Veronica Mars (Veronica Mars)
Veronica Mars is mostly just the story of a tiny blonde girl who takes down high-ranking, powerful men that have been allowed to abuse their power because they’re functioning in patriarchy. She does this without superstrength or weapons, she just uses her mind. Instead of letting the worst year of her life silence her (her best friend dies, she gets raped, her mom leaves, and all of her friends abandon her), she becomes stronger and vows to never let other people control her life again. She also protects others from suffering through the same things she did, even if they don’t deserve her compassion, because she’s a legitimately good person.
