11 times Lisa Simpson was the hero every woman deserves

All hail the Lizard Queen!

EVEN THOUGH SHE’S only eight years old, Lisa Simpson is a feminist icon of our time. Though Bart gets most of the attention, deep down we are all Lisa Simpson. And she is us.

1. Every time she rages against the machine

She’s never afraid to speak her mind, even if it leads to the pushing of the Independent Thought Alarm.

2. And questions the status quo

Why indeed, Lisa.

3. Even if it just gets her down

We all know that feeling.

4. When she proved she already has it all figured out

5. Like, really

Lisa, you’re never gonna get a husband by being sarcastic.

6. When she revealed her stance on PE

Same! Same, same, same.

7. And experienced the thrill of defying authority

A move that shocked and inspired fellow goodie-two-shoeses across the world.

8. When she created her own role model when her old one disappointed her

On Malibu Stacey’s eyeroll-worthy catchphrases:

Millions of girls will grow up thinking this is the right way to act. That they can never be more than vacuous ninnies whose goals are to look pretty, land a husband and spend days on the phone talking about how terrific it is to look pretty and have a rich husband.

9. When she knew all about imposter syndrome

I’ve seen that every time I’m about to achieve true happiness, some little piece of me says, “You don’t deserve this.” And another little piece says, “I agree.”

10. And changed herself to fit in with the cool kids
