We’re not going to say there are enough female protagonists in the world of television, but there have certainly been many amazing ones added to the fold in recent years, and now we want to know who your favorite is!
In order to be eligible for this poll, the character has to be on a show that is currently running…and she has to still be alive, of course. In order to keep things manageable, we’ve stuck with female leads, which means that there are a lot of amazing women who didn’t make the cut because they are part of ensemble casts. But we’ve still got some awesome choices on here – badass shieldmaiden Lagertha of History Channel’s Vikings, the permanent and powerful fusion that is Garnet from Cartoon Network’s Steven Universe, Penny Dreadful‘s mysterious and tormented – yet brave – Vanessa Ives, and many many more.
You can vote for up to two women at a time, so if you want to vote for more than two total, you’ll have to submit your votes in rounds of two.
Please keep the comment section of this poll free from hate, rudeness, and personal attacks.
Poll closes Monday August 10th at 9:00 PM EDT.
Voting is unlimited, but Polldaddy has an internal anti-bot mechanism. If you vote too fast, it may freeze you out for a few hours. We cannot shut this off, unfortunately, nor do we know how long you’ll be shut out for. We apologize for the inconvenience.
VOTE FOR ABBIE MILLS. She is second place right now.
