Who are your favorite female characters? Fictional characters…..not real people. You can’t chose me
kidding. Let’s broaden it to TV/film/novels.
I can think of three right off the bat.
1. Scout Finch from To Kill a Mockingbird – What’s not to like? She’s curious, independent, loves to read, learns life lessons from her elders, has a dawning awareness of racism and has a soft spot for Boo Radley. Plus, for those of you who liked the movie, the actress who played Scout and I looked alike. Kind of.
2. Jessica Jones – This girl has it all going for her. In an alcoholic, superpowered, acerbic, brilliant, PTSD, independent sort of way. I think I love her because I recognize some tiny bits of myself in her, but she is to the nth degree. Of course, she’s a comic book character, so there you go.
