Fisher was also praised for her years of mental health campaigning and as an icon for feminism.
Carrie Fisher dedicated her platform to mental health awareness & female empowerment. She is a reason + reminder to keep up your fight. RIP

Carrie Fisher’s Postcards From the Edge was the first book I ever read about mental health. It is raw and brilliant and funny and inspiring.

Carrie Fisher’s most feminist act was her frankness about being bipolar in a world where women are called “crazy” https://t.co/d3kcPWXZUD
