One of my most favorite images of an independent woman for me comes from one of my earliest experiences with intergalactic wars.
General Leia Organa
Wait.. didn’t I post about her last week? I did. However, Leia evolved as a character from being ‘only a princess’ to fulfilling the demands of a role she wasn’t trained to be in. That’s truly inspirational.
Unforgiving, resourceful, and unyielding to patriarchal demands: a perfect combination that leaves men quaking with fear for years.
Special shout out to Carrie Fisher for bringing this character to life!
