By having such a wide assortment of different types of women, this list really showed how there were many ways for a girl to be strong and independent. It didn't matter what profession you had or where you came from in life, it was all about what you did and how you handled yourself.
This was an issue that was brought up in class, asking about some modern strong female characters and people brought up characters like Miranda Priestly from "The Devil Wears Prada". This list should give people a lot more names to add.
But the real question is, do all these women deserve to be on the list? Or are there others that should be on it instead? Look through and tell me what you think!
