30 Things To Learn From Badass Historical Moms
A badass historical mother still has vices
Carrie made history by bringing the anti-damsel in distress, Princess Leia, to life. Leia was a badass princess and later became a badass historical mom by bringing Kylo Ren, the destroyer of worlds, into being. Leia was the daughter of the ultimate baddy who gave birth to the next generation’s naughtiest boy. Her evolution from princess to general is serious #goals. The woman who played her also evolved, growing from an actress’ daughter to a leading lady to an advocate for mental health and drug abuse issues.
Carrie Fisher unfortunately succumbed to her vices. Her daughter, however, doesn’t let that ruin the memory of her mother. Famously calling her “Momby,” Billie Lourde has been just as candid (and hilarious) about her family’s struggles. Her very daughter’s resilience is a testament to Carrie’s strength and legend.
