Strong Female Characters On Screen
To celebrate International Women's day this Sunday 8th March - we have put together our favourite strong female characters. From changing the status quo, enrolling in Harvard Law School or being a ruthless Boss Ass B****- We love to put a twist on our lists so we have paired up a Gweniss bag to each babe!
Hermione Granger in Harry Potter
"Hermione made it OK for girls to be the smartest in the room. To be a leader, the one with the plan, she's not just a role for me, she's a symbol. I am deeply proud to have played her." – Emma Watson.
Katherine Johnson in Hidden Figures
“Her ability to excel in an environment that was not welcoming to her, and advocate for herself and others in the process, is a stirring example of poise and perseverance.” – MyDomaine.com
Miranda Priestly - The Devil Wears Prada
“The most interesting piece to me was the responsibility lying on the shoulders of a woman who was the head of a global brand and fashion empire. In business terms, I wanted to know what that was like.” – Meryl Streep
Imperator Furiosa - Mad Max
“George (Director) has this innate understanding that women are just as complex and interesting as men, and he was really interested in discovering all of that. I think through just his need and want for the truth he actually made an incredible feminist movie.” – Charlize Theron
“I've had more young women come up to me and say, 'I went to law school because of Elle Woods. It's very incredible to see how long movies can last and how important they can be to young people, generation after generation." – Reese Witherspoon
We hope you have enjoyed these! Let us know your favourite female character on screen!
