Summary "What does it mean to be strong? Pop culture heroines are strong not just because they fight villiains, but because they deal with the same issues we face in real life--addictions, fears, traumas, and other struggles. And with the help of these characters, fans can find inspiration to overcomr their own problems and be brave. In this book, Andrea Towers outlines some of the primary traits heroic women can rely upon, like resilience, self-acceptance, and confidence. Also included are insights from psychologists and personal anecdotes from courageous real-life women involved in all facets of pop culture."--Back cover.
