International Woman's Day is a special day because it doesn't just celebrate women, but it is a humanitarian holiday that focuses and celebrates the woman. Being one myself and a feminist, it's special to me and I consider myself as one of the lucky ones because all my life, I always had the support of both men and women in my life and I have my freedom. Sadly, in some parts of the world, being a female means you doomed to live a hard life, be denied your basic rights, and having no say even on your own life choices. This has to change.

With that said, I wanted my take on Jekyll and Hyde to be progressive in terms of how women are written which is why I have these women here. You've seen them all already though you got to know better than others so far, but trust me, you will get to know them. I know the story takes place in the Victorian age (sort of), but that doesn't mean I should make my female characters nothing more than scenery. I am very proud of how I wrote my women characters and how distinct they all are.

Just because they weren't considered "visible" doesn't mean they weren't there: Florence Nightingale, Mary Seacole, "Agent Moses", Lily Parr, Mary Shelley... and those are just some of the ones we *know* about. There are (and were!) so many anonymous women out there who are strong and important to society in a variety of ways.

A friend told me the other day that she and her team went to a congress, only to be asked where the engineers were... They were the engineers. They just happened to be women (-_-')

So thank you for this post, MK. A lot of people roll their eyes when they see the word "feminist", but in the end, it's all about equality and fair chances, regardless of gender.

Mary Shelley is one of my idols and made me fall in love with intelligent sympathetic monsters. I even intend to do a Frankenstein adaptation one day.

Looking forward to it!
And yeah, she's one of my idols too, for similar reasons. (I still tend to get a little miffed whenever someone describes the creature as a shambling idiot. He could quote "Paradise Lost", for crying out loud!) :)

I definitely intend to make him smart, but like Jekyll and Hyde, not another Frankenstein monster.

Nowhere. I'd be absolutely nowhere.
