According to chemistry, alcohol IS a solution.
This is a really great question. I just read an interesting article about it, actually, here: http://www.newstatesman.com/culture/2013/08/i-hate-strong-female-characters
I also really love this post by Phoebe North about celebrating the complicated girl: http://www.yahighway.com/2012/03/celebrating-complicated-girl.html
I think we have fairly narrow definitions of “strength” that should be challenged and expanded (Tris sometimes challenges them, but often doesn’t, because it just wasn’t something I was concerned about while developing her, though it is now). I also think that it’s important to have complex, flawed female characters who don’t fit into those definitions of strength at all. I don’t think a character has to be “strong” (whatever that means) to be likable, or that a character has to be likable to be worth reading about (my friend Stephanie Kuehn discusses this in a wonderful way here), and we need all sorts in YA. In my opinion, the big setback for feminism wouldn’t be writing a particular kind of character; it would be deciding that all female characters need to fit a narrow (often flat) definition in order to be worthy of our attention, and only representing those women.

When I was first introduced to his music my whole perception on music changed.” - Hunter Hayes introduces Ronnie Milsap at the Country Music Hall of Fame Induction
