Leading Ladies

As a female, I'm always looking for my next favorite heroine in a novel. I've got plenty already--from shrewd-minded Scarlett O'Hara to the prickly and generally disagreeable Lisbeth Salander from the Millennium Series, they vary in appearance, personality, and morality. Oftentimes, I find myself drawn to flawed characters due to their realistic qualities (and let's face it--they're more entertaining to read about). Anyways, we want to know who some of your favorite heroines are. Whether classical or contemporary, share your favorite females below.
