Let’s not get into the geek culture and pop culture argument when it comes to female role models.

Both cultures have their negative sides, but you have to admit that pop culture seems to be bursting at the seams with terrible female role models.

It is hardly surprising that the new age of geek culture is starting to attract as many women as it does men.

Here are 15 great female role models from fiction (TV and movies).

Due to the fact that so many characters are re-written and re-cast in modern TV shows and movies, I have stipulated which characters and from what.

1. Dana Scully (X-Files)

supernatural creature, DON'T, UNDERESTIMATE, WOMAN, ENS,

Noted for her intelligence and not her looks, she was a role model for both women and men during the X-Files era.

Sensible and professional, she was the woman all thinking men wanted as a wife, and she was a woman that younger girls could look up to.2

She earned her position in the FBI, always did the morally right thing, stuck to the rules, and often used honest logic to counter the eccentricity of her FBI partner.

2. Ellen Ripley (Aliens)

person, film, action film, profession, gadget,

She is professional and level headed, which are great traits in themselves and make her worthy of inclusion as a great female role model.

But, you also have to take your hat off to this woman’s ability to adapt.

She can adapt instantly to different personalities, positions and situations.

She also shows women that loving a child is precious, even if the child is not yours.

3. Aeryn Sun (Farscape)

black and white, film noir, model, Arg,

Born to be a soldier and eventually learns to love, yet she never loses her authority and strong will.2

You never see her throw a hissy fit or burst into tears because somebody called her a name.2

After somebody has a rant at her, the most common thing she says is, β€œAre you finished?” She is not perfect, but no person is.

She makes her mistakes, but she is a powerful and strong woman that often overshadows and rescues the male heroes.
