Empowering Women in Media Tag

Hey guys how’s it going? Today I was tagged by my dear friend Lita to do this tag with anime girls

I remember when I was younger I used to google Anime Girls all the time to get new anime recommendations because of the art this is so amazing.

however, I am going to use this to represent a ton of my media gals that may need some love and affection also from a variety of age groups. Onto the Tag!

Here are the rules:

  • Choose a female (real or fictional) for every prompt.
  • Tag at least one female blogger. 
  • Pingback to Annie’s Powerful females’ tag.
  • Enjoy

Name a female known for her intelligence

Shurei from The Story of Saiunkoku Series Manga

This series is highly underrated but the main premise of the story is that Shurei’s main dream is to become a civil servant but the law prevented that from happening so she became the emperor’s consort instead to teach the emperor about their country’s law and traditions etc. There is a lot more to it of course, but overall Shurei is definitely the first female character that came to mind (check out this series if you haven’t already!!!)

Name a woman known for her physical strength

Erza from The Fairy Tail Anime Series

Now my favorite female character in the Fairy Tail anime franchise is Lucy. However, I have to admit that Erza is the only character I have seen and read (at least currently) that is physically strong enough to lift heavy metal weapons, huge buildings, etc. In that aspect, I truly respect her and all of her fans.

Name a female who powered through difficult times

Nat from The Chance to Fly by Ali Stroker & Stacy Davidowitz

This is a middle grade novel that has a girl go through some difficult times when it comes to their disability. She has difficulty with her parents being helicopters, she has difficulty with her theater director not taking her seriously when it comes to the Wicked musical when it comes to the choreography, and of course she has the regular difficulties with moving to a new place and making new friends. Although this character goes through all of this though, she ends up learning a ton of lessons about herself and how she can overcome these obstacles as well as fall in love. Because of these points I definitely recommend this book for all middle grade classrooms especially ones who need a character like Nat.

Name a woman who you want to be friends/roommates with

Taylor from Queens of Geek by Jen Wilde

Now I have a ton of female characters that I could put for this particular question. But, for me personally I have to put Taylor from Queens of Geek because although there could be moments that we could clash living arrangements etc. but I would love to talk to Taylor and ask her some questions about how she was able to explain to her best friends about how to handle her Asperger’s and how she deals with her anxiety as well. I also would love to go to a convention with her as well. I am sure we would be having a ton of fun throughout it because she’s an ultimate fangirl just like me.

Name a woman who you think is a good role model

Frankie from Always Only You by Chloe Liese

This adult romance series is one that has fantastic men as well as fantastic women but Frankie is one to me that is a fantastic role model. She has overcome so much adversity such as being diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder at thirteen years old but also at seventeen years old diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis. She also is an amazing person who understands her limitations but also is able to figure things out such as her blooming relationship with Ren. To me, she is a fantastic role model because she is not all about her disorders, she is her own woman who does whatever she can to be happy in her own life. Check out all the books in this book series if you haven’t already.

Name a woman who deserves the spotlight

Gwenpool from the Gwenpool Comic Series

This is one of my favorite variant covers from Gwenpool

I know what you’re thinking, Sushi, why should she deserve the spotlight? She’s considered an anti-hero etc. Because you guys she is the ultimate Marvel fangirl number 1, number 2, her lines are hilarious and witty, and number 3, she is a badass at her weapons and strategy. If you have not read the Gwenpool comics, I would highly recommend (however they are 16+ so please keep that in mind.

Time to name some ladies to shine us with some women empowerment for our media gals!
