Pop culture heroines are strong not just because they fight villains, but because they deal with the same issues we face in real life – addictions, fears, traumas, and other struggles. And with the help of these characters, fans can find inspirations to overcome their own problems and be brave. In this book, Andrea Towers outlines some of the primary traits heroic women can rely upon, like resilience, self-acceptance, and confidence. Also included are insights from psychologists and personal anecdotes from courageous real-life women involved in facets of pop culture.

This book totally surprised me in a pleasant way. Intelligently written it gives a deep and insightful look into the lives and background of many familiar female characters. But not only that, it makes their struggles and successes relatable to all. It goes a long way to show that you can be strong and yet, still struggling. The book talks about so many issues we face during our lifetimes and how they are dealt with by fictional female characters.
