Emma Thompson as Beatrice in Much Ado About Nothing is worth a mention if you are sticking to the period drama motiff.

Science Fiction has a lot to offer aswell!

Ellen Ripley? Sarah Connor? Leela from Futurama? Red Sonja? Vasquez from Aliens? Miho from Sin City?

Miss Man from Another Teen Movie (literally)?

If you want to stay away from Sci-fi, how about these:

1) The women from 'Calendar Girls'
2) Emma Thompson as Elinor Dashwood from 'Sense and Sensibility'
3) Lisa Edelstein as Lisa Cuddy in 'House MD'
4) Ione Skye as Diane Court in 'Say Anything'

.... that's what I thought of off-hand :)

Decent list. I have one very similar. Check it out if you can.

For a moment there, thought you meant "Women with actual balls" LOL! Tip for you: rename it to "Women with guts" ;D
Great list though.

Love this list, and the title make me laugh. If you're putting Megara in the list, might as well put Mulan too, she's the most bad-ass disney 'princess' out there, but the list are very good as it is :)

Great list! I can suggest a second Susan Sarandon role: Annie Savoy from "Bull Durham."

Also, one of my favorites, Linda Hunt as Stella in "Silverado."
