The University of Central Florida (UCF) Forum is a weekly series of opinion columns presented by the UCF News & Information. The columns are the opinions of the writers, who serve on the UCF Forum panel of faculty members, staffers and students for a year. A new column is posted each Wednesday at UCF Today and then broadcast between 7:50 and 8 a.m. Sunday on WUCF-FM (89.9).
Although horror films are inherently gruesome or disturbing, I’ve found them to be a consistent source of my role models: strong heroines who have shaped who I am as well as who I want to be. The lessons I’ve learned from some of the genre’s most iconic heroines have stayed with me through the years, from the power that lies in perseverance to the understated strength of resilience.
