|Detective Olivia Benson.|
In my own view, the closest synonym of tough is Olivia Benson.
How can she be a role model for teenagers? well, it´s kind of easy if you think about it. She is intelligent, hard, gorgeous, independent and she can kick asses.
Through the years, society has separated roles based on gender. It basically mean that bouys should work harder because they are though and manly, and girls should do everything related to the house, kids, cooking.
Even with colors, people keep saying that blue is for boys and pink is for girls, and that is so stupid. Colors don´t have gender, and it shouldn´t mean anything if a girl play with cars or something.
In some cultures women are not "allow" of talking, or choose about something. They start living under the sight of her fathers and after under her husbands´.
India is one of the countries that are still thinking that in some cases of rape the women are the ones to blame, even if they may don´t have any reason to say that, in every cases is women´s fault.
A recent case is Hungary where the police just have realese a video in which they are trying to warn about rape and violence against women and teenagers, but I think they just did it so wrong. I will leave the link of the video from CNN and you may just comment about it.
In conclusion, Olivia Benson is an example of someone that don´t take crap from no one, and she defend herself and others keeping her moral safe. I think that´s admirable... for a character, that we must keep watching, and follow.
I hope you like it, and if you did tell everybody to read me, and if you didn´t just leave your thoughts.
