13 Facts That Prove Our Childhood Favorite 'Sailor Moon' Has Feminist Messages

-

As the Western media still struggles to create women heroes today, we were lucky enough to have an anime of a women heroes club in the 90s. Revolutionary anime Sailor Moon wasn't just the best thing that ever happened to our childhood, but it also taught us, little girls, many things. As what you see and learn has a huge effect on your personal development while you grow up, we are so thankful Sailor Moon happened to us. Here are 13 powerful messages hidden in Sailor Moon that made us into the strong and independent women we are today.

1. The fact that there is a 'heroes club' only for women.
