15 Best Female Characters of 2017

by Zofia Wijaszka

December 13th, 2017

2017 was definitely a women’s year. The viewers received amazing, leading female roles. The “Hollywood revolution’ happened, which was one of the most important events for the last few months. That’s why I decided to pick 15 best written female characters and put them all together: omen from TV and cinema, all strong, all with purpose.

15.  Kimmy Schmidt – “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt”

unbreakable-kimmy-schmidt-trailer-series-3

 “Cause women are strong as hell!” – says the song from opening credits. And it’s true. Kimmy, in a funny way, shows the viewers life after tragic events in her life. After she was kidnapped and held captive for many years, she’s finally free and decides to pull herself together, find a job apartment and even study. The main character doesn’t ever give up, is optimistic (sometimes even too much…) and always helps others.  All of that in a great comedy series.

 

14. Claire Underwood – “House of Cards”

Claire isn’t one of the good ones. She’s sneaky and manipulative. But somehow she seems to confirm the saying – “behind every great man, there is even greater woman”. In the show she plays president’s wife. Although Frank is the one in charge, the viewers can see that she is the one with the plan. Claire defines strong, independent woman who fights for what’s hers. And, as movie geeks could recently find out, she will be the main character in the last, final season of the show.

 

13.  Jessica Jones – “The Defenders” and “Marvel’s Jessica Jones”

Jessica_Jones_(SRS)

Jessica Jones is a former super heroine. Due to the post-traumatic stress disorder caused by past events, the heroine decides to give up her costume and open her own detective agency to help others. According to Melissa Rosenberg, savior in her world is a devastated heroine with defects, but the same interesting figure regardless of gender. The new image of the heroine contributes to the cessation of the idealization of women as those beautiful and fragrant, not only in the case of the world of super heroes, but women’s figures in general. Jones shows how to escape from physical abuse and then be stronger everyday.

 

12. Clementine – “The Walking Dead” Game

celementine

Clementine isn’t a typical character I would put into my list. But, as a strong, leading woman, she fits perfectly. She was only 8 when she lost her parents in the zombie epidemic. Since day one with the help of other characters, she was growing up in front of gamers’ eyes to become strong, independent, dangerous young woman. When we meet her in season 3 of the game, she isn’t that sweet girl anymore. She knows how to fight, how to use the gun and – most importantly, how to use words to get what she wants.

 

11. Madison Clark – “Fear The Walking Dead”

Madison comes from the same created universe as Clementine. A mother of two, she will do everything to protect her children during escape from zombies. The viewers see her, surrounded by male company and see immidiately who rules – Madison. But she has a way. She lets them think they are in charge. That way she can do what she thinks is right.  And mostly all of that turns out to be true.

 

10. Women from “Handsmaid’s Tale”

handsmaids tale

Awards come from everywhere – for the show and Elizabeth Moss. Nothing surprising. The series shows how the real world might look like if people don’t do anything about t. That’s why it’s all so real. The cast of “Handmaid’s Tale” is a group of strong women who are being silenced. But they wont’t give up, oh no.

 

9. Women from “Orange is The New Black”

orange-is-the-new-black-season-5-photo002-1497020689503_1280w

People are familiar with the show that tells a story of  female inmates from Lichfield. After fifth season that was released in June, everything escalated. As I was writing in my previous post about the show, “The anger, grief after a loss of their friend and exhaustion causes a huge riot where women take hostages (all guards) and threaten not to let them go if MCC and governor don’t do what they want – better education, better treating, nicer guards and most importantly – a trial for the one who killed their friend. “. Characters show us how it’s like to fight for something important, how to make demands and destroy unequal treating.

 

8.  Women from  “Big Little Lies”

040317-big-little-lies-kids-lead

Emmy awarded TV show is now nominated to Golden Globes. Nicole Kidman, Reese Whiterspoon, Zoe Kravitz, Shailene Woodley and Laura Dern portrayed five amazing women, mothers and wives who will not stand still if something happens. One dark secret connects them all, but they are loyal to each other. The characters break awful stereotype created by media and film industry about female friendship – women can be friends without talking about each other behind their back. The series also touches very important subject – physical violence. One of the characters suffers from the hands of husband, but in society they are both regarded as a wonderful couple. “Big Little Lies” shows how to escape and how hard it is to do it. The creators also scold the question “Why did not she say anything earlier?”

