Daria Morgendorffer (Daria)
Just the opening credits for Daria —featuring Splendora's "You're Standing On My Neck"—make you happy to be a feminist! Daria was sarcastic, droll, and way too smart to deal with the shallowness that plagued most of her fellow high school class. This character spoke about everything, from body image to racism to aethism.The best part? Daria wasn't the only feminist on her show. Jane was a super feminist. And Jodie, who often spoke about the pressure to be a "token Black girl" was a feminist. Ah, if only every generation of young, impressionable young women could grow up with a powerhouse like Daria.
