Disclaimer: This post is related to some classwork i have to work on and post in the making of this blog. Therefore it may or may not be related to the content the blog is originally meant to be about.  Either way, hope you like it!

       Power, strength, voice, compassion, women are made of so many great qualities that have changed our world day by day, year by year and generation by generation. Since we’ve stomped our feet in the ground and learned how to battle a world full of patriarchal perspectives and underestimations of a women’s potential to rise and fight, the roll of a women has become something to look forward to, an inspiration and a symbol of strength. Inserting this image and qualities in literature has made this vision grow and has made the world clearly see that we are capable of more than we even think.

As part of our topic investigation work in class i have attached a few articles and resources that inform us more about how women have changed literature, how they’re participation in creating it has also re-surfaced questions in our society and how they’ve slowly in a way become part of all of it around the world.
