These women have fought the biggest battles on tv are smart, strong, bold, fun, and yes… they are the best of the best!
Some days ago a user on the Internet asked: “what is the woman of the small screen that most inspires you?”, the answers did not wait, and some of them are as amazing as your favorite characters.
1. Olivia Benson, Law & Order: SVU
I changed my major to criminology by Olivia Benson. Now I’m working for my masters, so that someday I can advise women on probation and incarcerated.
2. Jessica Jones, Jessica Jones
As a woman with post-traumatic stress disorder, I was relieved to find a female character that’s called sexism, not apologizes for her personality and fight for others who have been victims. Jessica is strong and challenging.
3. Cristina Yang, Grey’s Anatomy
His rough style and sensible thing to do was beautiful. I am 14 years old and I plan to be a doctor like her.
4. Buffy Summers, Buffy the Vampire Slayer
To see Buffy fight against loneliness, the depression, the heartbreak, the loss and always move forward, it has inspired me to continue clinging during my darkest moments.
5. Olivia Pope, Scandal
She taught me that women are just as strong as men, and showed me how to defend myself.
6. Jane Villanueva, Jane the Virgin
After seeing the love between Jane and Xiomara, and how Jane reconnects with her even after I betrayed your trust, made me regain my relationship with my mother.
7. Leslie Knope, Parks and Rec
Like Leslie, I also work in the government and to see her so motivated and focused on projects inspires me. Working in government can be daunting, but Leslie gives me strength to keep fighting the good fight.
8. Felicity Smoak, Arrow
She is the heroine of my daughter and could not have chosen a better! He tells anyone who will listen: ‘my brain is my superpower as Felicity!’
9. Raven Reyes, The 100
I wear a brace for the knee every day and what I will do for the rest of my life, and see a girl my age to be tough, smart and sexy while wearing a brace, makes me feel less self-conscious about wearing mine.
10. Poussey Washington, Orrange Is The New Black
It was my first infatuation female and helped me to realize that I was bisexual. She had this incredible combination of femininity, hardness and foolishness. Is allowed to be tough, but also vulnerable.
11. Kimmy Schmidt, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt
His character helped me overcome my depression. Went through something traumatic, but changed his life and gave the best of himself.
12. Brooke Davis, One Tree Hill
She showed me that your past does not defines you, nor the traumatic experiences. The moments that you have lived alone you shape to be a better person. I was going through a really insecure in life, and to see her achieve everything she always wanted really helped me.
13. Rebecca Bunch, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend
She inspired me to accept my mental illness and take the necessary measures to cope with it. I am grateful to see a female character on tv that fight against mental illness in a real way and honestly.
14. Brienne of Tarth, Game of Thrones
I’ve always been a little self-conscious for being a woman, curvy with a strong personality, but to see Brienne makes me feel proud of myself.
15. Lorelai Gilmore, Gilmore Girls
While growing up, I looked at her as a powerful woman. She was mistress of herself, her life and her body, and was not afraid to be passionate about the things that he loved. The fact that it wasn’t perfect made it even more identifiable to me.
