The legacy of women has dwindled over the years. From fictional characters like Bella Swan who throws herself off a cliff because Edward left to selfish Daisy who can’t decide if she loves Jay Gatsby or not. A strong heroine is not only a great selling asset for a book, but also a character people will remember for their strengths and courageous actions.
For a few moments, set aside your Juliet’s and your Kathy’s and take in the idea of these 4 ladies of literature who not only set a good example for young readers, but also stand up for themselves and radiate a sense of confidence all women should possess.
