5 Things That Make The Women Of The Addams Family Special

1. Their Feminist Nature

The most fascinating thing about The Addams Family has always been the extremely feminist nature of its characters, from the very beginning. Morticia Addams has always been the head of the family and Wednesday Addams has always been one of the strongest female characters, ever. I am literally obsessed with them, no lies there.

2. Their Sassy Demeanour

Some of the most iconic lines in the series through the years have been delivered by Wednesday and Morticia. They know exactly how to put everyone in their place with the bat of an eye and a simple smirk. This makes them all the more special, sassy and of course, gothically sarcastic.

3. Their Uniqueness

When The Addams Family characters were brought into the real world, all hell broke loose as their unique nature made them stand out. But, this never pulled them down. Morticia literally painted the house black and threw the ghastliest gala of the era. On the other hand, Wednesday chose the blackest possible bag for her school and threw the snarkiest comments at every kid that tried to call her different.

4. Their Fashion Choices

The Addams Family characters have always been fashion forward and way ahead of their time. I mean who doesn’t love Moticia’s iconic dresses and amazing makeup and Wednesday’s Iconic gothic looks? They have also helped Pugsley and Gomez pull up their fashion games by helping them dress in the best ways possible. All hail the women of The Addams Family and their fashion sense!

5. Their Love For The Family

The Addams Family characters adore everyone in their families. Morticia is a fabulous mother and her supreme goal in life is to shape her gothic and sadistic children into the best psychopaths that they can possibly be. On the other hand, Wednesday is very protective of her family, she loves them and does everything in her power to protect them of course, without ever admitting it. She acts emotionless but she is one of the deepest characters, ever.

I have immense love for The Addams Family in my heart and I cannot wait to watch the upcoming reboot by Tim Burton. I really hope it comes by soon. Are you as excited as I am?
