One of my top literary heroines is Anne of Green Gables, hence my avatar. I have a big soft spot for Jo March from Little Women too.
And there are more.
Who are your favourites?
 
Sebastian Dangerfield. Leonie de St Vire/Bonnard. Sand dan Glokta. Let me think ...
 
Umm... I like the heroine in Kushiel's Dart ... and Stranger in a Strange Land ... I like the characters in my favorite books ... in general.

I like characters who are messed up ... I don't have a heroine I identify with.

I used to read Anne of Green Gables when I was a kid. Very tame books .... I have happy memories of them.
 
I reserve the right to completely change my mind, but here are the first few I thought of:
  • Dorian Gray
  • Holly Golightly
  • Lorelei Lee
  • Psmith
  • Nero Wolfe
  • R Daneel Olivaw
There's a fun game to be had where you quote either Jo March or Morrissey and ask people to guess who said it. For example:

"I'm ugly and awkward and I always say the wrong thing."

Or

"Girls are so queer you never know what they mean."

Oh my god. How could I forget Holly Golightly? I feel like I've committed a crime.

Of course ... that's who.

Also.... Beatrix Kiddo. I forgot her too.

I think the first is Morrissey and the second is Jo March.
 
Beatrix Kiddo is a cinematic character. You probably mean Lisbeth Salander.

If movies were included, I'd have Amélie Poulain.

Oh..... I like Amelie too.

Yes, Lisbeth Salander is almost as good ... but Beatrix was such a good mom. I liked that about her.
