5 Strong Female Protagonists | Book Club Tuesday

Hey Guys,

Today is a great day for females, as it is International Women’s Day. Let’s hear it for women everywhere, from all corners of the Earth, this day is ours! Go on, treat yourself!

To celebrate, I thought I would share with you 5 female protagonists from books, that are strong and manage to empower women. They show us that we can do absolutely anything, even if it seems impossible to begin with. Men are not the only people who can make a difference, and here are the females that prove that:

Hazel Grace Lancaster (The Fault In Our Stars)

This girl here has Thyroid Cancer, and although she can talk about it in a defeatist way, she still manages to come back and fight, not just for herself but for others. She gives up her time for Augustus and helps Isaac in his time of need. How awesome is that?

Tris Prior (Divergent Trilogy)

Tris is Divergent, meaning she falls under every Faction possible, making people think she is somewhat dangerous or not like them. Although at first this may begin as a hindrance, Tris soon finds a way to use it to her advantage, and overcome certain social conventions.

Sephy (Noughts and Crosses)

You all know the story of the Civil Rights Movement right? Well Noughts and Crosses shows it the other way round. Sephy is a Cross, a girl of the ‘superior’ race, who falls for her best friend, Callum, a Nought, a boy of the ‘inferior’ race. This Romeo and Juliet styled love story, shows that colour has nothing to do with who a person is, and Sephy is right! You go girl! You fight those stereotypes.

Anna (Crush)

Anna is a 14 year old girl who gets involved with a guy called Will, who at first seems to truly care, but looks can be deceiving. He soon becomes abusive, and Anna is too caught up in the relationship that she can’t see it for herself. This book shows us another side to love, and that it may be difficult, but we can get out of these toxic relationships, and come out the other side stronger and much wiser.

Mia (If I Stay)

Mia is a young girl of musical talent, who along with her parents and brother, get caught in an accident which leaves her needing to make a huge decision, to fight or let go.

    Really nice post. My favorite is from my first British lit book – Bridget Jones (from Bridget Jones’s Diary). Loved her! I really connected with her when I first read the books in my 20s. Haven’t read it in ages though and still haven’t read the newest book. Might do that soon now

    I love the girls on your list, Tris a personal fav of mine as well! She’s tough and doesn’t apologize for that, part of the reason I love her.

    Another fav of mine is Juliette Farrars from the Shatter Me Series, she grows throughout the series showing us how to pick ourselves up when we’re defeated and how to overcome obstacles. I love that!
