I have always admired strong females and from experience, understand the many pressures all women have to undergo. A few of my protagonists are female and, I think, to coin an American phrase, ‘kick ass’. Even though I’m English, I love the expression.
So, then, here are seven stories about women, who I think are tough in varying ways; from dealing with the tormenting loss of a child, to creating a world so to deal with those tangled feelings, to women who fight against insanity, to those who will never give up regardless of their situations. Whether it is because of how they perceive their bodies or are trapped in impossible situations. Follow their battles and, you never know, you might come out the other end much stronger.
No, I am not a feminist, but do think that women have to constantly prove themselves worthy and deserve at least as much respect as the opposite sex.
Keep on kicking ass!