 

7. Princess Diana – “Wonder Woman”

WONDER WOMAN

Patty Jenkins freshened up very known super heroine. After the premiere of the movie, it turned out how important it was for the society, for children to see female super hero on the big screen. Gal Gadot, who portrayed Diana, was touched by how many children thanked her and told her they want to be just like Wonder Woman – not only girls.

 

6. Eleven – “Stranger Things”

 eleven

Eleven, the young character with supernatural powers portrayed by Millie Bobby Brown yet again shows the viewers how coming back to life looks like after mental and physical abuse. Eleven also finds amazing friends. She tries her best to protect them from everything. She’s just a girl, but she went through hell. Then again had to hide for a long time. She stayed strong though, because she knew her friends will need her.

 

5. Lorraine Broughton – “Atomic Blonde”

Atomic_Blonde

Long expected movie with Charlize Theron as a main role turned out to be a huge success. As the spy, Charlize had to find out who is who, who betrayed agency and who is on her side. She has only one rule – don’t trust no one. She gets beat up time after time, but Lorraine gets her revenge. The fights scenes are amazing. Lorraine is strong and doesn’t give up. She wants truth and she will get it one way or another.

 

4. Aurora Luft – “X Company”

Aurora_s3

Aurora is smart, educated and knows how to fight. She is also a leader of four different spies – men, during the World War II. She’s the first war female character that has to lead men to sabotage Germans. That is why it’s even more important. War times were hard for women, as we know from history. They were only supposed to wait for men coming from war zones. But Aurora is different. She tries her best to plan their mission and also calm down her team when it’s about arguments. She also loses her love, but she gets up and runs. She has to.

 

3. Delphine Cormier – “Ophan Black”

del

The real hero, woman in love, scientist. Character portrayed by Evelyne Brochu still divides people – the ones that love her and the ones that hate her. No matter what side (although I don’t understand how not to adore her) is it, she is the savior of the clones from “Orphan Black”. She sacrifised her life to help her lover Cosima and her sister to fight the system. Delphine even took the bullet for them and dissapeared to be found on the strange island. Even there, under the watchful eyes of the creator  of Neolusion, she did everything to help in a fight for freedom. Her character also shows that love is love, no matter who. Delphine helped many young women to find their place, their sexuality in  a society.

 

2. Siobhan Mrs S. Sadler – “Orphan Black”

mrs s

The second hero of the show, mother for “chickens” Mrs S, as well as Delphine, sacrifised her life to help her daughter Sarah and her sisters to have normal life. It can be easily said – Siobhan Sadler can be identified as mother archetype. The heroine is always for her daughter, for Sarah’s sisters and her granddaughter Kira. She will not hesitate to use a weapon and kill for the family. She sacrifises her life (which still hurts to see!) for the clones to be free. For them to be who they want.

 

1. Sisters from “Orphan Black”

orphan-black-finale-review-season-5-episode-10

Sarah, Cosima, Alison, Helena, Rachel, Krystal and many others. 274 women genetically identical to be correct. Main clones that call themselves sisters join their forces to fight the system, to gain a freedom, to escape from creators once and for all. To be seen as people, not experiment. Women fight, they sacrifice everything for that fight, because autonomy is the most important thing to have.

The characters amazingly created by Tatiana Maslany forever influenced society and film industry. The Canadian actress, as all the clones, created manifique, special and unique female characters that were needeed in media. I think more people should watch “Orphan Black” to truly see the galaxy of women and feel the power.

Weinstein Scandal And (not only) Women Spoke Out

9th of November, 2017

Today, surprisingly, not about a new show or women in tv. Actually, it’s gonna be about women in movie industry and the scandal with Harvey Weinstein that led to another scandals and acussations. I’m writing about it, because it’s important for the movie and television industry as well as for women, not only in show business.

One of the first actresses that came out with accusation was Rose McGowan, the actress known from “Grindhouse: Planet Terror” by Rodriguez, “Charmed” and first Wes Craven’s “Scream”. She also spoke out about Ben Affleck’s words that defended Weinstein.  “I have been silenced for 20 years,” she told as I read in “New York Times”. “I have been slut-shamed. I have been harassed. I have been maligned. And you know what? I’m just like you.” Along with McGowan, more and more movie stars decided to stop hiding and admit to the horrible, sexual harrasment of Mr. Weinstein. Gwyneth Paltrow, Ashley Judd, Angelina Jolie and many many others accused Harvey Weinstein of sexual harassment. The amount of accusations was so huge that Weinstein’s wife decided to leave him.

