18 Low-Key Feminist Icons From Your Favorite CW Shows
Clarke Griffin (The 100)
Fans are torn about the possible feminism on The 100. Whether you’re upset about its lack of intersectionality, supportive of its unlikable female protagonists, or completely apathetic about it passing the Bechdel test, it doesn’t change the fact that Eliza Taylor‘s Clarke Griffin is the 100’s warrior leader and resident peacekeeper. The so-called Commander of Death has a keen mind for strategy, a strong moral compass, and a charismatic authority that often gives her the upper hand when negotiating with her co-leader, Bellamy Blake. Clarke is the spiritual cousin to Buffy Summers’s competence, perseverance, and skill.
