The BAMF’est Ladies on TV


Who says all the badass motherf*ckers have to be the menfolk? In a generation raised on girl power  no one is cooler than these BAMF TV ladies. Not all of them can literally kick your ass, but every single one of them has a spine of steel and are tougher, smarter, and more stubborn than anyone else they come up against- whether that be the Hellmouth or the FBI, terrorists or an ongoing global war against stupidity. They may not all be your traditional BAMF’s (Austin we’re looking at your Hannah Montana addition) but they’re some of our favorite bad asses.
