Real Influential Women Role Models (Real and Fictitious): Cornflower and Constance

Cornflower and Constance (Redwall) Ok, so Cornflower is a mouse. Regardless, she is a female mouse with brave qualities, although these brave qualities aren’t known until the cartoon television series "Redwall," based on the novel by Brian Jacques of the same name, aired. In the book she has a minor role whereas in the show she is one of the lead female characters who takes part briefly in battles but mainly spends her time healing and feeding the heroes while also trying to save Redwall from the evil Cluny the Scourge by using her intelligence and intuition. Badger Constance is a motherly figure to all of the Redwallers but yet isn’t afraid to get rough when the going gets tough to protect Redwall’s inhabitants in both book and TV show.

(RIP to Brian Jacques, who passed away February 5, 2011.)
