Lisa Simpson is what can only be described as one of the greatest feminist characters in cartoon history. Every week my family would watch The Simpsons on Sunday as a ritual, so I can say that without a doubt that I wonder if I would be the person I am today without Lisa Simpson’s bookish, witty, misfit attitude. She always felt like an outsider but she never let that stop her from pursuing her interests which mostly consisted of reading books by female authors like Jane Austen and Sylvia Plath. Lisa’s rejection of the male patriarchy and acceptance of all, including the tiniest of animals when she became a vegetarian at eight years old, shaped and influenced my worldview growing up. It made me more empathetic toward others and wonder if it was OK to play with Barbie dolls.
