Making a feminist character can seem hard, sometimes it is, sometimes it isn't. They can be both male or female (I plan on writing a feminist novel from the POV of a male feminist), and can be any age. Making one should also be fun, I mean they'll be in a book or TV show. They need a personality and need to avoid anti-feminist tropes. So here I'll showcase various childrens and YA feminist characters from TV and books.
There she (today our feminist is a girl) is, Trixie!
Trixie is your normal pre-K little girl (I'm going to be honest, I've only read Knuffle Bunny one and two, I'll make sure to read the third soon). She has two loving parents, friends (her best friends being her stuffed rabbit Knuffle Bunny and Sonja from school), and does normal stuff kids her age do, like taking her Knuffle Bunny to school.
I'm sure Mo Willems had fun making Trixie, I mean she's such a fun character to read (that's my deep inner picture book junkie for you). I like seeing her age from a little(er) girl to a pre-K-er. She's drawn very nicely and the background photos are awesome.
Trixie is a strong female character, determined to save her Knuffle Bunny and protect her bunny from harm (I know this isn't Xena strong female character, but five year olds read this and this is girl power right here). She loves her Knuffle bunny very much. She and Sonja are also great friends. The books also have great imagination in them along with awesome art. They're also funny and for all ages.
And just to let you know, there's a real Knuffle bunny.
Aw, Knuffle Bunny in reality is so cute and glow in the dark green! :D
I will be posting another Making of a Feminist Character sometime soon, I just need to find one. Possible future characters:
Elephant and/or Piggie from the Elephant and Piggie books by Mo Willems
Alicia from Things Not Seen
Isabella from Phineas and Ferb
