In both the real and fictional world, there is no shortage of fierce females and badasses to make us feel like we can accomplish anything that we put our minds to. Throughout history, women were supposed to be seen and not heard, and know what their place was, which was to take care of the household and children.
Over the last century, women have slowly but surely made it possible to be viewed as equals and in some cases better than their male counterparts in many different fields, many of them making a name for themselves and women everywhere.
Although fictional, characters like Meredith Grey from "Grey's Anatomy," Hermione Granger from the "Harry Potter" series, Elle Wood from "Legally Blonde," Katniss Everdeen from the "Hunger Games" series, Daenerys Targaryen from "Game of Thrones," Olivia Pope from "Scandal" and Ellen Ripley from "Alien" have stood out for being themselves and for not caring what people think of them.
