So, do you remember how last year I was all agog about this awesome multi-fandom vid celebrating females from all forms of movies and television?

And then omoo talked about being angry at the common portrayal of women in fiction and we tried to name positive role models [but] had a really hard time, and were a bit depressed by that. And I took up the challenge and I created a Fabulous Fictional Females Love Meme to do just that?

Well, I think it's time we did something like that again.

In fact, I'd like to dedicate the entire MONTH of February to it. That'll give us plenty of time to ponder and post.

This idea actually came to me a while back (the LAST time we were house-bound by winter storms) and I've been pulling images and video clips. My plan is to post about one extraordinary fictional female every day.

Will you join me?

(Drumroll please)

I hearby declare next month as "Fabulous Fictional Females Fandom Fiesta February" (F5 for short)

Spread the word!

Whatever you want!

~ Find awesome fanfic, fanvids, clips, quotes, pictures, etc that demonstrate and celebrate the awesomeness of fictional females you love.

~ Post them in your journal and rave like the proud fangirl you are!

~ Tell other people, try to recruit them to do the same thing.

~ Repeat.

Oh, fun!

Lately, I've been coming across (or finally noticing) all these references to real women who did extraordinary things for their time. This is partly probably due to my ignorance of history or that my view of the past is the stereotypical. One in which all 1950s women were stay at home moms, all women in the 1800s could be lumped into a class structure. I’m intrigued when I come across references of women who went against the grain of their time.

Yeah, women are so often glossed over or generalized in the overview of history but when you study the specific lives of individual women? It is unbelievable the impact and/or power some of them held.
