      Personally, I am offended that out of 30 characters, they could only find 1 Lion. Wise fictional lions are very underrepresented here.

      out of 30 inspirational message that is all you took away? why bother reading it at all?

      If you count Grandmother Willow, I count 6—but exactly! I noticed that too and it kind of soured the pleasure in this idea.

      While I can think of some great fictional female characters/quotes that could have replaced some of the males, five is still better than none.

        Agree there should have been more than five. Electric Literature didn’t create this infographic, only reposted it. But maybe we should make our own with women mentors.

        I thought the same! What about Jane Eyre or Elizabeth Bennet or Celie? So many incredible females left out.
