damn. and that’s middle school too.

Why we ever use anything else I do not know.
I live in a city with some of the most poverty-stricken inner city schools in the country. I’ve of the local grammar school has about a 90% attendance rate. They give grocery store giftcards to children with good attendance, and each month the classroom with the highest rates gets a pizza party for lunch.
Who’da thunk that helping kids have basic needs met outside the classroom could help?
Mr. Rux, you are an amazing man.
THEY ARE ALL OKAY, and all those things could exist in THE SAME WOMAN. Women shouldn’t be valued because we are strong, or kick-ass, but because we are people. So don’t focus on writing characters who are strong. Write characters who are people. —madlori
Modeled on this post. This quote needed a gifset that featured a more diverse group women. Because my takeaway from Lori’s marvelous answer (seriously, go read all of it) is that representation matters and that great female characters do not—and should not—fit into the same cookie cutter mold. Because actual women are not one size fits all. And the irony of having that message cross my dash repeatedly with exclusively young, white, straight, cis women who match a prescriptive definition of beauty was getting to me.
Have you heard of Ban Bossy? It’s the new initiative from Lean In and the Girl Scouts that’s trying to ban “bossy” and similar words that are used to bring down girls that are ambitious, take risks, and speak up. By changing the way we treat girls who lead, hopefully our generation will someday see more women in leadership roles.
