"My favorite feminist heroine is Xena. She is fictional, but someone like her could have been real and she is a feminist icon. One of the fiercest and most righteous warriors of all of Ancient Greece, she is a great feminist role model. All through the show there were messages of how to be a feminist. She represents the fact that women do not have to be tied to any certain expectations and they should be free to live their lives anyway they choose. "
