As a historian who has actually read letters and diaries and newspapers from the actual Second World War I can assure you that the notion that Britons were happy about being bombed, uprooted and watching people die is categorically untrue. This tweet keeps popping up in my timeline and is making me cross so let me tell you a bit about all the ways that women and children were unhappy.

I have FINALLY ranked all of #StarWars based on screen time for women. This is now canon. Don't @ me.

43% Last Jedi
37% Force Awakens
35% Rogue One
23% Return of the Jedi
22% Empire Strikes Back
20% Phantom Menace
18% Attack of the Clones
17% Revenge of the Sith
15% A New Hope Obviously the list won't include #SoloAStarWarsStory until it's available to buy. I actually think it might score reasonably well, although it doesn't pass the Bechdel test (the other Disney films do BUT BARELY)
