This week’s theme is ‘Independent Ladies’ and it basically is about leading ladies who aren’t always distracted by a love interest and get stuff done.
(1) Jude from the Cruel Prince
Nothing could ever distract Jude from her scheming- not even Cardan!
(2) Rin from the Poppy War
Rin would do anything to protect the people she cared about but she never relied on other people to do things for her.
(3) Essun from The Fifth Season
Essun did all that she could to be create a better world for those she loved and no annoying love interest got in the way of that.
(4) Baru from The Traitor Baru Cormorant
The thing about Baru is that she would make it look like she was getting distracted from her goals when really it was a part of her intricate plan all along and she always had something up her sleeve.
(5) Helene from An Ember in the Ashes
I think Helene was awesome. She was the only woman in an occupation that was supposed to just be for men and she proved to them that she was just as worthy- or even more so- as everyone else.
What are you top five independent ladies? Let me know in the comments!
