This is a recent article that’s worth a read. I honestly find these articles a bit repetitive, but seeing as there are still so many people out there with NO idea about what romance novels are about (and the whole Fabio joke is still around decades later!), they’re unfortunately still needed.
Read it here:
‘I’ve said it before, and I will say it again: I love romance novels, and I’m not ashamed to admit it. And although many people think they exist on the polar opposite ends of the earth, after years of enjoying these books, I’ve learned that reading romance empowers my feminism in more ways than one.’
