Finding Inspiration in Anime
Many argue that some anime are very sexist and stereotypical towards women. Anime tries to sometimes make girls strong and muscular or sometimes make them almost identical to a male character. Maybe even make them thin asf or make the male protagonist save the women. As a feminist I don’t think that’s way to promote feminism.
I chose these three female characters on how powerful and special they are in their own ways.
Now, I know some people depict her as someone weak and useless. I don’t think so.
Sure, she’s not strong, but her will to never give up is what makes her so inspiring and powerful. She shows that quiet people can be strong and can save the day once in a while.
Especially with Naruto, she is willing to go all the way to protect who she cares about.
Hinata Hyuga breaks all stereotypes, and proves that a strong woman doesn’t have to be masculine or tough.
She’s the true figure of feminism. This was probably the first anime I watched where a girl was a little on the chubby side. I loved her immediately. She flaunts off her curves and I have mad respect for people who aren’t insecure about their bodies.
Like Hinata, Sonico isn’t masculine, and you can even say she’s girly, but she doesn’t let that stop her from achieving her goals.
I’ve never seen a person so determined like Honoka. Especially when there’s a lack of support from those around her. She’s very determined to make her dream come true: becoming an idol.
I’ve learned from Honoka that no matter how impossible your dreams are, never give up and to never let go of your goals.
Something else is that Honoka isn’t flashy, she’s a normal high school girl.
