This contest has given us all the opportunity to celebrate and support the Women in Fiction we love so dearly, characters that are important to praise loudly and proudly. So long as it is still a challenge to convince publishers and producers to give us art featuring powerful and interesting female characters, it is important for us to show them that this is something we desperately want. Films, shows, games, books, and comics with female leads are not a hard sell, so long as you give us quality. Provide us with boss ladies, and we'll debate which one is the bossest for months at a time…

For this reason, we'd love it if you shared this story and celebrated the winners, the finalists, and the characters you think were your personal favorites. Let's keep this positive and uplifting, and take pride in the victories we gained while steeling ourselves to work together for more victories to come!

And the Winner is...
