Heroine too dumb to live?
#3
Yes, I love the heroines who were intelligent enough to figure out how to solve their problems "within the dictates of their society". Unfortunately, some of the "heroines" were characterized as frail and were always being rescued - "the damsel in distress". Or they would faint at every little thing. Just as an example, I read "The Woman in White" by Wilkie Collins. The chosen heroine, Laura Fairlie, is fragile and naive, though at times she shows some intelligence. This may be because of her stronger sister, Marian Holcomb, who in my mind, should have been the heroine.
