Kick-Ass Links on Writing Kick-Ass Heroines

While writing the first Danger Gal Friday post, I came across two blogs that do a great job at covering similar kinds of content:

  • Heroine Content describes itself as “. . . a feminist and anti-racist blog about women kicking ass. More specifically, we write about women kicking ass in action films, with a side order of television and video game commentary as things catch our eye.” HC liked Mrs. Smith. She’s my hero.
  • Writer Bernita Harris’ blog post Paper Dolls, specifically on Elizabeth Moon’s Paksenarrion and the demise of Harlequin’s Bombshell line, and generally on writing kick-ass heroines. Not to mention on the most appropriate time for the kick-ass heroine to engage in basket preoccupation.