All the reports somehow signaled Hollywood which led to “#metoo” action started by actress and activist Alyssa Milano who speaks loudly about politic stuff on her private Twitter.

IMG_20171109_090519.png

Little did she know… Milano had no idea she would start a wave of women committing that they were abused, sexually as well as mentally. Suddenly it wasn’t only one woman. It was thousands, millions of them – actresses, singers, writers, ordinary women, women who we see everyday.

Milano showed the huge flaw that Hollywood has. Many actresses claimed that they told someone in the past. But managers told them to be quiet. This time Hollywood decided to change.

Unfortunately, “famous abuse”, how I want to call it, didn’t touch only women. Just little after Weinstein scandal, Anthony Rapp, the actor, accused “House of Cards” Kevin Spacey of sexual harrasment. Rapp claimed that Spacey acted inappropriate towards him when he was 14 years old. In response, Kevin Spacey blamed “drunken behaviour” and right after deflected the accusation by coming out as a gay man.

IMG_20171109_091111.jpg

His response got loud just to hit him right away. People didn’t like his response. They accused him of deflecting and hiding behind his own sexuality. Which was true.

All those situations from the past month left people whit questions. One that is mostly asked is “why didn’t they talk earlier? Why now? They just want them to talk about them.” When I hear this, I want to scream. Why? Because people don’t know how it’s like. People don’t know the movie business and the fact that actresses and actors are only puppets. Besides, everybody is their own person. Everybody has different feelings and the strength. So before someone says that again, think. Please.

I hope the whole situation with Weinstein and Spacey show not only Hollywood but also worldwide movie industry that sexual abuse is really dangerous and (unfortunately) common thing. We can fight it by speaking out. Everybody. Men and women.

(WO)MAN UP SERIES: FEAR THE WALKING DEAD

17th of October, 2017

fearwalkingdeadPOSTER2

“Fear The Walking Dead” is a post-apocalyptic TV show created by AMC Studios, Circle of Confusion and Valhalla Entertainment. Alike “The Walking Dead”, production focuses on a group of people who try to survive the epidemy of zombies. Madison, her husband Travis, their children: Alicia, Nick and Chris as well as Travis’ ex-wife Liza. They move from Los Angeles to Mexico, they do everything for survival. Characters gain new allies as well as enemies. They also lose their loved ones.

“Fear…” is more focused on relationships between people than the whole idea of zombies and, in my opinion, it’s something that attracts people. I feel like walkers are only a trigger for people to start fighting. Throughout three seasons, the wievers have a chance to see characters evolve and change. In the name of the series, I decided to focus on one of the main, two female characters: Madison Clark and her daughter Alicia who are one of the most imporant figures in the show.

Red14

Maddie is with the viewers from the very beginning. She is like mother who leads her children through the pain, laughter and – most importantly, survival. For many reasons, Madison is very alike “Orphan Black’s” Mrs. Siobhan Sadler (I wrote about the show earlier). When she finds out that zombie apocalypse is true, she doesn’t panic, no. A woman decides to find all her family and fight for survival. Many times she is about to sacrifice herself to protect not only her family and children, but also her friends. Maybe her behaviour has a connection to what she used to do befoe zombies? Madison used to be a therapist, some sort of psychologist in high school where also Alicia attended.

She is the one who makes all tough decisions, no matter what people say. Madison doesn’t care what others think. All she wants to do is to keep everyone alive and safe. Althought she loves her children very much, she doesn’t treat them like that. When Nick, her son wants to leave on his own, she lets him. The same goes with her husband and his son. In my opinion,  Madison is the embodiment of a strong, modern-day female warrior. It even comes to her opposing the army and threatening to kill one of soldiers just to get out of danger. And the danger doesn’t come from the walkers, but from the mortals.

Madison is only a human, of course, and sometimes even her loses it. But then she can calm down without doing anything stupid and I think it’s a great quality. The woman breaks a stereotype of weak, unstable female character in a war. She doesn’t need a saviour. She is a saviour. She doesn’t let anybody lead her. She’s the one who leads.

alicia-clark-4742x3163-fear-the-walking-dead-season-2-4k-1993

Her daughter, Alicia, is really alike her mother. She’s young, around 18 years old. Although her age, she is mature enough to take a lead when Madison leaves to look for water and supplies. Alicia, young woman, has to make tough decisions that lead to either death or survival of people on the Ranch (their temporary home). That one situation defiens her, makes her stronger, but also makes her realize that nothing might change. That apocalypse is permanent and they might never have a normal house ever again.

