Female characters from Rey and Jyn to Wonder Woman and Harlequin are known both for thier beauty but also for thier stregnth.  How do these characters "own thier dreams" and move beyond being someone's girlfriend? The damsel in distress. The evil seductress. The tough girl who dies. Why are so many female characters such cookie-cutter archetypes?
