NUMBER 3: Beatrice from Much Ado About Nothing

This girl is the master at the battle of the wits. She always seems to best Benedick, her rival-slash-love, and is definitely the heart of the play. She is one of Shakespeare’s most well-written characters, female or no, and never fails to bring the humor. She has a beautiful inner strength, which shows most especially when she is fiercely defending her cousin against the terrible accusations thrown toward her and whenever she has to face a male character – she is generally treated as an equal in many respects.
