Last night, the usually-skeptical Lisa Simpson fell in with some Wiccan girls, and while the witch hunt plot is tired, this clip has some choice quotes, like Bart's cruel analysis of the life decisions that lead a woman to Wicca.
The name Lisa conjures up visions of lip gloss and My Little Ponies, but Lisas aren't necessarily ditsy — even if they sometimes seem that way.
Mary Richards (The Mary Tyler Moore Show) is often noted as being the feminist icon of television. While Ms. Richards may have been a groundbreaking portrayal of a working woman, she never actually talked about being a feminist. Here, we list fictional characters who more openly flew their feminist flags.
On last night's episode, Marge got Lisa a manicure to show her that women can be smart and "pretty". The two swapped versions of stories about Queen Elizabeth I, Snow White and The Fountainhead.
On last night's episode of The Simpsons, Homer learned that Lisa is a loner at school, and dedicated his time to making her more popular, with the help of the book Chicks With Cliques.

Lisa decides to make a heartfelt…

I never thought I…
Last night's episode of The Simpsons struck a particular chord with me because it was all about Lisa's newfound interest in smoking, which she undertakes in order to lose weight and handle the stress of ballet class. I quit smoking in April 2003 with the help of Zyban, but about a month ago, I picked it up again, due…
