Tired of waiting for the usual suspects to declare another Year of the Woman? Never fear. The Alliance of Women Film Journalists celebrates women all year every year—but especially this year! In honor of the 10th anniversary of AWFJ’s founding, we’re publishing the AWFJ Wonder Women project, an annotated list of the top 55 fictional female characters in movies from the birth of cinema to the present. Every Monday from Aug. 1 through Aug. 29, we’ll release the names of eleven fabulous women characters on our list, counting down to our members’ number one favorite. Get ready to cheer for our bevy of kickass heroines, outspoken working women, good-time gals and other unforgettable characters who comprise the AWFJ Wonder Women.
