International Women’s Day spotlight: The women of Outlander
When you think of Outlander, you likely think of Claire Fraser, but there are many other women. For this International Women’s Day, it’s time to look at the important women of Outlander.
Claire Beauchamp Randall Fraser is a role model for many. The Outlander lead is a strong and fierce character, protecting those she loves through any means necessary. But she’s also kind-hearted and caring. Even those who cross her can see the kinder side to her if warranted.
There are far many more women of Outlander. For this International Women’s Day, it’s time to draw attention to each of them—the real people and not the characters.

Without Diana Gabaldon there would be no Outlander. As the author of the books, she has created this beautiful and deep world of the Frasers, the Randalls and more. She’s made us fall in love with an 18th century highlander, had us wishing that Craig na Dun was real, and even made us contemplate what we really want from life.
A story that originally started as writing practice has become an international success. Whether you know the first book as Outlander or Cross-Stitch, you know the world of Claire Beauchamp Randall Fraser and her trip through the stones.
Gabaldon is also not afraid to speak her mind and offers her thoughts on the episodes. She’s even penned an episode and hopefully that happens again. After all, she certainly knows the characters she’s created.
Now we get to see the characters come to life and that brings us onto the next woman behind the series.
