A strong female character doesn't necessarily have to be physically capable, but when we see a TV lady who can hold her own, it's hard not to get excited.
There are many incredible female characters on TV these days, and whether they are giving closing statements in a courtroom, or getting in fist fights with the guys, they are all fierce in their own ways.
In a time where women are speaking up and going toe to toe with the men in power, it is becoming increasingly relevant to see these sorts of women portrayed in the media.
There will never be enough examples of strong women on television, but there are certainly more now than there have ever been. Here are 17 women of TV who would win a bar fight!
Jessica Jones on Jessica Jones
We all know that Jessica Jones would win in a bar fight because we have seen Jessica win several bar fights.
Betty Cooper on Riverdale
Betty might seem sweet and demure, but we all know she has a dark side. Once the cabaret wig goes on, be prepared. Dark Betty is out.

Joe may have gotten the best of Peach in the end, but I'll be damned if that woman didn't put up on epic fight beforehand.

With those black gloves and that smirk, Theo can more than hold her own against ghosts, ghouls, and anything else that stands in her way.
