Episode 40 – Just Some Ass Kickers Pop Culture Embassy

This week we were inspired by a Wired Magazine article: Geek Culture’s 26 Most Awesome Female Ass Kickers!

Check out the gallery for full size versions of these pictures and short descriptions of the characters and the reasons why we love them.

Also, Regina was on another awesome podcast. Make sure to check out Pixel Response and their new series, Breaking Balls: Gender Politics in Media. The Doc is on their first episode focusing on female video game characters.

We would love to hear about your favorite female ass kickers! Make sure to comment here or follow us on Twitter. You can even like our page on Facebook.

Until next time, game on!

Regina is the founder and lead ambassador of The Geek Embassy. Studying and writing about geeks and geek culture is Regina’s favorite thing to do when she’s not reading student papers, dancing an excessive amount of calories away, or chasing after her daughter. Inclined towards mobile and social gaming online, Regina also loves a good round of 7 Wonders, Qwirkle, Small World, or Lords of Waterdeep. Someday, she hopes to actually take part in a D&D campaign so she can officially “roll” a character and role play her as a devious, highly intelligent mischief maker, which would be nothing like she is in real life.

  1. Sweet!!! I might argue with a few of your choices, but I love that there are choices! I'll have to think about this a while, and see what else I can come up with. Nice job, Regina!

  2. I love that I had to go back and rethink my list of five. It's not that long ago there would not have been more than five female ass kickers to pick from! So many great characters these days. And now that I'm thinking about it, I really feel like Snow White should have been higher on my list. 🙂
