40 TV and Movie Characters Who Were The Quintessential IT Girls
Claire Standish (The Breakfast Club)
The Breakfast Club‘s entire mission is to break down the stereotypes that high school perpetuates. Claire Standish is the IT girl stranded in detention with people below her social strata. She’s also a lot more than that.
Claire is an iconic character because she’s a smart, interesting person who’s been reduced to stereotypes. She likes being popular and looking pretty, but that’s not all there is to her. She rejects easy characterizations, just like all of the other characters in the film. Claire is an IT girl who’s not afraid to break the mold for what IT girls are supposed to be.
