I know she’s first of all a book character, but I really like the version given by the BBC in, of course, The Musketeers. I’ve tried to put together a list of reasons why Constance Bonacieux is a legitimate role model and badass.
She is a strong female character who is not afraid of answering back, fighting for what she believes is right.
She wants to be treated as equal in a world completely dominated by men that govern her independence and control her life (but without whom, she realizes, she cannot live, because a woman at that time couldn’t survive without a man).
The Musketeers respect her, trust her, fight at her side, love her. She is a friend and a companion. She is one of them.
LOOK WHO’S FIGHTING AND WHO’S HOLDING THE BABY :)
She is strong without giving away her femininity, sweetness and kindness. She can shoot at someone and then take care of a child and never stop being badass, because badass is an interior characteristic, not made by leather jackets and killer looks.
Also: how cute is she? ^-^
Which other female or male character in a tv show inspires/has inspired you? Let me know in the comments. Also: who would you like to see next?
