So here's the thing. I'm not really into criticizing women (with a few exceptions). There's far too much of that in the world, and I don't like to add to it. Last week, I was reading this thing about some female characters in sci-fi, and it reminded me of the flowchart thingy that got linked all over the place a couple months ago. Long story short, while I certainly see the value in speaking critically about the way women are written (and hell, I do it all the time) I feel it's detrimental to dismiss those women. So I got the idea to do this post. And I was going to post it on More Joy Day
, which is today (Thursday) but I forgot and have only just remembered. It will most likely not be Thursday anymore by the time I finish all the coding, so just know that I did start the post with a few minutes left in the day!
Anyway, I have been waiting for the opportune moment to post the "30 Days of Awesome Women" meme. All in one day. Or maybe three. That moment may have been a couple of hours ago, but points for effort.
Behind the cut, you will find the first ten categories and LOTS of pictures. Fandoms include: Battlestar Galactica, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, X-Files, Veronica Mars, Doctor Who, Dexter, Firefly, Community, Angel, 30 Rock, Parks and Recreation, Chuck, Wonderfalls, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, Farscape, ...and I think that's all of them. There will be more fandoms in the later parts.
Also I cheated and listed multiple characters for just about every category, so there are far more than ten women behind the cut.( 22 awesome women )
Okay, that's all for now. I'll be back with 11-20 tomorrow. Probably. And by "tomorrow" I really mean "later today" because it's not Thursday anymore.
In the meantime, feel free to chime in with other awesome women!
