18 Low-Key Feminist Icons From Your Favorite CW Shows
Rebekah Mikaelson (The Originals)
At the core of feminism is the fight for a woman’s right to choose her own path. For many of the women on this list, that means pursuing careers as CEOs, superheroes, and warrior leaders, but fighting evil isn’t the only way to be strong. Rebekah Mikaelson is an Original Vampire with nearly unbridled power, but all she wants is to be normal. Rebekah has to struggle for centuries to achieve a goal that, for all intents and purposes, should be impossible, but the wisest and most competent of the strongest vampires known to man finesses her way into the normal human life she so craves with the love of her life. Rebekah knows what she wants and won’t let anything stop her from getting it.
