I'm writing this journal today to ask for your help. I'm in my last week of Illustration exams (may the gods help me) and as one of my final projects i've created a fictional girl gang. But i've turned this girl gang real and gave them a facebook page. (which i will share shortly)
I've created this gang for a couple of reasons. One of the more obvious reasons was that I dig female characters that are badasses. But one major reason i've made them is because of a frustration i have. Namely, the extreme lack of diverse female characters in fiction. I can't run into a movie theater, or watch a series without being reminded that they haven't gone further into creating more then two types of female characters. Thankfully with series like Miranda, game of thrones and shows like that we've seen some change. But we're only half way there.
So if you have a need for more female characters. Check out the page and 'like' and become a Damnsel. Join the discussion, share your diverse female characters and help a lady to graduate:
