Five Forgotten (Brilliant) Lady Leads in Fiction

Something to supplement your Furiosa fix.

I thought today might be a great opportunity to offer up some other stories about women: triumphant and struggling, witty and monstrous, mundane and adventurous.

Power Grid

Being a teenager can really suck. You're at the cusp of having to make major life decisions about college and possibly moving away from home. There's the stress of school and various personal and social milestones. Hormones are zinging around everywhere.

The Boob Tube

Oh, 'tis a joyous day for we Generation Xers who remember the days when The Real World was real and MTV played music videos ... that were later bashed on its animated chestnut, Beavis and Butthead.

You might notice that there were some obvious efforts to make this seem ready for the zeitgeist of MTV's new audience of Millennials (hi there, Twilight references -- we totally noticed you there), but you know what? I'll allow it. I find this acceptable. Welcome back, Beavis and Butthead. Now, how about a Daria comeback? (via The Hollywood Reporter)
