I know most female readers do love kickass women, and these are some representations of such. But they’re complex kickass women. They have flaws and weaknesses and problems that don’t have easy answers. In other words, same rules as with the men: lots of character development.
Again the books from series feature my favorite moments in their storylines. Also, you can say whatever you want to say about Mockingjay, but Katniss was amazing in that book.
