From fearless femme fatales and warrior women to super heroes and bookish beauties, women can really save the day (and steal the spotlight while they're at it.) Check out the Top 10 Movie Heroines!

No.10: Mattie Ross in True Grit

Hailee SteinfeldHailee Steinfeld as determined dynamo Mattie in True Grit
 

No-nonsense teenager Mattie Ross (played by Hailee Steinfeld) takes ahold of the proverbial reigns in the western flick True Grit and elects herself as head of the family and with an unrivaled sense of determination seeks to avenge her father and help her family by tracking down his horses.

No.9: Sarah Connor

Sarah Connor, the fearless female at the center of the Terminator films, has made a lasting impresion on audiences over the years.

No.8: Harriet the Spy

Harriet the Spy Harriet the Spy uses her intellect to detect
 

Making the leap from book to the silver screen, Harriet isn't exactly a hardboiled detective, but for someone her age her supersleuthing skills are unparalleled, showing us that it doesn't take a man to solve a mystery.

No.7: Rogue from X-Men

Anna PaquinAnna Paquin plays Rogue, one of the original X-Men
 

Comic book cutie Rogue is part of the original X-Men (although she's actually an X-Woman) and when this superheroine hit the silver screen she won over a whole new audience (not to mention her original comic book fans).

No.6: Hermione Granger

Hermione Granger shows us that when it comes to weapons, the most important thing to keep sharp is your mind! Harry Potter's library-loving best friend get the whole crew out of more than a few sorcery scrapes using her incredible booksmarts.

No.5: Princess Leia

One of the most memorable movie heroines for generations of movie-goers, Princess Leia from Star Wars has the pride of a princess but the will of a warrior.

No.4: Arriety

ArriettyArrietty shows that you can make a big difference even when you're small
 

You don't have to be big to make a big impact, and Arrietty from The Secret World of Arrietty proves it. The pint-sized heroine may not "live large", but she opens up a whole new world for a human boy, Sho.

No.3: Snow White

Kristen Stewart Kristen Stewart in Snow White and the Huntsman
 

 Whether it's the old-fashioned sweetheart from the Disney animated film, the comical cutie from Mirror Mirror or the sword-wielding Snow White from Snow White and the Hunstman, Snow White is a heroine whose honesty and excellent character cannot be defeated.

No.2: Dorothy Gale

DorothyDorothy never doubts that she can find the root of a problem
 

When confronted with the inexplicable, like being deposited in Oz  after being swept away by a tornado, it's Dorothy's open heart, persistence and faith in her friends that ultimately solves everyone's dilemmas and sends her home.  

No.1: Katniss Everdeen

Katniss EverdeenKatniss is the ultimate heroine, combining savvy street smarts with athletic ability and drive
 

Clever, cunning and quick on her feet, Katniss Everdeen (played by Jennifer Lawrence) from The Hunger Games shows her character by sacrificing herself for her sister Prim, and paves the road to revolution by outsmarting and defying the oppressive regime she lives under by refusing to play by the rules.

CaptJolee: exactly. Pink_Cool_Girl: is that all you got out of my post? because if that alone stood out to you, then obviously you do care about it. We all have different opinions and I like Grace, that's the end of it. I know you like the Clairvoyants. But you don't have to act like Grace is the worst thing in the world because she's not. At least, most of America thinks that. It's not like she's gonna try to or probably even be able to stop them from being famous and having shows of their own. You go ahead and keep rooting for them, and I'll keep rooting for Grace. Sound good?
