Back when I was in high school, I loved watching the Spice Girls. They sing, they dance, and they act -- they’re very entertaining. As a matter of fact, even until now, I wish that they would get back together and make music until they’re old. Because to me, they will forever be my number one girl band.
But aside from that, I also love the Spice Girls because they were passionate about their “girl power” advocacy. I’m pretty sure that they didn’t invent the term. As a matter of fact, in an interview I watched back then, Geri Halliwell, or Ginger Spice, said that even before they existed, “girl power” was already used by Madonna. But though this is the case, you can’t deny the fact that the Spice Girls helped helped popularize it.
So in honor of “girl power” and the Women’s Day, I’d like to present strong female characters that give “girl power” a modern twist. These characters are from one of my favorite TV shows at the moment, Nikita. They are smart, strong, and independent.
