Title: Suffrage
Shut Your Mouth by Garbage
Summary: This video is for the TV movie Iron Jawed Angels. The movie shows American women's struggle to get the right to vote - pretty tough. They hounded senators, petitioned the president, held rallies, held a parade that started a riot, picketed a war-time president, got arrested for their tactics & finally (after their prison hunger strike hit the press) won women the right to vote! It's hard to believe, but this isn't that old of a part of our history - women got the right to vote in the US in 1920. That means that there are still women alive today who, in their lifetime, were not allowed to vote. So watch this video, see the movie, and appreciate what those women sacrificed so that you could cast your ballot on election day. Oh yeah, and one more thing, GO OUT THERE & VOTE!!!

While making my current picspam for the comm I realised I had another already finished and perfect one for it!

Oh, Sailor Moon! I still remember when I first met you and I've loved you since. For always, it looks like. I was first introduced to the wonderfulness of this anime, when I was about 7/8 and let me tell you, to me, it was amazing. And? It hasn't stopped being amazing for me. This was my first fandom before I even knew what fandom was! I actually caught my first episode by mistake. It was sandwiched between Ronin Warriors and Dragonball back in the day on UPN. My brother watched them and then one morning I sat down and by the first 10 seconds of the opening, I was mesmerised. Hooked. This show spoke to my seven year old self. *fist pump*

I loved the characters so much. I wanted to be these girls and have friends like these girls, becuase even though they were kickass soliders and princesses, they were also the most amazing bunch of friends ever. They weren't pefect -- hell, Usagi? Perfect? hahahaha! -- but they were wonderful. All of them had flaws, and even more strength than they knew at the time, and together they saved the world and each other from the ages of 14 to forever! (I'm serious, they like live to be 1000 years old or something by the end. They have great genetics.)

TITLE: Sisters
SUMMARY: Set in pre-Sherman Atlanta. A quiet afternoon at the Peachtree Street house.

Melanie pulled the needle back towards her.

Kaze Hikaru is a historical shoujo manga set during the time of the Meiji Revolution in the 1860s. Tominaga Sei is the story’s crossdressing heroine. She shaves the top of her head in a boy's hairstyle, takes on the name "Kamiya Seizaburo," and joins the Shinsengumi (a shogunate police force) in order to avenge her family’s death at the hands of anti-shogunate rebels. After her family’s murderer is killed, she stays with the Shinsengumi because she has learned a samurai’s love for comrades and ideals, and a young woman’s love for one particular comrade, Okita Souji.

'A flower-like demon! Kamiya Seizaburo, a.k.a. Tominaga Sei, 16 years old. This flower who blossomed at the Ikedaya Affair...was too young to even realize she was a flower.' )

I haven't had a chance to contribute as much as I would have liked to this round of [community profile] halfamoon, though I hope to get more in before the end. But in the meantime: Last June I hosted a HB(adass)IC poll at my journal. On the one hand, I have issues with these contests; the competitive, "there can only be one" nature of them when the only thing the characters have in common is their gender can be problematic. On the other hand, interactive celebration of Our Heroines! So we did the poll, and every time a character got voted out I drafted my friends recruited volunteers to write appreciation post/picspams for them. The result was 25 character love posts, and hopefully much fun had by all.

Nomination post, with 390 comments worth of female-character squee.

This is one of my very favourite series at the moment and the female characters are absolutely fantastic. In them, you see that strength doesn't just come in physical form. You also see that you're allowed to like girly things and kick some serious butt when needed.

This picspam only takes images from the anime, which has around 17 episodes so far. If you're a follower of the manga, you know there's lots of great stuff for the ladies to come.

Warning: Image heavy, spoilers for the series.