When the viewers meet Alicia, she seems like a spoiled brat, always on her phone and listening to her music. She only cares about finding her high school boyfriend. But once the apocalypse starts, fans have a chance to see a new face of female character – strong, caring about her family etc.

It’s really important for female fans all over the world to see how mother-daughter relationship works here. When Madison is not in charge, she gives Alicia that chance. The viewers can see what zombie apocalypse does to Alicia. She’s not only more mature, she has to grow up faster and become her mom’s partner. But all of that has a price. Alicia seems to lose all hope for the future. Episode after episode her flame goes out. And she has to do something about it.

Besides Madison and Alicia, there is also Ofelia and Liza. But the first two are the ones who the viewers know from the very beginning. They show that women can be very strong, even in the most dangerous life situation. They also can unite if they have to, without any agruments or grudges.

The viewers had a chance to see two hours’ season finale previous Sunday. Hopefully, we will soon see what’s gonna happen with Madison and others as the creators left us with a huge cliffhanger.

“(Wo)man Up” Series: Orphan Black

10th of August, 2017

Orphan Black all - color sentence (2)

Eurythmics once sang along with Aretha Franklin those lines: Sisters are doing it for themselves. Standing on their own two feet. And ringing on their own bells. There are no better words to describe “clones-sisters” from Orphan Black – BBC America production created by Graeme Manson and John Fawcett. The viewers will have a pleasure (or sadness and pleasure, because production is one of the best ones) to see the last, finale episode Saturday, at 10 on BBC America channel. That is why Orphan Black will do the honour to begin new (Wo)man Up Series, where I write about women in tv shows and movies (once a week – different production).

Orphan Black is, without doubt, one of the best, the smartest, the most dynamic production people have ever seen. There is action, mystery and incredible chemistry between characters. All those qualities together gave me a thrill I never felt before. Tatiana Maslany, the main actress playing ALL(sic!) clones, is one of the most talented artist entertainment industry had ever seen – no doubt! She played almost 30 or more clones in the show. With the help of Katherine Alexandre – her double stunt – she created a group of amazing, independent, sometimes funny women who are not afraid to stand up and fight for their rights even if it means sacrifise. Oh, there was a lot of sacrifise. Fifth finale season gave fans one of the most brutnal clone death – MK, quiet clone, Helsinki survivor who was helping others. After the episode, Internet literally broke. People were grieving after MK’s death. That only proves how much of a talent Maslany really is: I try to get roles that challenge me in what I can do and who I think I can portray. For me, it’s about creating characters with really fascinating stories, because that’s what I like to watch on TV, said Maslany in one of many interviews.  Every one of Tatiana’s characters had beautiful, often sad story and the acress showed that without any fail.

Throughout all five seasons, the clones, which the audience had the best chance to get to meet Sarah Manning, Cosima Niehaus, Alison Hendrix, Helena and Rachel Duncan. Each of them, together, and also separately have shown that feminine solidarity is one of the most powerful things in the world. Each one is different, has a different way of being, different experiences – Sarah Manning is lost woman with daughter who wants to find her way in life, Cosima Niehaus is a smart scientist, trying to find a love she deserves. Alison Hendrix is not-so-typical soccer mom of two and suspects her husband is her monitor.  Helena is an Ukrainian orphan, Sarah’s real twin, trained to kill others. In her example, you can observe how difficult it is to free yourself from the mental abuse. Helena was raised by Prolethians, the group of dangerous people. Trained, tortured, raised without love, the character is a perfect example of a person, of a woman who survived and wants a change of her life.

 

bad siblings

 

Rachel Duncan is a contrast of her sisters. Raised by Neolutionists – the creators of clones, she was being prepared to take over responsibilities of her guardian, Aldous. In many moments, Rachel resembles Helena. Although both women were raised differently, there is a certain kind of abuse that, in both cases, is similar. But the two characters show that you can get out of the oppression and after a lot of hard work, try to live normally.

