Marilyn, Meryl, and every lady in between

Here at EW we think—scratch that, we know—that ladies rule. So much so, in fact, that we’ve dedicated a Comic Con panel every year to our favorite Women Who Kick Ass. Inspired by that sentiment, we worked with editor Jonathan Keogh and DJs Faroff and Tripp to assemble a supercut tribute to more than 300 incredible women from TV, film, and music. Whether they’re outsmarting the competition, busting guts with humor, or literally kicking some ass, formidable women deserve to be celebrated—even the occasional sociopath.
