Discussion: Strong Female Characters

This is mostly for will_o_whisper, since we've had many a deep, meaningful conversation on the topic (and the same goes for leskuh and smjoshsims), but I thought it might be of interest to a number of you that I can thing of offhand, and maybe even more. It's this article from the latest metafandom post, titled Ladies, Please (Carry On Being Awesome) by sarahtales. It's more discussion on the idea that we hold female characters up to a different standard than male characters. There's also a link to another article within that one about the Bechdel test, which includes lists of series/stories that pass it (even mentioning videogames such as FFVI, an old favourite of mine).

More musing on this topic behind the cut...Collapse )

Anyway, I thought it might be of interest to some of you. Feel free to discuss in the comments, if ya wanna.
