With The Hunger Games a box office hit and the highly anticipated second season of Game of Thrones only a week away, it’s a good time to be a fan of powerful female characters. There are plenty of strong women on television (though, it feels important to add, still far fewer than strong men), and a list of female badasses on television would be surprisingly long. But who are the true women warriors of television, the survivors and soldiers? Who can you imagine hefting a sword or shouldering a crossbow, going into battle, and coming out the other side? For your consideration:

**Author’s note: I wanted this to be a top 10, but couldn’t come up with a 10th that I felt equated to the others. Get on this, TV writers!

Runners Up: Sydney Bristow (Alias), Susan Ivanova (B5), Victoria Barkley (The Big Valley), Echo (Dollhouse), Turanga »
