Top Ten Tuesday: Fictional Women Leaders

Happy Tuesday!! This week’s Top Ten Tuesday theme is one that I think is incredibly important: leadership in fiction. While being a fun source of entertainment, literature is also immensely valuable in providing role models for readers. In particular, I think it is incredibly important for literature to provide readers with women and girls that they can look up to in a society that is still dominated by masculine leadership. Today I’ll be sharing ten notable women leaders in fiction:Β 

Who are your favorite fictional women leaders? What do you think of the characters and books I’ve mentioned? Let me know in the comments section below!

  1. I love that you added Offred! She was such a quiet, calm and cool character that it can be easy to pass her by for more “proactive” characters, but I was really impressed by her! Great post, Holly!

  2. I love how your suggestions are a combination of classics/ya/modern classics ❀ ❀ (I also would put Jane Eyre on the list, idk why) Also I've read 7/10 of these books GO ME our tastes are clearly aligned haha

  3. YES, YES, YES. I completely agree. Hermione and Katniss would both be absolutely amazing leaders. πŸ™‚ Thanks for sharing and, as always, fabulous post! ❀


  4. I definitely agree with Matilda, Katniss, and Hermione. I REALLY should read The Handmaid’s Tale really soon. 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!
