Beatrice-

Full of Shakespearian quick wit, Beatrice thinks she knows her heart. She certainly knows her mind and speaks it in a time well before she had a social right to do so.

Sarah Connor
- Conner was my first female role model. Ever since I saw her wearing a vest doing chin-ups in a mental institute. Maternal yet determined and scary as the T-1000 itself, just take a look at those biceps!

Proving she can tough it out with the boys of the U.S Navy Seals Jordan battles through sexual discrimination and taunts fighting back with some immense press-up skills. Even after shaving her head as to be accepted as part of the team, she still also manages to stay smoking hot!

Cherry Darling

Having her right leg pulled off by Zombies doesn't deter our young Cherry. Instead of griping about her bad luck she gets right back on the horse, having a custom-made M4A1 carbine assault rifle/M203 grenade launcher attached to her stump! This proves rather useful in stopping the living dead in their tracks!

This film shows Evey played by Natalie Portman go through a fantastic transition from a naive child to a hard core political freedom fighter.

- Vada is a great pillar of aspiration for any little girl. Decked in dungarees and rosy cheeks as she swings from trees it's the girl next door I wish I could have been.

Dionysian Child's rating:

Watched Wanted Custom

Descendants of the original leading lady who have what it takes to stand shoulder to shoulder with their male counterparts.





I have split the list into four catagories:

Beauty
Here lie all the great femme-fatals and temptresses along with those more innocently and naively charming.
A certain unquantifiable quality or charm that has the ability to assert control over the male sex making them weak at the knees and putty in the hands.

Brains
Those women who can hold their own in the intellectual battle field.
Equipped with quick wit and a sharp tongue or enough mental genius to get out of a tight spot.

Brawn
Because hell hath no fury like a woman scorned!
Muscle bound goddesses who defy the laws of anatomy to challenge the likes of Hercules and Achilles. Not thinking twice before stepping in the line of fire driven by the necessity to survive, visions of revenge or a maternal instinct to protect.

Benevolence
The woman whose strength lies quietly in their iron will, good temperament, unshakable morals and youthful vitality. An often underestimated trait but one that keeps the world spinning and makes life and love worth fighting for.
These ladies will fight to the ends of the earth to defend their ideals using all the tools God equipped them with to achieve the means the their end.
All the while with a sweet good nature smile upon her lips.

This List would have been classic if there was consistency with the B's.

Do you mean an equal number of heroines in each category? That's down to Hollywood. Any suggestions for brainy characters is appreciated :-)
