There might not be a stronger woman on television than Annalise Keating. Played by the incredible Viola Davis, who made history as the first black woman to win the Primetime Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series, Keating is someone who doesn't take any crap from anyone.

The 100 started as a show about a group of criminal teens sent down to a post-apocalyptic Earth to see if it was inhabitable. Throughout six seasons, it has evolved into many different things and included a time jump of over 100 years. But one thing has remained consistent and that's the leader, Clarke Griffin (Eliza Taylor). Clarke acts as the leader of her people, often outranking the adults and government appointed officials. She stands up in the face of danger almost every episode and is always out to save her people. She's the person who must make some unbelievably difficult decisions because she's the strongest. It's very possible that Clarke is the strongest woman in all of TV. Not to be outdone, the show also includes Raven Reyes (Lindsey Morgan) and Octavia Blake (Marie Avgeropoulos), among others, who are all great female characters.

In the 1980s, there was a syndicated women's pro wrestling show called the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling or GLOW for short. In 2017, Netflix released a fictionalized take on the series titled GLOW and it has been a huge hit. The third season premieres this summer and the show has won a handful of awards.

When we first meet Leslie, she is pretty annoying. But after a few episodes, she grows on us and we end up loving her. She loves her job, fights for her beliefs, and accomplishes so many goals throughout the show. From City Councillor to head of the Midwest branch of the National Park Service, Leslie does it all. The series also features great women like Ann (Rashida Jones), April (Aubrey Plaza), and Donna (Retta).

While Jane isn't an intimidating character like others on this list, she's just as strong. We've watched her deal with everything thrown at her for almost 100 episodes. Rodriguez helps make the role feel truly special and she was awarded a Golden Globe win.

There was no way this couldn't be included on this list. Orange is the New Black is a Netflix original filled with strong women up and down the cast. This series tells the story of the inmates at an all-female prison and it boasts some of the most memorable characters of the past decade.

It's understandable if you've never heard of this show. Girlboss came out in 2017 and only lasted one season on Netflix before being canned, most likely to save money for bigger budget projects. This Netflix original was based on the story of Sophia Amoruso, who started the online fashion retailer, Nasty Gal.

In just one season, Sabrina has gone against the gender bias of the witch world, stood up to the treacherous High Preist, risen people from the dead, and burned angels to death. There may not be a scarier woman in all of television right now. Sabrina has done more in 20 episodes than most characters can in 100.

The definition of a powerful woman. Kara Danvers, better known as Supergirl, has all the extraordinary powers that her cousin Superman has. Since it premiered in 2015, Supergirl has focused on Danvers' adventures on one of the many different Earths within the multiverse.
