We’ve read a LOT of books with strong female protagonists. Some of the characters shared certain traits that society generally deems as ‘badass’. Alternatively, some characters, though clearly ‘badass’, have very unique traits that, in our opinion, are what makes them badass. These are not the common, generally accepted traits we are familiar with.

What do you think are the traits that make an awesome, strong, female character badass?
