Smithy Recognized for Strong Female Characters
Inkshares's "Break the Bechdel" Syndicate, which recognizes strong female characters in fiction, has chosen Smithy as its December book of the month:
The "Bechdel Test" evaluates the number of female characters in a work and the quality of interaction among them. In order to pass, the work (e.g., movie, book, TV show, etc.) must have 1) at least two female characters; 2) they must have at least one conversation with each other; and 3) the conversation must be about something other than a man.
