How to be a Heroine

On the realisation that she'd being trying to be Cathy from Wuthering Heights when really she should have been the eponymous Jane Eyre, Samantha Ellis decided to re-examine all the heroines she (and we) grew up with. How far does each stand up to scrutiny? Is it possible that Gone With the Wind's real heroine isn't Scarlett O'Hara? A funny, touching, inspiring exploration of the role of heroines – and how they change over time, for better or worse, just as we do.
