Quiz: which feminist literary heroine are you?

children's book feminist literature quiz.jpg

From Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women to Roald Dahl’s Matilda, we’ve been treated to a plethora of literary heroines over the years.

We rallied against the lions of injustice with Jo March, and determined that we absolutely would never marry for money with Elizabeth Bennett. We saved Harry Potter’s butt (a lot) with the smart-as-a-whip Hermione Granger, and defeated the Trunchbull with Matilda Wormwood.  We started a revolution with Katniss Everdeen, drove vampires out of town with Esme Weatherwax, ventured through the wardrobe with Lucy Pevensey, and plenty more besides.

Each has inspired us in a different way, each has challenged us to do our very best, and each has burst forth from the page over the years to become as real to us as any living person.

But which of these incredible fictional females are we most like? It’s time to find out the answer to this age-old question once and for all, with our highly scientific quiz…

You’re welcome.
