Portrayal of Women in Fiction
As readers of Unleaded know, I’d like to see women portrayed better in fiction. There are a lot of books available with women characters, but as Davonne Burns @brohne noted:
@LindaAdamsVA thanks ^^ I think my prob is, I don’t read anything with fem protags, tend to find them rather annoying.
Frankly, I agree. I’m still cringing from a thriller I read when the female protagonist was being pursued by armed bad guys in a museum. Male sidekick suggests hiding in the women’s restroom. With bad guy looking for them, what inspiring thing does she do? She screeches non-stop at him for being in the bathroom. That book was was written by a woman. Read the rest on Unleaded – Fuel for Writers.
