Fictional Women We Wish Were Real! (and why)


  • Deb Morgan (Dexter – novels and tv): she tells it like it is, isn’t going to censor herself for anyone, she doesn’t apologize for her NSA relationships, she’s incredibly loyal to her family
  • Veronika (Veronika Decides to Die – novel and movie): she is uninhibited, has a full passion for life and new appreciation for it, helps people around her learn things they never knew about themselves, lives without fear.
  • Eponine (Les Miserables – musical): feisty, faithful, resourceful, loyal, independent, willing to die for a cause (love).


  • Elizabeth Bennett (Pride & Prejudice – novel and film): She is not afraid to speak her mind and will go against societal expectations to ensure hers and others’ happiness happens.
