bree. 20. canada. ~♥~ loves vampire slayers, teenage private eyes and zombie hunters. i have a serious weakness for strong fictional lady characters.

So, why do you write these strong female characters?

Because you’re still asking me that question. 
- Joss Whedon [x]

Buffy the Vampire Slayer is an incredibly clever, complex and extraordinary show, contributing to the birth of female empowerment portrayed in television and constructing positive role models for young women in particular. The show was born in a still very traditional patriarchal society, and has since created characters such as Buffy and her fellow friends and allies for female audiences to idolise and adore - “these stories give people strength”. Along with the establishment of the first long-term lesbian relationship to be seen on network television, Joss Whedon and Buffy have taken an enormous step towards equality, a necessity enabling survival in the modern day world.
