30 Years Of Kickass Women In Film In Under 3 Minutes

Doubt that women can be just as badass as men? Watch this video and then reevaluate.

While women are underrepresented in action films, many of the movies that did feature badass female leads in the past 30 years definitely did it right.

Video editor and film lover Clara Darko created a supercut of women action heroes being straight bosses as a tribute to her favorite leading ladies. The montage includes scenes from 61 films such as "The Matrix," "Aliens" and "Avatar." Everyone from Thelma to Louise to Nikita is kicking ass and taking names.

These women can defend us any day of the week.
