Iconic Women of Pop Culture*

With everything going on in the world these days, sometimes you need to get away from it all and escape with a good TV show or a movie. Wheter it's a fantasy, romance, action, or a box set, it all helps me forget about all the crap that's in the news these days. I currently have a small 19 inch TV in my bedroom, but would love to get the new Ultra HD 4K TV from Panasonic, as I'd love to be able to check out all my fave TV shows and movies in HD, and you know, have a bigger television!

I've been watching a lot of TV and films the past year, and I've noticed just how much I am loving some of the tough female character we're being presented with in the media right now. Here are a list of some of the iconic women I'm loving in pop culture right now.

Hermione Granger
Hermione was one of the first strong female roles that I fell in love with. She was both smart, talented, and beautiful - even if it took the boys ages to see this! She showed that being book smart was an attractive quality, and it really helped me make peace with being the girl with her nose ina  book all the time.

Aisha al-Fadhil
If you've never seen The Losers, nor read the comics, you won't have met Aisha before. In the comics, she is a kick ass lady who can really roll with the guys - and the same for the movies. I mean, how could I not have her on this list after she sent a rocket grenade on the bad guys at the docks?

Wonder Woman/Diana Prince
2017's DC savior! I didn't know much about Wonder Woman before the movie came out, and now she's on my list here! I love her good-hearted nature, innocence, and the way she will always try to save those she loves and for what is right. Can't wait to see more of her.

Daenerys Targaryen
She has progressed so much through Game of Thrones, and she's been my fave ever since she aided her brother with his golden crown. There's something about her that I'm drawn to - and not just the fact she has dragons!

Harley Quinn/Dr Quinzel 
Harley has been a fave for a few years now, back before Suicide Squad came out. Let's just ignore her murderous tendencies, as that's not why she's on the list! I like her in the Arkham games, and she was so funny in the Batman animated series. I've been reading all the rebirth comics of her's, and it's honestly the funniest comic book series I've ever read. She's both super smart and badass!

Annalise Keating
Ignore the fact she's aided murders and done a good handful of heinous things over the series thus far. As a lawyer, she is a BOSS in the courtrooms and has managed to win a handful of successful cases. Plus she was doing a great job as a law professor until all the death started... She's mainly on this list as I love Viola Davis with every fiber of my being.

Felicity Smoak
Ah, Miss Smoak... Or now Mrs Queen? I've only read a few of the Arrow comics, and didn't enjoy them much, but I love the TV show and all the others in the CW's Arrowverse. Felicity is again, like many on this list, a very smart woman, who has managed to use her brains over their brawn, many times.

I love characters who are smart and use that to their advantage - I can't get by with super ditzy characters these days, they don't seem 100% realistic anymore to me!

There are a host of others that I could have added to this list, such as: Mulan, Elle Woods, Gabriela Dawson, Sara Lance, Agent Melinda May, River Tam, Tauriel, Lieutenant Uhura, Merida, and so many others!

What women of pop culture do you this should be on the list? Let me know! Hope you have a great day and keep safe :)

  1. I swear the Harry Potter series should be called Hermione Granger. She is all the brains and skill behind everything!

    1. If it wasn't for her, the boys would have died in the Devils Snare in book 1!! xx

  2. such a good choice of women (even if I am 2 seasons behind on arrow and didn't know felicity married Oliver) anyway - Felicity used to be one of my major favourites but since falling behind on arrow (and meeting Emily) I don't really have the same kind of love for her, I can't pinpoint it but I feel a little let down by her.

    Melina May though is one badass awesome character - she is agents of shield. I still think my favourite female fictional character though is Brooke Davis - One Tree Hill.

    1. Ahh, sorry for the spoiler! It happened back in December, so hopefully you're not too far behind! Melinda May is some sort of spirit animal to me - she's baddass!! xx

  3. Yesss love these women, Danny has to be my favourite on this list, I need to see her on the Iron Throne like the queen she is

    1. I really hope she ends up on the Throne, but we shall see! xx
