The 5 Most Feminist Things About Buffy the Vampire Slayer

“…the most striking thing about the show was the feminist themes woven throughout it.”

A lot of what gets rolled out these days as far as supernatural romance goes, isn’t exactly female-empowering; Twilight has taught an entire generation of young women that a stalker-y, co-dependent relationship is the best thing to have, ever. But those of us from the Buffy generation, well, we see things differently.

Vampires are there to be slain, as Buffy would do it, and it’s a good thing she was there to, because all that time, she was teaching us ladies to feel and think a little bit differently about the world.
