Happy International Women’s Day — Something to Celebrate

Posted on March 8, 2012 by


It’s International Women’s Day, March 8, 2012. Here at Femamom we take any and all opportunities to salute the good work of others. Please check out the link below; a list compiled over at Flavowire of female literary icons. In honor of today, we’re taking a stroll through the list.  Lisbeth Salander of  The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo won top billing:


The most powerful female protagonist of the hour is also one of the strongest women of this list. A world class computer hacker with a photographic memory, she’s also the survivor of an abusive childhood, which makes her a fiercely anti social heroine with a violent streak. Characterized by many as a “feminist avenging angel”, Lisbeth’s brutality is nothing to aspire to-but she sure gets the job done.
