Have you noticed that most of my post titles are questions?
What is a 'strong' character when it comes to girls? Young girls need good role models,but unfortunately, they might be getting the wrong idea.
According to media, television, books, etc., a good female character is a tomboyish, tough girl, who does not care about their appearance, can totally beat any guy in a duel, does not spend time trying to make themselves pretty, and isn't a girly girl.
This is such a bad example for little kids. They'll think that it's wrong to be girly or like pink or dressing up or being pretty because it apparently makes you 'weak'. None of those things make a person weak. A girl who likes looking pretty is not weak. A girl who obsesses over her clothes is not weak. It all depends on the reason.
If a girl is dressing up to IMPRESS someone, that's definitely a bad example, and makes you weak. You should NEVER go out of your way to look pretty and impress someone. There's nothing wrong with wanting to be pretty, as long as it's for yourself and not anybody else.
And liking pink does not make you a poor role model or anything. That's something I don't understand. Why do girls these days think it is a 'weak' option to like pink? Why do they think that pink is such a girly thing? Pink is just a colour.
So here's my list of strong qualities in a female character:
So never underestimate a girl who is 'girlish'. Because beneath all that, there might be a strong, confident person.
