Joss Whedon on Why He Writes Strong Women Characters

Via Upworthy:

Joss Whedon, director of “The Avengers” and [creator of Buffy the Vampire Slayer], has a history of writing strong women characters. Back in 2006, the organization Equality Now honored him for being a staunch ally for women. In his thank-you speech, he decided to talk about the tedious and vapid question journalists never stop asking him. “

My favorite quote:

“…the misogyny that is in every culture is not a true part of the human condition –it’s life out of balance, and that imbalance is sucking something out of the soul of every man and woman who is confronted with it.”
