*Along with a few more answers from the original Reddit thread, as well as this one from r/MenWritingWomen.

1.Lily and Robin from How I Met Your Mother

oh sweetie, i know it's nice to be groped by strangers but nothing beats the rush you get when that one special person looks at you

2.Debora from Baby Driver

guy asks, what are you doing tomorrow and she answers, you tell me

3.Penny from The Big Bang Theory

she's sitting on the couch with a santa hat on

4.Beth on Yellowstone

she says, you are the trailer park i am the tornado

5.Ally — and really all the female characters — in Ally McBeal

6.Teresa from The Maze Runner

7.Vicki in The Waterboy (and really any love interest from an Adam Sandler movie)...

8....including all the wives in the Grown-Ups films, but especially Sally

9.Olivia in The Prestige

10.Princess Tilde in Kingsman: The Secret Service

she's locked up and tells the guy, if you save the world we can do it in the asshole

11.Really all the women in the Kingsman films, actually

guy says, i'm busting for a pee actually and then the woman responds with, you can do it on me if you want

12.Jade in The Hangover

she greets the guys and gets excited that they found her baby

13.Scully from The X-Files

closeup of her with her badge on

14.Tammy in Twin Peaks

15.Liz in Shaun of the Dead

<div><p>"She has some funny lines, and the actor does a great job with the thin material she’s given, but the character has no personality beyond just saying 'Shaun!' in an exasperated voice every so often. It’s hard to see why Shaun and her are supposed to be an item, and why we’re supposed to be invested in them repairing their relationship; they don’t seem to have much in common. She just seems like the stereotype of the ... girlfriend who represents the end of freedom and of fun, rather than an engaging person in her own right."</p><p>—<a href="" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:u/AreKidK;elm:context_link;itc:0;sec:content-canvas" class="link ">u/AreKidK</a></p></div><span> Rogue Pictures / Everett Collection</span>

16.Alabama in True Romance

her saying, i'm gonna hop in the tub and get all wet and slippery and soapy then i'm gonna lie in the waterbed, not even bother to dry off and watch x-rated movies

17.Katy on Letterkenny

she stands with her arms crossed wearing a bikini

18.Mollie in Ford v Ferrari

she reads a magazine in the yard as men fight in front of her

19.Sévérine in Skyfall

<div><p>"Just...the whole thing about her character. Also especially skeevy is the fact Bond knew she was sex trafficked, and still boned her after sneaking up on her in her shower!"</p><p>—<a href="" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:u/Corginos_Dorkus;elm:context_link;itc:0;sec:content-canvas" class="link ">u/Corginos_Dorkus</a></p></div><span> Francois Duhamel/©Columbia Pictures / courtesy Everett Collection</span>

20.Alice in Closer

she says, lying is the most fun a girl can have without taking her clothes off but it's better if you do

21.Mary Jane in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man

she clings to spider-man as they hang from a building

22.Irene Adler in Sherlock

<div><p>"It baffles me they portrayed her as a lesbian dominatrix blackmailer who falls in love with Sherlock. She was never a villain in the original <i>Scandal in Bohemia,</i> instead she was a lady who just wanted to be left alone and marry for love. Sherlock was the villain in the story because he aided the scandalous king. In a <i>SiB</i> Irene is the one who is victorious, but in <i>Sherlock</i> not only does she need Moriarty's help to pull off her scheme, she also loses to Sherlock and needs to be rescued by him later. And her whole thing about being a lesbian in love with a man ended up going nowhere."</p><p>—<a href="" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:u/Puncomfortable;elm:context_link;itc:0;sec:content-canvas" class="link ">u/Puncomfortable</a></p></div><span> BBC</span>

23.Finally, let's end on one character that, yes, was written by a woman, but has "written by a man" energy: Anastasia Steele from 50 Shades of Grey

<div><p>"Every time I remember <i>50 Shades of Grey</i> exists, I want to projectile vomit in rage. Literally both a book and movie about a one-dimensional woman whose entire self-worth is validated by an abusive man, that manages to somehow be even worse than <i>Twilight</i>."</p><p>—<a href="" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:u/BoinkBoinkEtAliae;elm:context_link;itc:0;sec:content-canvas" class="link ">u/BoinkBoinkEtAliae</a></p></div><span> Chuck Zlotnick/Focus Features / courtesy Everett Collection</span>
