11 Of The Most Badass Women On Netflix
Long gone are the days of TV shows being just about guys kicking ass, because now it’s all about strong women who are doing things their own way.
Whether it’s Riverdale’s Veronica Lodge making sure no one messes with her BFFs or Jessica Jones casually drop kicking a guy to get his attention, these women are the definition of independent.
And yes, Emily Gilmore is of course on this list.
1. Veronica Lodge
Riverdale’s Veronica Lodge and her looks that could kill are a force to be reckoned with, not to mention the fact that she refuses to let anyone take advantage of her friends.
2. Ashley Marin
Not only is she basically fearless, but Hannah’s mum in Pretty Little Liars isn’t afraid to do whatever’s necessary for her daughter. Even if that means destroying evidence.
Aside from the whole mind powers thing, we’ve never witnessed a girl stand up to a group of boys quite like Stranger Things’ Eleven did. Can we be her when we grow up?
Selena’s Fundamentals of Caring character Dot was refreshing beyond belief, as she proved that it IS possible for a girl to be tough and have feelings all at the same time.
Red is the ultimate mother hen in Orange Is The New Black and really will do anything for those she cares about, and she’s also scary af which helps.
6. Isabelle Lightwood
No one knows their way around a whip quite like Shadow Hunters' Isabelle, so you really wouldn’t want to come across her at any time of day other than broad daylight in a crowded place.
7. Kimmy Schmidt
As the title of the show suggests, Kimmy is quite literally unbreakable. Being trapped in an underground bunker actually did wonders for her character, re-emerging to the world ridiculously feisty.
8. Claire Hale Underwood
There are too many moments to choose from to illustrate just how badass Claire Underwood is in House Of Cards. The definition of ruthless, Claire is really quite good at the whole threat thing.
9. Emily Gilmore
There is NOTHING that Emily Gilmore can’t face head on in Gilmore Girls, this woman is honestly an inspiration. She wasn’t even seen wearing so much as a jersey basic until the reunion episodes, and that is no mean feat.
10. Lorelai and Rory
These two come as a package because together they are totally badass, providing us with all of the mother and daughter goals we could ever want.
11. Jessica Jones
Jessica Jones takes on the most literal definition of the word in this entire list, what with being able to take on anyone who comes her way without so much as breaking a sweat.
