Women of Star Wars – Content Roundup

Whether they’re bringing a spark of hope to the galaxy, returning balance to the Force, or encouraging us to save what we love — not fight what we hate — the Women of Star Wars inspire and challenge us. Here’s a roundup of all of The Story Geeks’ recent content focusing on the Women of Star Wars and their far-reaching impact.

The Women of Star Wars Blog Series

In our recent Women of Star Wars blog series, The Story Geeks’ blogger Ashley Pauls  took a deep dive into the character journeys of six female main characters in the franchise:

Rose Tico – Saving what we love

Out of all the characters I’ve covered so far in the Women of Star Wars blog series, Rose feels like the most relatable to the average fan’s experience. She isn’t in a position of power like Leia or Padmé. She doesn’t have impressive Force powers like Rey. She isn’t as…[Read More]
