Fiction’s Fearless Females – Princess Leia

I loved this post about  Fiction’s Fearless Females – Princess Leia.

365 Star Wars

Okay so I’ve been a fan of Star Wars for four decades, ever since I discovered my brother playing the movie on his Beta Max video player. And I was like, what is this movie? This is like the best thing I have ever seen. I still feel a joy when I hear the music.

But you know for a long time, Star Wars was really a boys own adventure. As a die hard Science Fiction fan, I’ve never let this get in the way of me enjoying the adventure but……I understand how hard it is, to rock up to an event, look around and realise you’re the only woman there.

So imagine my delight when I found 365 Star Wars, a site dedicated to celebrating the female influence on the Star Wars Universe. I was so excited I wanted to share it with you too….
