  every single one of them has some kind of evil witch or wicked stepmother in it. and lemme tellya, these bitches are loathsome True, but (like the best femmes fatales) they are NOT weak. They are living, breathing bitches that make men crawl for their sadistic whims. In other words, they are the antithesis of the swooning females who so often populated the Victorian-era fiction.

My female students either loath Brigid for being an evil termagint, or they love her for being strong. They feel the same toward Lady Brett Ashley....
