series: lizzie bennet diaries


‘Screw writing “strong” women.  Write interesting women.  Write well-rounded women.  Write complicated women.  Write a woman who kicks ass, write a woman who cowers in a corner.  Write a woman who’s desperate for a husband.  Write a woman who doesn’t need a man.  Write women who cry, women who rant, women who are shy, women who don’t take no shit, women who need validation and women who don’t care what anybody thinks.  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

Inspired by (x) (x) and (x). Original idea and first eight GIFs made by Tanzila. Last eight GIFs made by yours truly. These awesome people helped to decide which characters would go where: Erin, Rachel, Bethany, Rowen.
