“Who’s on heroine?”
That was my friend’s confused response as she entered my conversation on my preference for a strong female lead in my media selection. I had said that the women I enjoyed reading, listening to and watching are all heroines.
But the more I look at my own life, sometimes I don’t act the heroine. In fact, many times in my life, I have played the victim, the best friend, and even the female in the supporting role. Seeing as I can choose my own leading lady, it just doesn’t seem right that it being anyone other than myself.
And this female lead can be stronger, better, faster, smarter, and skinnier.
