Star Wars: Space is for white women

Last year, I had the audicity of making a post on Tumblr saying that maybe, after five nearly identical white female leads across the span of four decades, we don’t need any more white women in the Star Wars franchise.

Though, of course, most people actually agreed, because –as intelligent consumers of media– most of us have come to realize that the white female lead is no longer revolutionary (read: herehereherehere), most doesn’t mean all.

…we only ever got 3, fam, in the entire eight movies

There are four in the entire franchise. Yes, it does need more.

I’m sure there were more obnoxious comments like these, but I blocked most of the commentators due to pure annoyance. Yet, because I’m a petty bitch, I decided to make this list. These are… all the women in the Star Wars movies!
