Memorable Women in Literature

I remember the women and girls in these books because they are fearless, or create fear. Are admirable or repulsive. Charming or cruel. Funny or infinitely sad. This list is a compilation of various best lists for adults, young adults, and children along with personal favorites. Who are your favorites? How many have you read?
