In honor of International Women’s Day, here are my 5 favorite badass female TV characters (in no particular order because how could I rank them?!)
Brooke Davis – One Tree Hill
Loyal, funny, fashionable: Brooke grew from high school cheerleader to class president, savvy businesswoman, and beyond, always stronger and more capable than she might seem on the surface.
Veronica Mars – Veronica Mars
Sassy, jaded, independent teen detective Veronica Mars investigates cases with trademark wit, ingenuity, and intelligence.
Leslie Knope – Parks and Recreation
Bubbly, optimistic, and fiercely protective of her friends, Leslie is a shining star of positivity in the political sphere of her beloved Pawnee, Indiana.
Lorelai Gilmore – Gilmore Girls
No one can have a conversation with more speed and pop culture references than Lorelai Gilmore, whose humor, charm, independence, and warmth make her my favorite Gilmore girl.
Buffy Summers – Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Strength, speed, and quippy comebacks make Buffy a pure delight to watch, and her consistent defeat of demons, apocalypses, and the patriarchy is truly inspirational.
These are just a few of my favorite fictional TV females. Thoughts? Comment below or tweet @tvlindy
