Let’s talk about an antagonist you want to root for. The Queen of the Japanese underground has a dark and tragic past which makes her a sympathetic character. As a young child of 9 witnessing her parents brutal murder, she sets out to avenge them. Her target is Japan’s cruelest Yakuza boss, pedophile Matsumoto. 2 years later with a sword thrust into his gut, O-Ren asks Matsumoto if he remembers her while his teeth crack under the pressure of her sword. She goes on to become the worlds top female Assassin and the queen of the Tokyo underworld. She makes the hard calls, including the time she publically executed a Yakuza boss for insulting her mixed heritage. That’s pretty bad ass for a boss.November 27, 2017 at 3:57 pm #7178
Mako Mori from Pacific Rim, because she’s brave and courageous, she’s confident, a hard worker. Family is very important for her, she has her own goals and she’s able to accomplish them. She follows her heart, she doesn’t quit. She’s a fighter. <3November 27, 2017 at 4:18 pm #7181
Marge Gunderson in Fargo. Sensible and badass. The epitome of strong midwestern woman!November 27, 2017 at 4:33 pm #7182
Lis from ‘The girl with the dragon tattoo’ just because she was a bossy, bad ass bitch whondidn’t take shit from anyone, AND she was smart and hard working. 🤷🏻♀️November 27, 2017 at 7:02 pm #7183
Francie Nolan from “A Tree Grows in Brooklyn.” She truly demonstrates a great deal of perseverance, determination, and hopefulness. I love her character and drive to make a better life for herself and her loved ones. She helped shape me if nto the person I am today, and for that I am forever grateful.November 27, 2017 at 7:13 pm #7184
Rose Dewitt Bukater – Titanic. Rose is determined to make a life for herself that doesn’t settle within any boundaries, norms, or expectations. I call that bad-assery!November 27, 2017 at 7:31 pm #7185
Frances Ha. Mega relatable. Stays true to herself and her dreams. Even though it appears she’s failing miserably at life, she ends up winning at it.November 27, 2017 at 8:18 pm #7186
Aunty Mame! Mame Dennis, did what she wanted in a time that women were to be seen and not heard. She marched to her own drum and plain and simple was a bad ass because she straight didn’t give one single f*#k what anyone thought and she lived her BEST life!!November 27, 2017 at 8:34 pm #7187
Both Marina and Holly from the criminally under appreciated Me Without You I love them because they are raw and flawed and incredibly human. Unlike other female friendships on film, this one shows the good and the bad in equal measure. Both of these women are complicated, strong, and emotional, in search of both personal fulfillment and love. I also love that the relationship that defines them both is with each other, rather than with any man. Truly a testament to the incredible power of female friendship! I think I am drawn to the raw potency of their friendship and the strength they each display in their vulnerabilities.November 27, 2017 at 10:03 pm #7188
Marie Antoinette via Sofia Coppola: she’s doing the best with what she’s got. Somewhere between child and woman; where she came from and who she is to be. Authentic to self while minding her title. Naturalist. Mother. Artist. Lover. Wife. Queen. Misunderstood with great intention.November 27, 2017 at 10:09 pm #7189
“Oh my darlin’, oh my darlin’, oh my darling Clementine!” Oh, Clementine Kruczynski! Could a love life in your 20s be any more honest, raw, and scabbed as you have lived it and attempted to forget it? The heart will always aggressively fight you for what it ultimately wants. You’re a solidly tough girl, navigating through emotional puberty as a runaway train without a track. Your vulnerability is ultimately the plot of the film to “Eternal Sunshine For The Spotless Mind”. To quote you, “Too many guys think I’m a concept, or I complete them, or I’m gonna make them alive. But I’m just a fucked-up girl who’s lookin’ for my own peace of mind; don’t assign me yours.” – Thank you for making me feel not alone in this world.November 28, 2017 at 12:19 am #7190
Kat Stratford from 10 Things I Hate About You was my teenage idol. A straight-talking, uncompromising feminist.November 28, 2017 at 3:59 am #7191
Ginger the chicken from Chicken Run. She’s an incredibly strong woman (well, female chicken) in a movie which is full of independent female characters. She just perfectly captures the feeling of trying really hard to get a movement started and being constantly thwarted – by killer dogs, scary farm owners and the narrow-mindedness of her peers, in her case – but she doesn’t let it stop her from achieving her goal. And she achieves it almost entirely under her own steam, without the help of men. What a woman!
