    J3ster thank you for starting it. It is an important one and something that actually affects us all at many different levels

      Tolkien wrote about Middle Earth as a way of overcoming the terrible things he saw in the war. Guess what the gender-ratio was among his comrades...
      Besides, I always felt the Tolkien characters were a bit larger than life, the wizards and Hobbits especially were pretty gender-neutral in their portrayal. Picture Merry and Pippin as young women and almost nothing would change. Female Gandalf would have a much less impressive beard but I think we can forgive that.

        Noen, nonono, Hobbit girls are pictured as sensible ladies (except Frodo's auntie, of course) - and those two are really goofy) they could only be males in their teens

          Idk LeicaEnergizer ...the Tookish "oddness" could make them readable as late teen early 20s girls imho. Some of the shit I got into in that age range was the sort of stupid that they are.

            In general, it doesn't matter to me the gender of the person on the paper, but at the same time I do love the baddass women work outs(looking forward to starting Athenas Playbook in the future!) I want to be strong and healthy not a skinny mini!
            But if I had to choose......My Heroine is Lara Croft from Tomb Raider ...HUGE fan I am sure there is something out there close, but if it had her name on it I would jump on it in a heartbeat lol.

                  There is a Welsh warrior princess called Gwenllian fetch Gruffydd, who was supposedly quite bad ass - though she wasn't very successful militarily I'm afraid.

                  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gwenllian_ferch_Gruffydd

                  There is also Rhiannon in the Mabinogion, who is a sort of goddess figure... well, it's quite complicated... she's certainly a noteworthy figure in Welsh literature...

                    ... and as a popular female historical figure, Boudica may also be of use:
                    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boudica

                    Also, since being a good girl isn't always fun... We already have Vicious, Harpy and Banshee. What about "Witch" and "Sorceress"?

                    "Cowgirl" and "Karate Girl" could also work very well in my opinion...

                      How about a workout or program honouring female soldiers, policemen, EMS?

                        Well, there are lots of words said already... But still, does anybody remember She-Ra? She's been my idol since I was 3.
                        As for some bad-ass action... Girls are really good at rock-climbing. So why not to make a rock-climber workout or a even couple (including the pull-up bar, coordination and some stretching) with a DareGirl rocking hard?

                          I don't know as this forum is so long, but has anyone suggested Boudica? She was a Welsh Celtic queen. Although she was eventually defeated by the Romans many a legionnaire would soil himself at the mention of her.

                            ALSO!!! Nzinga Mbande possibly the most vicious badass warrior queen. That woman took shit from no one.
