"[Strong character], female" not "[Strong female], character"

Someone with her own identity, personality, agenda, and story purpose. She does not need to be a strong person, rather she should be a strong, well-developed character.

When in doubt, use the Plinket test: Can you describe the character without saying what they looked like, what kind of costume they wore, or what their profession or role in the story was?

Suggestions welcome.
