What are some examples of "strong female characters" in film/television done correctly?

Agent Olivia Dunham from Fringe

Agent Dana Skully from The X-Files

Victoria Meretti from Longmire

Those are my top 3 from shows I'm watching now.

Recently watched You're Next, and the main girl in the movie was the best part, loved every minute of her performance.

Despite what you see from Twitter sjws, there are many strong females in TV and film already, and listing them all would take a lot more time than I have.

Strength is success, steadfastness and/or determination through adversity. Marge Gunderson, Sarah Connor, Clarice Starling are good examples. Their humanity is paramount in being 'strong'. A character like Rey from Star Wars isn't strong. She's a power fantasy, equivalent to Arnie's John Matrix in Commando.

Lolita from lolita

John Matrix, such a awesome character, I gotta watch Commando at least once a year just for this scene.

Which ones are dedicated mothers and wives and know their place in a man's world? That's the only correct answer.

Any womyn running around mowing baddies with guns or whatever is automatically shit.

Shes a pretty realistic example of a "strong woman" but that doesn't make her anymore pleasant i suppose.

Sonya from Mortal Kombat
>>
Sarah Connor
Emily blunt in edge of tomorrow
Luv in blade runner
Rey in star wars I guess but she's completely uninspired and used as a device for pandering
