No discussion of intelligent and inspiring animated women would be complete without mentioning Lisa Simpson.  I’ve always wanted to be as smart, independent, and well-read as she is, and it’s my hope that there are young girls out there who feel the same way.  One of the things that makes her so inspiring is her love of literature.  A writer from The Atlantic was so inspired by Lisa’s bookishness that he created The Lisa Simpson Book Club, a blog dedicated to keeping track of the books she has read as well as every literary reference made on “The Simpsons.”  It’s a lot of fun to look through the different books, authors, and magazines that have been mentioned on the show.
