On International Women’s Day it is worth a thought to consider who you think are the most admirable / interesting / provocative female characters in literature.
www.stylist.co.uk has made a list of 40 gutsy fictional heroines. They include:
- Elizabeth Bennet
- Lisbeth Salander
- Little Red Riding Hood
- Scout Finch
- Catherine Earnshaw
- Connie Chatterley
- Emma Bovary
See http://www.stylist.co.uk/books/literatures-feistiest-females for the full list.
Are there any other female characters that should be added?
