Every time I think about female characters that need a fuck yeah, she’s awesome post, two characters always pop into my head right away: Jenny Shepard from NCIS and Elizabeth Weir from Stargate: Atlantis. I’m finally going to taken these two and show the world why I love them (and you should too!), starting with Jenny Shepard.

Jenny Shepard enters NCIS at the beginning of the third season as the new Director of NCIS. For the first two episodes, Jenny deals with the death of Kate, a member of Gibbs’ team, and Gibbs’ quest for revenge against the killer. She also has to play mediator between Gibbs and the Israeli government. To top it all off, Gibbs is a former partner of Jenny’s, both professionally and personally.

Seriously? One of the worst first few days ever.

After such auspicious beginnings, it should come as no surprise that Jenny never has it easy. We discover that she is searching for her own revenge against La Grenioulle (aka The Frog, aka Rene Benoit), a French arms dealer who, she believes, killed her father. Her need for revenge often blinds her to the consequences of her actions on those around her.

So, why is Jenny so awesome?

- She is the first female head of an armed federal agency.

- She knows what she wants and goes after it.

- She chooses what is best for her.

- She gets shit done.

- She was(is) a great agent.

- She once stole a boat and saved Ducky and Gibbs.

- She kicks ass (literal and metaphorical).

- She does not let anyone tell her who or what she should be.

- She goes out on her terms, and she takes the bad guys with her.

(This is all from memory, so if I made any mistakes, please let me know)
