Women’s Wrath and Double Standards: Ladies First Rants About Revenge Narratives

Often at this time of year the queer side of the Internet talks about celebrating ‘Wrath’ instead of ‘Pride’ so as to better acknowledge the world’s many injustices. Last time Ladies First covered why we need Pride. Today, Kori and Taylor let loose about the double standards regarding revenge narratives and who gets to revel in them. After thousands of years of oppression and being spoken over, all women restrain a huge, hellish dose of wrath.

Authors

  • Taylor is a writer who will always jump at the chance to blur genres. So obviously she can't pick just one to fangirl over. Though if she had to choose, she would narrow it down to science fiction and fantasy. Currently, she is most interested in women-centric stories and the depiction of trauma in media. She is also an aspiring YA novelist and aspiring Taylor Swift scholar.
