Heroines Unite!

Cinema, especially the action genre, still is a often male dominated world, where women often only serve as an eye-pleasing sidekick (nothing wrong with that in my book, hehe), but sometimes they are the main attraction and not just for their good looks, they kick the shit out of everyone else! You go, girl! More power to you!

List is a work in progress and in order of their year of production, if it is a series of movies I just included the first one.

I will add a movie whenever it comes to my mind or if someone suggests one (feel free!).
