We're all aware of the female stereotypes. The most popular one is us being obsessed with fashion and being popular, but how do different animated shows portray women? Today, we'll be looking at different female characters in the animation industry. To start with, we'll be talking about my favorite cartoon character ever: Gaz- Invader Zim (2001-2003, 2006-?) Gaz is the sister of Dib, and while Dib cares about Zim trying to take over the world, Gaz couldn't care less. Not because she cares too much about dresses or anything, she doesn't care about that either. Gaz only cares about two things- pizza and video games. Gaz has a burning hatred for the world, but who can blame her? She is a huge goth, even though she's only 10. Rarity-My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic (2010-present) Rarity is a white unicorn with a purple, curly mane. She has a job, making dresses. Rarity is very girly. However, she isn't shallow. She is often shown as independent, strong, and intelligent, using her wits to get out of situations. She is very generous and cares deeply for her friends, and will not hesitate to help a stranger.

I’m overjoyed. I have to tell you, I was fighting back tears a moment ago, as I was reading the SCOTUS-blog and the first line that came out saying that the Fifth Circuit opinion or decision had been reversed. It’s incredible news for the women of Texas. It’s incredible news for women throughout this country. - Wendy Davis
While women still only make up such a small percentage of political leadership, to quote Michelle Obama, ‘because of these women, girls and boys all over the world will have real-life examples that women are leaders.’ In the last two years if I have learned anything, if they have shown me anything, it is that nothing—nothing—is impossible. Emma Watson
I remember everything, of course. I never forget. But it’s the thing that’s pushing me actually to do more and more. - Yusra Mardini
We cannot measure our humanity, but we can act on it. Our humanity is that glowing center in all of us. It is what makes us speak up about an injustice, even when that injustice does not personally affect us. It is what makes us aware that we are better off if our fellow human beings are better off. - Emma Watson
I’ve had to learn that my voice has value. And if I don’t use it, what’s the point of being in the room? - Michelle Obama

People who are passionate are good at what they do. These emotions are a driving force, and I don’t think women should apologize for them any more than a man should. - Amal Clooney
