10 Kick Ass Female Movie Heroes Everyone Should Admire

Kick Ass Women from the Big Screen

I'd love to say there are countless strong female roles in Hollywood movies and television, but that's like saying there are enough Cinnabon locations in the tri-county area - point is, there can never be enough. 

But, just like with cinnamon buns, we should rejoice when we have access to them, all the while hoping and working towards more.

Here are 10 strong-willed, powerful, take-no-shit kick ass women from the big screen - and that's worth celebrating. 

Jeni Marinucci is a freelance writer with two children. She has a guilty conscience, a love for humour, and a questionable home-haircut. After her children were old enough to make their own sandwiches, she returned to University to complete her B.A. in English Literature—a designation which has provided her with an extensive library and crushing student loans. When no teaching college wanted her, she had to choose between taking orders through a drive-thru window or from an editor. She chose the latter. Her neighbours wish she would cut her lawn.
