We have a long way to go, but I think it's a positive step that readers are saying 'this isn't ok, I don't want this portrayal of women in my fiction, I don't like the dichotomy the author is building between pretty girls and strong ones.'

Noticing these things - and calling out people who perpetuate them - is an important step towards changing culture.
