    Women in Fiction: Characters vs. Caricatures

    in Writing

    Please post comments about this episode on our Blog Talk Radio Page or on Facebook. Or please tweet us @writepackradio. This episode is on a topic we will return to, but we would like your feedback and opinions on this topic as a reader and a writer.

    Are women portrayed reasonably in fiction or is it a reflection of our current society? Does fiction display the social pressures placed on women or does it create caricatures? Whose fantasies are women characters written for? Are women in fiction written to be the fantasy of men or of women? What things do writers do that transfer the woman into caricatures?

    Do women need to be rescued in fiction, even if she is an action heroin? How is it handled in crime stories? Fantasy? Other books? Games?

    Why do women in fantasy have to be armored inappropriately in chainmail bikinis? Are women in fiction a female trope first?

    How are women portrayed on book covers and movie posters? Why do they have to be portrayed as “ideal” woman? Why are women “underdressed” in comic books? Is making a strong female character only putting a man in a skirt? How do you show the real woman? Does a strong woman have to kick butt in the story or are there other ways to show the character’s strength? What are the kinds of strength that can be shown other than kicking butt?

    Is it necessary for a strong woman characters to fall in love with the strong male characters?

    Are bad female characters—the woman caricatures a result of malice writing or a result of lazy writing?

    Your True Colours Image Radio

    in Lifestyle

    Carolyn Bendall, Fashion Critic and blogger (www.carolynbendall.com), discusses subjects, trends, or products within the beauty and fashion industry, focusing on Your True Colours, and how it applies to you, the individual.

    Allison Fagundes is the founder of BusteeLady, which makes fashionable and supportive clothing for busty women.  Fashion is Allison’s calling. Attending FIDM and LMU helped land her careers in apparel manufacturing and costume design.  As she developed the brand concept, a particularly humiliating, but now funny moment, catapulted Bustees into reality.  Bustees promotes health and wellness and supports 2 causes, one of which Allison directly encountered, breast and thyroid cancer.

    Bustees designs bikinis with fit, fashion, as well as performance in mind. We want our clients to be beachside, or poolside, and only be focused on enjoying themselves as well as reveling in the fact they look fabulous!  If a customer wearing our product goes to the beach and decides she wants to be a part of a pick-up game of volleyball, she will be left without a doubt knowing her curves are secure, properly supported, and she won’t have to worry about anything “popping out to say hello” no matter how active her day becomes.  Bustees bikinis mimic the support of a brassiere, while maintaining better dimensional stability through the layering of performance textiles. In fusing these two ideas, you end up with an impressive product that will last.

    WTF - w/Kevin A. Phillips - Fun-in-the-Sun

    in Lifestyle

    THIS WEEK:  Fun in the Sun:

    Playing it “Safe” after a TBI Watermelon, BBQ, hotdogs, and ice-cream…swimming pools, bikinis, flip flops and towels….gardening, picnics, flowers and naps under shade trees….beaches, picnics, road trips, and vacations. What comes to mind when you see or hear these words? SUMMER!

    For many of us, we enjoy being outdoors, soaking up the sun and fresh air, working up a sweat gardening or playing in the yard, listening to the sweet tunes of the birds and crickets, and watching butterflies flutter and the bees buzzing by. We also see an increase of outdoor physical activities such as cycling, riding motorcycles, skateboarding, swimming, waterskiing, rock climbing, baseball, and jumping on the trampoline. What do these sports have in common? The need to take precautions to prevent injury, especially brain injuries.

    But what about after a TBI….could we still enjoy these activities? How did you adapt to these activities you once loved to do? What are alternative safe activities that we can participate in, enjoy and still feel like we are having fun in the sun?

    Join Kevin tonight as he shares his insights about the importance of returning to leisure after a TBI, acquiring new interests and skills, and taking the necessary precautions to have a safe and enjoyable summer season. Tune in tonight at 7:00 PM PDT to learn more and call in to share your own perspective of Fun in the Sun and what works for you!
