Bold and badass – these words perfectly describe the fierce portrayal on these daredevil women characters on screen. This women's day let celebrate the characters from Star World's shows that inspired us to break the norms and startle the world.

Alex Parrish (Quantico)
Alex Parrish, an Asian American girl who joins as a recruit at the FBI Academy, Quantico, Virginia. Shortly after that is wrongly accused of being a prime suspect for a terrorist attack. However, Alex fights back and raises right from the ashes. Her 'never say die attitude' makes her one of the most iconic and powerful characters on television. Alex reminds us that although we must abide by rules, we shouldn't be afraid to stand up for ourselves even if that means that we stand alone. In a similar manner our very own desi girl, Priyanka Chopra has become a fierce role model for women as conquered several challenges and successfully paved the way for Indian women in Hollywood while putting India on the global map. Way to go PeeCee... you have surpassed all our expectations and made us proud beyond measure!

Annalise Keating (How to Get Away with Murder)
Annalise Keating had a picture-perfect life but who was to say what fate will bring. In the blink of an eye, Annalise went from riches to rags but her self-confidence and inner mettle is what kept her going. An epitome of confidence, she fearlessly started her journey to rebuild her empire, maybe even stronger the second time around. Annalise was truly her own hero and an inspiration for us to never give up. In real life as well, Viola Davis has been an inspiration and has risen against all odds to emerge victorious as one of Hollywood leading actors

Elizabeth Keen (Blacklist)
Another icon for strong women is Elizabeth Keen. The FBI profiler definitely gives hope to women across the world and send out a strong message asking them not to allow their past to define their present and future. Keen demonstrated that no matter how mysterious and traumatic the past may be, you can always use it as a propelling force to move forward. Her journey is a testament to the fact that very bad experience is nothing but a lesson that helps us grow. Bold and beautiful, she would take a bullet for the ones' she loves yet stand her ground and fight for what she truly believes in. Elizabeth has definitely taught us that – What doesn't kill, it makes you stronger!

Cookie Lyon (Empire)
Cookie Lyon in every way has refined and gone on to break stereotypes surrounding leading female characters on television. As a woman of immense substance, Cookie knows her worth and would go to any extent to righteously take back what belonged to her. Cookie cherishes her family and would ride or die for them. She will go through hell just to make sure her family gets to heaven proving to us that you can still have a heart of gold beneath an amour of steel. Cookie is undeniably one of the most unique and bold characters of all time. The boss lady best displays how to command respect rather than demanding it!

Carrie Mathison (Homeland)
No list of badass women is complete without the fierce Carrie Mathison. Carrie's strength both physical as well as mental is the testament to the fact that no problem is too big to overcome. Faced with several adversities, time and again, Carrie has displayed unimaginable courage only to stay true to her purpose.
