I want Alice in first place because she damn well deserves to be after everything she has been through, not to mention that she has come away from it all, alive and well. Perhaps her enhancements curtesy of Umbrella have a lot to do with that, but she surely is a top woman and the girl power in this one speaks for itself.


I couldn't create this list without including the wonderful Mulan. If taking your fathers place during a fierce war and fighting for your country and dignity isn't considered heroic and full of girl power, I just don't know what is. She braved the harshness of preparing for battles with dangerous warriors and pulled it off.

Thelma & Louise

Another two girls I couldn't leave off this list. The movie itself screams ultimate girl power, from the pair of them. In an attempt to escape their boring lives and leave town to explore and find something thrilling to get on with, the girls find themselves in a spot of trouble along the way. The cruelty of the climax is astonishing.

  Lara Croft

Yet another woman I couldn't leave hanging. Perhaps Lara and Alice should meet one another and just cause absolute hysteria among their fans. Together, they could probably take over the world with all of there amazing combat skills and intelligence. Lara, like many other girl power icons, is trained to kill and protect.


I wanted to include Andy because I feel for her. She works for the most outrageous fashion designer in New York, yet still manages to do her job properly, without slip ups. If I had been in her shoes and had to work for a horrible boss like that, I would have long ago put my foot in it. Kudos to Andy for sticking it out.


The oh so naive and ditzy blonde from Clueless has girl power stamped all over her forehead in that movie, it's hard to not notice. After being led to believe she isn't succeeding in anything at school or in her own personal life, makes a go of changing and improving her lifestyle. She tries to discover herself.


No list is ever complete without the lovable Tracy so here she is. Just like many of the other girls on this list, she makes a go of finding her true self and putting it on display for the whole world to see and talk about. She is brave, cunning and most of all loyal. Nothing screams girl power like beating the classy chicks.
