Check out this list of all the amazing female characters in movies that have personified strength and empowerment.

Movies not only entertain, but they also educate. They teach and open up the audience's minds to new horizons of how life is and can be. For years, the 'hero' or the male protagonist managed to take away credits for being part of any movie. While women were given characters without or less story arc. However, this has changed over the years and stronger women characters have graced the screen. Audiences have watched the female characters in movies grow in the value they add to the stories.
