Boudicca, Rebellion Leader?
      6) Ada Lovelace, first programmer?
      7) Marie Curie, scientist and Novel Prize owner?
      8) Amelia Earhart, pilot and explorer?
      9) Rosa Parks, rebel against oppression?
      10) Valentina Tereshkova, astronaut?
      11) Malala Yousafzai, defender of human rights?
