Miss Celia Foote
The Help is HUGE right now. Many aspects of the book warrant a warm feminist discussion, but I choose Miss Celia Foote. Her strength, committment to individuality, and unwillingness to forget where she came from, inspire me to do the same. Each day, and each moment, is an opportunity to choose who we are, and Miss Celia emulates that theory in her actions.
So, if you have not read The Help, pick it up at your local bookshop or Target, and fall into the beauty of individual characters and their actions.
