Shout Outs

stuunalee on Tumblr: “What I absolutely loved about Agent Carter is that,well, for one its a female led show . Hayley Atwell is one of the most talented actresses I’ve ever come across. Secondly, it gives young girls like myself such positive lessons. For example, Peggy saying that she knows her value, and anyone’s else’s opinion doesn’t matter. Peggy is a positive role model for many young women and even men and I admire that to no end.!”
