Well, that deserves a post, doesn't it? Go, us! Raise a glass of bubbly for the people who carry the next generation under their hearts while tiptoeing around on 4 inch heels, creating healthy meals, discovering cures for cancer, going into space, and generally not needing a significant other of any persuasion to make her feel alive and successful. You rock, girl.

Copying a popular idea, I will list my favorite women from television, movies, and literature. Unfortunately, the great female characters from tv are few and far between. Learn to write women, people!

1. Lessa and Menolly of Pern (Anne MacCaffrey) Great women for different reasons.

2. Harriet Vane (Dorothy L. Sayers)

3. Jo of Little Women (Louisa May Alcott)

4. Ripley of Alien

5. Major Samantha Carter of SG-1 (the early years, before she was too busy fluttering eyelashes)

6. Teyla of SGA

7. Beverly Crusher and Kathryn Janeway of Star Trek

8. Susan Ivanova of Babylon 5

9. Rose Tyler and River Song of Doctor Who

10. Zoe Washburne of Firefly

Other suggestions greatly appreciated!
