‘Stop and Fangirl’ Episode 50: The Female Anti-Hero

Here at Fangirlish we continue to support your right to fangirl over any fandom you desire – whether that is a book, a TV show, a movie, or even sports. That’s why we have  Stop and Fangirl!  So you can feel  happy – and confident, loving whatever it is you love.

This week we talk all about the female anti-hero and why the ways we measure her is often far different than the way we measure male anti-heroes. We break down why this is such a thing, how an anti-hero is often looked down upon for being a woman, but we also celebrate how far we’ve come and the movies and shows that are getting right.

Please note at the beginning of the episode, we do mention gun control and the shooting in Parkland, FL. If this is triggering, it’s okay if you want to skip out. We understand.

Lyra enjoys loud mouthed, damaged characters, with a penchant for rescuing people and drinking their sorrows away. When she isn’t splurging on Netflix shows she’s not so quietly ranting about Teen Wolf, The Walking Dead, and Supernatural!
