By increasing the number of female heroes, we can begin to alter the negative way in which women are perceived globally.
Tampa, FL (PRWEB) June 05, 2014
We often hear tales of how the lives of women have drastically improved, but with events such as Nigerian kidnappings, workplace discrimination and abuse, has anything really changed?
Author, JB Hamilton Queen believes there needs to be more strong female roles in popular culture. She makes a point to position young and independent women as the protagonists in all her novels.
“I believe all young women must have a positive female role model they can lean on, Queen said. “By increasing the number of female heroes we can begin to alter the negative way in which women are perceived globally.”
Her newest book, “Dagger in the Cup” is a fictional thriller about a teenage heroine living in the mountains of Virginia who saves her family from an abusive stepfather. The book provides a suspenseful and exciting plot while addressing hot button issues such as women’s reproductive rights, race and stereotypes.
