Growing up, Avatar: The Last Airbender was my favorite thing to watch. Even now, it’s one of the greatest shows I have ever laid eyes on. But it was only recently that I realized how many awesome female characters are in this story and how much we’ve taken it for granted.
I’m talking Katara and Toph, Azula, Mai, and Ty Lee. Or if we’re thinking about The Legend of Korra; Korra, Asami, Lin Beifong, Opal, Kuvira, Suyin, and the list for both shows only goes on and on.
Often times, it’s such a big deal when female characters get to shine or have their own stories told but these two shows never shrug from the responsibility of giving girls plenty of empowering ladies, good or bad, to cheer for.
I just wanted to point that out.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a lovely day.
