So the kids in your life loved The Hunger Games trilogy, and you did too. After all, who doesn’t love a feisty heroine, especially one who sparks the overthrow of tyranny?
But Katniss Everdeen isn’t the only teenage girl challenging despots in the far-off future. The Hunger Games’ popularity has pushed publishers and booksellers to stock up on tales of teens toppling the power structure. Here are 10 other girls who are bringing down repressive regimes:
- President Trump will sign an executive order on Tuesday stopping the EPA's plan to limit power plants burning coal.
- A former UK politician has made a moving apology for voting against same-sex marriage, 3 years after the first ceremonies.
- The mayor of London has urged politicians in the European Union not to "punish" Britain for the decision to leave the European Union, stating a "bad Brexit" would hurt the EU too.
- And Facebook will start globally rolling out three features today on iOS and Android that strongly resemble Snapchat. They're called Camera, Direct, and Stories.