Although sisters and Rachel Duncan are on opposite sides, there is day when they all have to unite to defend even more powerful villain – the founder of Neolution, PT Westmoreland who claims to be over 100 years old. Orphan Black has come to a point where there is, really is a man behind the curtain. There is a problem of patriarchy, still fresh and present  in modern world. Although PT tries to control women’s bodies, sisters, Siobhan – Sarah’s mother and Delphine along with Felix and Adele do everything they can to defy him. The time finally had come to show how strong and independed women can be to gain their rights and autonomy.

To defeat the enemy, Cosima Niehaus along with Delphine Cormier, her monitor and partner in life, and Scott, has to explore Neolutionism and work on clones’ advancing diseanse that touches her personally, too. Cosima reflects knowledge in Orphan Black, as well as his own sexuality. The scientist demonstrates that being scientifically gifted is not a graph of being so-called. geek. Cosima and Delphine (Cophine) helped many young women deal with their own sexuality. And if the series can positively affect the change in the public, it can only testify to the greatness and freshness of production.

Sarah Manning and Alison Hendrix, although so very different, they seem to be so similar. Sarah Manning is bravado, which sometimes ends up really bad. Alison seems to be like that too. A woman often makes decisions based on emotions. Both sisters have a problem with the abuse of alcohol. Both have children. Sarah Manning has a daughter, Alison has two adopted children – boy and a girl. In spite of this, Alison seems to be happier, giving the audience a laugh and a respite. Sarah, on the other hand, introduces powerful, often darker emotions.

Sisters show they can fight but they couldn’t handle everything without help of Delphine Cormier, Siobhan “Mrs. S.” Sadler, Felix Dawkins- Sarah’s brother and Adele, his biological sister. We also cannot forget about Art – police detective.

Delphine Cormier had come a long way into Clone Club to be finally trusted yet there are still some people who don’t truly believe her. But, to be honest, there is nothing to believe in or not believe in anymore. Delphine had been welcomed in clone family for good. Evelyne Brochu, playing the rold of the blonde scientist said: Women can’t only be the person only there to french kiss the hero after he’s won the game or won the war. Women are half of humanity. They’re part of history. Brochu proves that in her role. Delphine’s specialty is immunology, whose heroine devotes essentially all her life. Doctor, whose home country is France, is assigned the role of monitor. Delphine shows viewers the world of science and technology, which is extremely important in Canadian production, but not only, because the viewer has a chance to watch the heroine through the deeper relationship with Cosima that suddenly turns into love.

cophine2

In all its complexity, the image of Delphine’s world, however, creates some coherence. Spectators have the opportunity to watch her: her climbing the ranks of the career and the gradation of feelings that character reveals to the audience season-after-season. She is an employee first and answers before Leekie and then takes his place. Delphine becomes director of the institute and has to make decisions that affect not only her and her relationship with Cosima but also with her lover’s sisters. Delphine Cormier proves in every season of production that she will do everything to be a good boss and an effective caregiver. Despite the discrimination of the Cosima’s sisters, she still tries to do everything for them. The doctor proves to viewers thinking that her relationship with Cosima is ephemeral and not important, that it is an illusion. Delphine also shows that she is a much better boss than her predecessor. Delphine Cormier is the defition of a strong woman who will do anything for love and truth. mrs s ssssSiobhan Sadler keeps her pace with one exception. Not only does she prove the power of women, but also shows how tough and important it is to be a mother. Mrs. S adpoted Sarah and Felix when they were kids, had to handle all their behaviours, then Sarah’s dissapearens. She had to take care of Kira, Sarah’s daughter. But she did all of it in the name of love. Siobhan is the shadow of her family through all seasons of production. A woman cares for their well-being and takes care of them. Even when it comes to tragedy and the woman loses her mother who turned out to be a clone original – she still stands with her loved ones. Siobhan along with Felix, Delphine and Adele, destroy the Neolution. Siobhan, even for the price of her life, will not let their chickens to be killed. She sacrifises herself which is one of the most powerful, most heartbreaking scenes in Orphan Black. 

 

 

Tatiana Maslany said once: I feel so lucky to be in a show that puts women at the center. And this is true. Production proves that women can be strong and fight for what’s good for them. As Felix said in episode eight, season five – To galaxy of women!

Ten TV and Movie Women Who Inspire Me

19th of July, 2017

official

Who run the world? Girls! That’s how a known singer used to sing. And thank God media listen and started creating evolving, important roles for women who now are heroines, scientists, saviors and many more. Situation with women in television is getting better. Hopefully, it’s gonna improve even more.

