Top Ten Tuesday- Classic Characters Who Would Make Great Feminist Activists

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme created by The Broke and the Bookish blog.

This week’s topic is: Characters Who Would Make Great Leaders

I’m twisting the topic slightly to Classic Characters Who Would Make Great Feminist Activists

  1. So many favorite characters! Love seeing unknown characters like Flora as well as popular ones (Anne, Elizabeth, Jo, Jane and more) on this list. Made it fun to browse and see all the familiar faces of ladies who are much loved as literature characters. 🙂

  2. I LOVE the twist you gave this topic! I especially appreciate that you included most characters from the 18th Century. Your list is so cool and I have a lot of love for many of the women you picked.

    I was on hiatus for the entire month of November when I was supposed to write about this fantastic topic on leaders because of exams, so I missed it. But I ended up writing it anyway with my own twist and posting it on the blog weeks later. I couldn’t pass the opportunity!

    My topic is Leaders of a Bank Robbery Operation, LOL. ❤

    Here’s my belated TTT!
