Women 

Of

Star Wars

About this collection

     This collection came about as a way to showcase some of the women in the Star Wars Universe.  As a child, I spent a lot of time watching and rewatching the original trilogy, seeing Leia save the day, and help fight in battles. Seeing female characters in future movies within this universe doing the same, was amazing.  This is especially true when one considers that the first movie came out in 1978, which made Leia rather unique in this regard. 

         Perhaps one of the greatest things about the variety of women in the Star Wars Universe is that there is no single type of power.  All the women showcase different types of power and ability, from the traditional family, focused or maternal to fully capable warriors.  Not to mention, these women span the spectrum of sides as well.  Both fully light Jedi warriors, to powerful Sith, to those who excel in the gray, or those who are just trying to make a difference in their lives and the lives of loved ones.  Not all the women in this universe are good, however not all are bad, in this, they are as normal as any in our world. It is the intent of this collection to showcase this spread of women and the various forms of power that are shown.

          My thanks to George Lucas and LucasFilm for creating these characters and giving them life.  All rights go to the Walt Disney Company who now owns LucasFilm. Thanks also go to the fans like me who see themselves in these ladies and see what we can become.