I present you my own, personal list of brave women from television and cinema who inspire me or inspired me in my teenage/adult life. It is amazing thing that fictional characters can positively influence people’s lives.

1. Delphine Cormier

Orphan Black

The female scientist from amazing Canadian TV show Orphan Black not only shows us that “science” field is not only for men, but also that love is love, no matter who you love – woman or a man. Delphine is smart, very dedicated to her work, brave with brilliant mind. She can even take a bullet for people she loves. She believes in science, not career. She can sacrifice a lot and fight like a tiger. That’s why I admire her character. Plus she is a great boss.

2. Claire Underwood

kk9fvmzif5yfncgb70xg (1)

She’s not perfect. Nobody is. I could even go further – Claire is not the purest woman in the “presidency” world. But she showed me that if you’re strong enough, you can achieve anything you want. You shouldn’t care about what other people think or say. You should always be calm and talk peacefully, because then you will annoy your opponets even more and make them talk very silly things. It’s hard for people who are extravertics, but it’s possible!

3. Aurora Luft

X-Co-310-Aurora-Faber-2

Aurora Luft is a character from Canadian-Hungarian TV show X Company.  She is incredibly brilliant, speaks English, German and French. Add to that, she has amazing ability to melt into the crowd. Her alter ego – Helena Baeur, steals information from Nazi so then Aurora and the group could use it. Aurora is also amazingly skilled with using a knife. She can kill bad people in a matter of second. But the best thing about her is that she is in charge of the group of spies – all men. They all treat her equally, they think she’s an excellent leader and very smart woman. Aurora gives them the same. That’s what I value the most in her character.

4. Siobhan Sadler

orphanblacks02e022

“Everyone’s mom” from Orphan Black showed me how much of a hard work you have to put to be a good mom. Sometimes you need to fight very bad people to protect your family. That’s what she does. She also has to handle her foster kids’ behaviours, which is not easy thing to do. But Siobhan handles this just great. Thanks to her I know that moms are the most hard working human beings.

5. Stef & Lena Fosters

abcfamily

I was thinking if I should pick Lena or Stef, but then I decided to pick them both and put in one number. They are wives from Freeform TV show The Fosters. Together they are raising five children (four adopted and one born). The Fosters is amazing not only because of the great cast. Stef and Lena show viewers, that being gay doesn’ make you bad parent – opposite! They wanted children no matter what, they make mistakes, but they can always cope. Their sons and daughters love them and know they can talk to thme about everything.

6. Phoebe Halliwell

7x18-Phoebe

Thanks to her character from Charmed I fell in love with martial arts. Phoebe taught me that not only boys can do that, girls too! Phoebe is strong, independent and funny. She was very bad teenager, but she understood her mistakes and reunited with her sisters. We also can see amazing sister/women power in Charmed. They fight the most dangerous demons with her powers, but even with powers, they would be useless if not their amazing connection they have.

7. Lisbeth Salander

19285374

Lisbeth Salander is anti-social, rude and  dangerous. But somehow she can teach us, that no matter what, you should fight for yourself and for your autonomy. She had the worst childhood, but she survived. Then she was raped by the person who should help her – her social worker. But she survived, she got her revenge and it made her even stronger. I think that’s why she is on my list – for her will of survival.

8. Snow White 

103MoreIsolated

Snow White from Once Upon a Time where the creators made female princesses the real fighters! One of them was Snow White. I value her because of her strenght and so much love. She was the one who fought for the Prince Charming. She didn’t wait for him in some tower, no. She took all risk she could. Her character was an incredible addition to the show.

9. Lisa Cuddy

40927_story__house-lisa-edelstein-as-dr-lisa-cuddy-4

Lisa Cuddy, the character from House, M.D was the first female who became a Dean in America under 35 years old. She showed me back in the day, me 15 years old teenager, that woman can be a great boss and have a family in the same time. Throughout the years, I finished watching House, M.D. but I would still remember about her power, wisdom and cheekiness. Especially in taking charge of House.

10. Trinity

trinity_the_matrix-11351

Her and Phoebe Halliwell were my first tv show heroines who changed my perspectives. When I saw Martix for the first time, I had birthday. Then I saw Trinity on the screen and thought – Wow! She’s a woman and she can be in the team with men, be as smart and strong as them! I need to admit, I had a crush on Trinity back in the day. She was this brave woman and I wanted to be just like her!

I hope you will like my list. All those movies and TV shows I highly recommend!
