Fantasy and young adult literature can get a bad rap sometimes, but Mia’s list of some of her favorite heroines is a perfect breakdown of why strong female characters like Katniss or Divergent‘s Tris are so important.

The qualities they embody are always relevant, whether you’re a young adult or just a plain old grownup.
