This blog is dedicated to show and change the looks of ridiculous female armors (and other outfits) that women tend to have in media; such as games and comics. The purpose is to show that over-sexualized women is not "empowering", but clearly offensive and ridiculous - not to mention it's also clearly out of context. We'll also show that their clothes could be greatly improved with a touch of common sense, equality and character. Feel free to submit!
Please take note that Tica, the creator of RHA, is currently on Hiatus.

My favourite book series as a child was always the Tortall series by Tamora Pierce (about strong women making it in a medieval world). One thing I noticed was that all the armour/cover images were really practical for the women.

Examples:

Book Four or Series one, Lioness Rampant. (pic 1)

Book Four of Series three, Lady Knight. (pic 2)

I definitely suggest the series for anyone who is looking for a well-written set of female protagonists.

Love it! (:
