This blog will serve as a way for Rachel, the writer, to present her research, findings and thoughts on the Outside Girl trope.
An Outside Girl is a female character that actively withdraws from her peers. She is usually (but is not required to be) an adolescent or in her early twenties. She is often smart, independent and funny, but cannot or will not fit in with others in her surroundings.
Rachel wrote her senior thesis on Outside Girls in the media and will continue to update this blog once or twice a week. Please feel free to share comments or suggestions for other Outside Girl characters.
