    Is a strong woman necessarily always "tough chick"? Just curious.

    I dunno, but I'm looking at the multiple definitions of "strong."

    That said, what about Hermione Granger in Harry Potter? (Or does she not meet an age quota?)

    No age limits, just females.

    I am not too familiar with the Harry Potter series myself, but I am sure it is great addition to the list.

    I'll admit that some chick flicks are good. The really bad ones are bad because the character is poorly written, silly, or just vague. But with a great female lead, the word chick flick never comes to mind as I'm watching it.

    These are awesome films with strong female leads

    Hanging Up
    My Life Without Me
    Sophie's Choice
    The Hours
    Erin Brockovich
    Terminator
    In Her Shoes (Toni's character mostly)
    Japanese Story
    Juno
    Hard Candy
    Resident Evil

    NO....not in the way you likely are defining 'tough chick'

    The best female character I've seen in years is the Queen in 300.

    The first 20 minutes of that movie is a snapshot of the perfect male/female dynamic......

    Her support for her man is epic.....she knows what he needs when he needs it.....and he loves her to death....literally his last thought at the end of the movie is her....

    However...........Kate Beckinsale in the Underworld movies wasn't bad either

    Is it disturbing that I can only think of Sarah Conner from the Terminator?

    Yeah....I thought this was about women characters that are well-developed (as in, the writing and performance has complexity, not simply a one-dimensional character to drive the plot). Then halfway through the thread I noticed it became about "tough and strong women" characters, many of whom seem quite flat and unreal to me....

    I thought this was an interesting article on "strong female characters":
    Why Strong Female Characters Are Bad for Women | Overthinking It
    Makes some good points.
    Often a star was waiting for you to notice it. A wave rolled toward you out of the distant past, or as you walked under an open window, a violin yielded itself to your hearing. All this was mission. But could you accomplish it? (Rilke)
