(With the support of Creative Europe – MEDIA Programme of the European Union) | Whether she’s saving the day with her smarts or her physical strength, the Strong Female Character offers a fierce, independent answer to the damsel in distress. But this archetype who is, to some, a symbol of empowerment is to others a reductive cliche. Some regard her as too simplistic, little more than a marketing tool., rather than a welcome feminist corrective, resulting in characters that have been made so powerful—and so scrubbed of imperfections—that they lack any depth or development. Here’s our Take on who the Strong Female Character really is, her powers and her pitfalls, and whether she can evolve.
